I am a 30-something librarian and former public radio producer. I live with my boyfriend, two cats, and a Scottie mix--usually I travel with just the boyfriend (sometimes the dog, never the cats!). We're pretty laid-back travelers and when we're not visiting family we like to take it slow and explore our new surroundings. We're always on the lookout for local coffee roasteries and craft breweries (if you're ever in Chicago, you'll have to pick up some Metropolis beans and Half Acre brew!). Whenever we can avoid driving, we prefer to walk, bike, or take public transportation on our ventures.
