Some of my more recent adventures have included trips to South Africa -- Hippos! (which are my second favorite animal next to tapirs), and Iceland -- I can verify that it's cold there during winter; indoor climbing, which I just started last year (I try to go weekly); and cross country skiing (I'm planning on going on a hut-to-hut trip in Maine! :)). I also enjoy weekend backpacking, hiking and camping trips, cultural events, outdoor movies and music, and summer barbeques.
I walk the middle line between outgoing and introspective. I love a good conversation and am also happy to engage in a friendly debate. I have a wry sense of humor and it's a bonus if you can make me laugh.
Music - lots of things but my favorites generally tend to be folksy/singer-songwriter in nature. Lately I have been enjoying Josh Radin, Norah Jones, Josh Ritter, Frank Turner, and the Avett Brothers to name a few.
Books - I'm equally enamored with both fiction and non-fiction, although recently I've gotten in the bad habit of jumping from article to article on the internet rather than settling down with a book. I'm subscribed to several magazines including National Geographic and the Atlantic. I'm also a big fan of crossword puzzles, and Sudoku.
Movies - I'm not much of a movie buff (I do enjoy watching, just don't ask me to name any of the actors:)). My favorites? All of the original Indiana Jones movies, Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, Good Will Hunting and anything Pixar.
