In my free time, I enjoy exploring the city, hiking, working out and reading. I plan on taking up cycling in the coming weeks as I decided not to bring my car with me to Seattle. UPDATE: I found a decent used bike yesterday. I should have it cleaned up and road worthy by this weekend!
I love to travel. I travelled as much as possible during my undergraduate through study abroad opportunities. As a result, I have been to Costa Rica, Panama, Italy, Germany, Czech Republic, Ireland, Uganda, England, El Salvador and the Philippines. I believe that persons from differing cultures can learn from one another. And, I love trying new foods. After I finish grad school, I hope to continue my travels!
If anyone likes to swing dance, I would love to learn. I took a beginner's class during my undergraduate and really enjoyed it.
Also, if you know Spanish or Italian, I'd love to learn it. Even though I took 4 years of Spanish in high school and spend four months in Florence Italy, my foreign language skills are in need of improvement.
