I am a calm and generally quiet person. I enjoy traveling as much as I enjoy a night in at my house in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I enjoy cooking and eating food of all kinds. I like to swim and to take walks in cities and in nature.
Five things I couldn't live without:
A book or a computer
My style of travel is to find a nice place to stay, favoring hostels, couch surfing and b&bs, and make day trips to points of interest from there. I like to find a good grocery store or market and fill a pack with non-perishable food and then look for good local places to eat. I try to clean up after myself everywhere I go.
I practice stoicism on a daily basis. I try not to blame others for things that I can deal or cope with myself. I find happiness is something that comes easily if you look for it.
