I moved to a small town a few years ago and then realized that while parts of it are good, there are some definite drawbacks.
I enjoy the open space and being on the water, but the lack of culture and night life has me heading to A2 quite often.
I love to travel and have been to both Europe and the Middle East and would love to go back. Italy is my dream vacation.
I am very active and during the summer I am often hiking, biking or on or in the water. This past summer (2012) I spent a lot of time on the lake, kayaking and jet skiing. I also went to Traverse City, Chicago, and went on two biking trips, one to Boyne and the other to the Cuyahoga Valley. I also fit in a concert and some art fairs. While I don't necessarily consider myself an intellectual I do keep up on current events - mainly by watching Colbert and Jon Stewart - ;) and read voraciously. I occasionally play trivia which is good for the brain as I find out how much I do not know.
