I'm Cassandra, I was born and raised in Santa Cruz, CA and am now working as a PhD student at the University of Oslo, Norway. I do most of my traveling with my Norwegian fiancé (Tore) who is also a PhD student. I know what you're thinking...nerds! That may be true, but this nerdy couple loves adventure and exploring new places...though my current goal now is to show him more of the United States. We love good food, music, easy laughs and meeting new people wherever we go.
