I am a data analyst from Baltimore. Because I sit in front of a computer all day, I really like to get out of the house and travel. I prefer beauty over comfort, so will happily camp in the rain if it means waking up to a beautiful day in the mountains. I also prefer traveling with a purpose (one of my favorite trips was two weeks working in a Finnish hostel shaving trees and digging up peat moss). Finally, one of my favorite aspects of traving is seeking out the local food and drink, the more authentic (and inexpensive) the better.
