When I travel I like to feel at home and I look for a neighborhood that is the least touristy. I travel to see art, including unique regional handmade small-craft art, and to eat nourishing, local, authentic slow-food. I like to spend a lot of time walking and being spontaneous. As a guest I am clean and quiet, thoughtful and accountable.
My favorite places in the U.S. are Portland, OR, New York City, Desolation Wilderness (CA).... and many others. In Europe I also love Amsterdam, Venice, Florence. Some places I would most like to visit are Spain, Mongolia, Russia, and Iceland.
