First and foremost I love to travel. Ever since I studied abroad in Costa Rica in college I have been hooked. My style of travel is not to plan much and to just go with the flow. I'm not a big fan of hotels or anything that is really touristy. I prefer to go off the beaten path in search of authenticity. I enjoy learning languages, meeting new people, and gaining an understanding of other's cultures and beliefs. When traveling I love to try the local cuisine and discover the local hang-outs - no chains!
Aside from travel I love to be outdoors. Nothing brings me more peace than hiking. I also enjoy camping, rock climbing, kayaking, swimming and cycling.
My life motto is to live without regrets.
