I am a PhD candidate in neuroscience, hoping to finish my training by 2014. I love to travel, read, and bake. I don't travel with a pet (I just have a cat at home), but I love animals. I typically travel with my boyfriend, a professional poker player, who also loves reading, travel, writing (check out his blog at grindrewind), and is an excellent cook. We both enjoy meeting new people during our travels, but also like to spend time exploring on our own.
