I am a graduate student at University of Oxford, though my studies come as part of a career change. I had been a teacher for years, and find myself in England through an exceptional good stroke of luck. I have always considered myself a conscientious and respectful person. I like to cook, to explore new cities, to read, and sit around with friends and play music. When I travel, I tend to do it through food. I love to explore local restaurants, get to know locals over a meal, and have them help guide me to the next destination. I'm looking forward to exploring many new places around Europe this year, as my studies have me in greater proximity to places I've wanted to see all my life.
