I am adventurous, open-minded, and quick to try new things. When I travel, I prefer to get off the beaten path as much as possible. I am a big believer in quickly adapting to local customs, being friendly to everyone you meet, and scratching beneath the surface to better understand each new culture you encounter. In my experience, the best travel experiences require effort and a willingness to venture into the unknown.
Five things I can't live without? Hmm. I would have to say a pair of running shoes, a good book, the mountains, my down jacket, and India Pale Ale.
As a guest, I am very low impact - quiet, clean, and do-it-yourself. If you happen to be around, I always enjoy meeting new people.
My favorite travel destinations to date are Argentina, Uruguay, Brazil, Botswana, South Africa, Netherlands, New Zealand, Peru, Bolivia and Vietnam.
