I love to travel, but I don't enjoy looking or feeling like a tourist. I travel to learn something new, remind myself that the world is small, and that we are all the same. I go to ponder the question, "What can I leave other than my footprints on the ground?'
I am very opinionated, so I will usually find some way to contradict what you have to say. Don't take it personally, though.
I love cooking. I am quite orderly and usually clean whenever I find the time and means to do so. If I stay with you, I will probably wash your dishes for you after dinner... If you stay with me, I expect to be clean.
I am currently working on a novel.
My preferred method of exercise vacillates between the following: running, swimming, yoga, walking, martial arts.
I thrive on coffee and dark chocolate.
I am a firm believer of living without borders. I am more comfortable when I am outside my comfort zone than within it. Actually, I am not even sure anymore where the boundaries of my comfort zone lie. I am never satisfied, and I believe there is always something else to learn, to give, to believe in.
I am a perfectionist, therefore, I make mistakes.
Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.
