I also really love to travel and and want my partner to share in the excitement of planning a trip (from booking the tickets to getting travel guides - it's an exciting process). I'm not into long days at the beach unless there's a bbq involved. I've traveled a lot throughout South America, but am dying to see Southeast Asia and more of Africa. I also want to see more of the U.S., especially the Southwest (love New Mexico's state question - 'red or green'). Chaco Canyon is one of my favorite places....it's magical. I think a cross-country road trip would be a great way to spend a week or two.
I want a dog when I see them at the park, but think dog ownership is easier with a second person. I also love cats, even though I'm allergic (embarrassing fact - I talk to my neighbor's cat when I see it in the window).
Random fact - I'm a classically trained violinist and played hardcore from the age of 4. Now I play in a no-stress community orchestra and really enjoy it. And despite loving classical music, I also really like classic rock, 80s hair bands (Def Leppard!) and Motown.
I'm looking for a thoughtful guy that wants to take time getting to know each other. Also someone that understands I'm an introvert at heart, and sometimes need time to decompress.
