I very much enjoy traveling to see new places and meet new people. To me the destination is more than seeing a museum or historical sight, it's about the food, the drink, the atmosphere, and how people enjoy themselves in their normal lives. This is one of the reasons why AirBnB appeals to me.
I'm a bit of a live music junkie and go out to see bands over 100 times a year. I prefer improvisational music such as jazz or certain types of rock, but also enjoy blues, singer/songwriter, and the occasional string quartet.
I've been to Canada, Mexico, Costa Rica, Japan, England, Scotland, Ireland, Sweden, Denmark, Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Czech Republic, Austria, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, France, Spain, Morocco, Portugal, and Italy. I have definite plans to visit Chile, Uruguay, Argentina, Turkey, Thailand, and China. And a very long list of places yet to go (or to return too, which I also enjoy!).
I wish that I spoke another language fluently. I studied Spanish for two years in high school, and German for two years in college, but never really got to use and practice them after that. I have some survival skills in a few languages, but often make do with a smile and a gesture.
