When my mother asked me what I wanted for my birthday, I said, "Well, you know me... it's all about beer, books, and travel." To set the record straight, I'm not a big drinker-- but I brew beer and cider because I'm a science and gastronomy nut. I'm an avid reader, and I go a little stir-crazy when I go too long without traveling.
I try to make it off the continent once every 3 months and over the Atlantic once every six, but only time will tell how that pans out. More often than not, I'm traveling with my partner (in crime, in life, etc.), and we're both the kind of people who want to really get a feel for a place; whirlwind tour travel has never been my style.
