I love to explore, hike, and prefer being outdoors to being behind a TV set! I am so fortunate to live somewhere that allows me to be a tourist in my own city! I love to cook and eat out, and I spend a lot of my free time in the summer watching baseball, which is a huge passion of mine. I love to travel to not only see another city or landscape, but to meet the locals there. I prefer to do what they do, and avoid the touristy type stuff.
