Travel is a huge passion of mine - I love getting the opportunity to put myself out my comfort zone and experience new locales, cultures, and food. In fact, I've made it a lifetime goal to explore one new country every year. So far it's been going amazingly and have been able to "check off" Iceland, South Korea, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Japan, Singapore, and Denmark. I also run marathons (for FUN!) and would one day like to run a marathon on every continent - including Antarctica (yes, there are marathon races there!).
I've spent a fair share of my travel adventures roughing it, doing the hostel and couch thing, but as I've grown up (and started receiving grown-up pay), I've found my need for a really nice bed rise to the top of my priorities list. I'm starting see the need for vacations that are slower paced and leisurely, and appreciate places that let me unwind and relax.
