One Amazing Thing I've Done

Some of the most beautiful things I've seen have been the Galapagos Islands off the coast of Ecuador and the old-growth rain forest in Portland, Oregon, and the monasteries/geography of Meteora, Greece.

One of the most amazing things I've done is a nighttime snowshoeing adventure up Mt. Hood in Oregon. We set out at around midnight and snowshoed up steep inclines under the full moon and had hot chocolate at the summit.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm learning classical Greek and Latin right now, I'm trying fit in time to learn German and I know Spanish pretty well, I'm also taking an introductory class to modern-standard Arabic.I would love to learn photography skills and how to cook the cuisine of whichever country I'm in.
