I love to travel and am currently on an adventure through Central and South America for a year. I am an ever-smiling optimist who loves to meet new people. I drink a lot of coffee and love to cook. I enjoy being outdoors, especially if I am near the water or hiking in the mountains. I have a work background in relationships education with young people, but I think my next venture will be into the wonderful world of permaculture and sustainability. I enjoy learning about food and lifestyle practices that contribute to great health and wellbeing. I am currently trying to learn Spanish as I travel, which is fun and challenging! I like to relax and am not a huge party person, but I do enjoy going out dancing every now and then! I am currently watching Season 2 of Breaking Bad and thoroughly enjoying it, and making my way through a book on how to be a great travel writer (something I would love to eventually fund my travels with!).
