Where I'm going next: The only bit of Toronto I've ever experienced is Pearson Int'l airport. Without fail there's always a storm brewing over the lake and the ominous storm clouds throw electric daggers at my little plane. And I always, ALWAYS miss my connecting flight.

Nevertheless, I'm coming to visit for a week to find out why everyone loves Toronto so much and to see if maybe this West Coast chick should give that side of Canada a try.

Places I've been: S. Korea, Western Europe, United Kingdom, United Arab Emirates, Mexico and parts of the US.
If money and time were no obstacle you'd find me in India trying to make sense of the railway system and observing how to cross the busy streets where stop lights are only suggestions and it's between you, the rickshaws, the sacred cows and motorcycles carrying entire families.

I believe that we can only progress in peace by experiencing and learning about other cultures. My backpacking days are done. Long gone are the hectic, panicked mornings scrambling to get to the train station, while frantically reassuring myself I did remember to take my passport out of the lockbox. These days I much prefer a suitcase under a bed, in a place I can stay awhile, to really sink my feet into the sand.

I love world music, collecting magazines, learning new languages.

And wine. I'll never say no to wine.
