I work to travel. I don't like to get in a hurry and prefer to stay longer in fewer places on a trip. If I could make a career out of traveling I would. I studied history at university and have been fascinated with geography & travel since I was a child. Spending so much time reading about other places makes you want to go see them for yourself.
Five things I can't live without: Salt, pepper, olive oil, garlic and a proper omelet pan. Most of my vacations revolve around food/cooking. My favorite place to visit in the United States is New Orleans because of the great food, music and outlook on life. As far as traveling outside the US, my favorite place so far is Italy.
I love auto racing, specifically Formula 1 & Le Mans. If I'm not traveling for food, I'm traveling for a race. Turned a trip to the 24 Hours of Le Mans into a 3 week vacation when I went in 2010.
Life motto: I can always make more money. I can't make more time.
