Reading, Hiking, Biking .... these are a few of my favorite things. I enjoy all kind of ethnic foods but confess to never tasting haggis or lutefisk.
I live in the Pacific Northwest section of the U.S. with Mikki, who luckily enjoys many of the same pursuits. We enjoy vegetables - both eating them and being them on occasion.
The key to traveling is to stay in one place long enough to get to know the people and local culture. It's great to be able to sleep in a cool room with a comfortable bed and have a hot cup of coffee in the morning. After that, all seems right with the world.
