I am currently residing in Philadelphia and working as a graphic designer and marketing manager at a magazine. I am a trained urban planner and love reading/creating maps. My number 1 travel buddy is my fiance Paul, who I drag along on all my adventures. He is based out of Manchester, UK at the moment.
When traveling I try to visit areas that are off the path of most tourists; a good vacation might include a trip to a tunnel/sewer system, a disused railway, or an abandoned site full of graffiti. I try to fill my days and nights with many activities and tend to only need a place to sleep. I love to chat with hosts though and benefit from the local knowledge!
