Originally a Southern California native, I now live in Portland, OR. I am a high school English teacher and Speech and Debate coach in a rural school district outside of the city. I am literary and love a good cup of coffee in the sun with a book, but I also love being outside: hiking, camping, running, exploring. I'm all about food, and it is one of the main reasons I love to travel - experiencing regional [vegetarian/pescetarian] cuisine and sampling local libations. I've done a fair bit of traveling, and I've learned that the best trips are the ones that are relaxed. I like to take in the experience without trying to "do it all." If I don't get it all in in one whirlwind go, that's okay - I'll come back!
