I love traveling and get to do so quite frequently for work. Many dramatic tales, such as epic deathmarches across Cairo and tense standoffs with Irish goats, have ensued. Incidentally, I have a completely rational and highly justified dislike of goats (see, for instance, this recent story: http://metro.co.uk/2013/08/31/police-thwarted-by-goat-stuck-on-roof-in-gresham-oregon-3944570/ ). Seriously, goats are the worst.
Also, I consider Paris my second home, having had opportunities to live there on several occasions. Despite this (or perhaps because of it), I am not a Francophile.
