I am a professional single mom in my mid-30s with a wonderful almost-four-year-old son. I work part time as a historical researcher specializing in Aboriginal rights and land claims, and part time in a clinic as a Registered Massage Therapist. I guess my "life motto" is probably "don't knock it till you've tried it" (a bit toned-down from my 20s life motto of "I'll try anything once" - that's what having a kid does to you, I guess). But I'm not really a wild person, I just like meeting people, eating good food, reading interesting books, learning about stuff, listening to music I've never heard before, etc. etc. What I've always strived to achieve while travelling is experiencing life like a local (easier said than done sometimes).
