I work full-time for a non-profit whose purpose and mission I love - helping teenagers and young adults by providing transitional housing, life skills, and drug and alcohol counseling. This is after working too many years as a CPA at a public accounting firm. When not working - I want to be outside in the garden or playing - hiking, biking, kayaking, snow shoeing or cross country skiing - or inside reading or cooking. My favorite style of travel is camping -either backpacking or car camping (most recent trip was to Escalante in Southern Utah). But I do enjoy city visits - museums, tall buildings, ethic restaurants and each city's history and sense of place. My preference is to meet local people and get a feel of each place I visit, not just be a detached "tourist" snapping pictures or looking out of a tour bus window.
