My name is Tara and I'm from VT in the U.S. I'm 29. I just finished a graduate program in peace and conflict resolution in Washington, DC. I'm traveling this summer with my brother-in-law, David, who lives in London. I like to take walks around new cities, spend time outdoors, go running, cook, read and write fiction, and get to know new people. My favorite book ready recently is The Museum of Innocence by Orhan Pamuk. I've spent most of my travel time in China but was born in Florence and am very excited to explore Europe this summer.
