I love to explore a place, be there for awhile and really get to know it. I spent six months living, working, and exploring in SE Asia when I was 26, and have been smitten by this kind of travel ever since. In 2009 I rented a room in Queens and spent a month exploring Manhattan in New York. This year, I was drawn to Ireland. I booked a room in Belfast for three weeks, and had some extraordinary experiences there and in Dublin; getting to know people on a deeper level than I might have if I had just backpacked through in a day or two.
I currently live in Canada's North, in the Yukon Territory, and will soon be planning my next big adventure.
