I am a Canadian currently living in New York. I'm studying English Literature at Rutgers University in New Jersey and trying to soak up as much goodness as I can in the tri-state area without burning out. I am a writer (I recently put out my first book!) and an academic. I love to travel when I have the time and the money, but now that i'm older, I'm over hosteling. I prefer enjoying and exploring new cities to getting drunk in bars -- although one thing I love about cities is the nightlife. I'm a quiet, responsible guest who doesn't need a lot of space. Even though I like to be comfortable, I am *not* a high maintenance traveler. However I end up spending my time, I like to always be learning something new. To me, that's the best thing to do in life!
