I can't imagine what it would be like if I couldn't travel. I grew up in St. Louis and currently live in Kansas City so I take just about every opportunity I can to be near a large body of water. I work in the field of market research and travel quite a bit so I often tack on a personal trip to business travel to take full advantage of the opportunity. I spent a semester in Rome (not nearly long enough), which instilled this idea that I could go anywhere in the world. I have no problem going to a city alone and meeting new people either from AirBnB or (website hidden). I love the experience of traveling and meeting new people which is also why I love music festivals so much and hope to go to Burning Man this year... When I travel, I walk...everywhere. I feel like it's the best way to take in the city (and get good exercise). Life motto? Don't just "live a little"...live a lot.
