I am originally from Maryland, but since I left home for college, I've lived in Charlotte, NC, Orlando, FL and now I live in Providence, RI. I love to visit new places! When I was young, my dad was always taking us on new road trips across the country (although, we never made it past Missouri since we always drove).
My number one love is probably food! It's what I studied in college, what I do for a living, and my favorite thing to explore when I travel. As soon as I plan a trip, my first destination picks are what restaurants and cafes I want to visit!
Growing up, my dad was very outdoors-y. We always camped when we were on vacation, and he eventually (thank goodness) invested in a pop-up camper for us to use. Since it was ours, it was always very important to take good care of it. At home and on vacation, my dad has shaped me into the person I am today - I am always about being clean and organized, but also spending a lot of time out of the house (or camper) exploring the world around me.. whether it's just my back yard, or in a completely new part of the country!
The most important things for me when I go on vacation is being close to points of interest that I plan to visit, and sleeping in a hotel/home that I feel completely comfortable in. Next to location, it is hands-down most important to feel comfortable with the people I'm staying with, and to feel comfortable with the cleanliness of the place I'm staying.
