Why I travel
I travel to experience Earth's incredible diversity, to ditch my comfort zone, to make dear friends, to avoid stagnation, to challenge my pre-existing notions, to live authentically, and to grow.
Favorite European destination
France: diverse geography, excellent cuisine, wine, lingering over meals, the importance of family and friends, wine, fairytale cities and towns, a rich history, exceptional culture, and did I mention the wine?
