The measure of life is experiences and relationships, not things. I try to organize my daily existence around that philosophy. Good friends foster good experiences, and vice versa. I think that's mainly what I'm looking for on here: new friends with whom to connect through shared adventure. Life's pretty ridiculous. It's nice to be surrounded by people who get that.
I have a ton of Word documents open planning future trips. They run the gamut from Paris to Troy, New York. Obviously, the Paris one is bigger. But, hey, even Troy has something to offer, I figure. So I owe it to myself to meet its people, try its food, figure out what it values.
