I'm a geek. I love books. I play video games and board games. I even play tabletop rpgs. I also like hiking, camping and generally being outdoors especially in the summertime.
I think making things yourself from scratch is more fulfilling than purchasing them. I love to cook and invent my own recipes. I can fruits and veggies and even brew my own beer. I also knit and am picking up sewing.
I love to travel, but haven't had as many opportunities as I'd like lately. In high school I lived with a family in Tokyo for a month. In college I spent a semester in Beijing and traveled all over the country. I even got to stay with remote villages, that was the best part.
I'm teaching myself photography. You can see my pictures here: http://500px.com/petersarster
