I was born in Daytona Beach, Florida, and raised in Orlando. Between my junior and senior year of college, I took a year break to live in Germany. It was one of the best years of my life.
I love to travel, especially to national parks; I have visited Yellowstone many times.
One of my favorite vacations was a kayak trip in the Florida Keys. The water was crystal clear. Our guide showed us remote locations, and islands full of roosting pelicans and heron. There was no one but us, the fish and the birds.
When I visit a city for the first time, I like the spend the first week doing nothing more than walking. I eventually go to museums, and do the touristy things, but I won't feel like I've really been somewhere unless I've spent time walking the streets, looking in store windows, browsing through shops, getting lost, and finding my way back again.
