I'm a 29-year-old designer living in San Francisco. My background is in graphic design, but lucky for me, my job allows me to work in all kinds of different fields, and travel occasionally. I've been fortunate to work out of Shanghai, Hong Kong, London, and Rio de Janeiro, just to name a few.
For me, the greatest thing about traveling (aside from it being paid for by my employer, occasionally), is to get immersed in cultural experiences. I'd much rather spend a few days with a local guide, who can show me the small customs that make each place unique, than take pictures of famous landmarks and tourist traps.
I'm also an adjunct professor at an art school in SF. Right now I'm teaching graduate students about typography.
