I am a 27 year old high school history teacher from the greater Washington, DC metro area. I love traveling and exploring new places, with friends and family or on my own, and while I love seeing world renowned sites and famous landmarks, my favorite thing to do in any city is simply to wander. I try to make sure to get off the beaten tourist track into neighborhoods, and I always make sure to pop in a grocery store every place I travel. My favorite places I've traveled are London, Berlin, Amsterdam, and Rome. I consider myself a fairly mellow, but organized person, and I can be very quiet around people I don't know. When it comes to places to stay when traveling, I value cleanliness and quiet as I recharge my batteries for the next day's adventure. I love television, sarcastic humor, desserts, tea, bright colors, and cultural history.
