I grew up in Boston (no accent) and have always lived in cities (Philly, DC, Prague). I enjoy trying new restaurants, bars, going to museums, concerts, people watching and not having to drive. I don’t have a car (but have a license), and prefer it that way. Driving and parking in this city used to really stress me out. I am a big fan of bikeshare.
While I love urban living, I also like to get out of the city and do outdoorsy activities. Unfortunately, I don’t think I have explored the surrounding DC area enough (perhaps because I don’t have a car?) So, going on hikes, bike rides, ski trips, camping, winery tours etc. are all things I would like to make more a part of my DC life. As a New England gal, I love to be near the water -- the smell of salty ocean air, eating fresh seafood and going to the beach.
I like to stay active – for the mind and the body. I do a lot of yoga and like to run. I try to sign up for a few road races and at least one half marathon every year. I am signed up for the DC half marathon in March.
I have a bad case of wanderlust and am always looking to plan my next adventure. I’ve done most of my traveling in Europe (France, Germany, Italy, Czech Republic, Austria, Portugal etc.), but I have also traveled to Russia, Georgia, Ukraine, Cambodia, Vietnam, UAE, and Turkey. Most recently, I travelled to India (for work and play).
I really enjoy food, and will try pretty much anything once. But, I have been finding myself to be more and more of a vegetarian (+ seafood, + bacon, + a burger every now and then... so, not a very strict one.) I enjoy cooking, and am fairly good at it - I just don’t do it enough.
I am not really into following professional sports, but I am always up for going to a game (hockey, basketball, baseball). I wouldn't want watching sports (or a lot of tv) to be a huge part of relationship, though I do appreciate nights in watching Netflix.
