b. 1964, I'm a sociology professor, American emigrant, Canadian citizen. Partnered since 1995- he's why I emigrated to Canada from the US, in 1997. We travel fairly extensively, alone and separately. For me, travel is about reveling in the ordinary lives of cities. I walk when I can, but am also an inveterate rail geek (and that means everything from streetcars to LRT to subways to intercity trains). I also travel to EAT! My greatest passions are probably food and coffee, not necessarily in that order.
