I love to travel and see the world, but also enjoy experiencing local things too. I hit a milestone travel goal during Summer of 2010 in that I was finally able to do a backpacking trip through Europe! I went to Ireland, Spain, France, Germany, The Netherlands and the UK. It was a lot of fun and I look forward to the day where I can do it again. On another trip in summer 2010 to Cabo, I went scuba diving for the first time and it would be fun to get SCUBA certified someday. Camping and general road trips are always fun. I have been to what I consider the two most party hardy cities in the world: Las Vegas and Amsterdam, yet I can enjoy trekking through the woods or a quiet night home reading a book. I love having fun nights out. This could be anything from a nice walk on ship canal to a drink in Belltown and to the ever-fascinating people watching experience in my neighborhood of Capitol Hill. I enjoy music, mostly rock and alternative, but I can be game for most anything.
Recently, I've gotten into being very physically active and am planning to stay that way. I spent much of the winter skiing on the weekends and I did my first Seattle to Portland bike ride this year, doing so in one day. I also visit the gym a few time a week and am planning for more outside stuff once the weather turns nicer. It would be really cool if I can meet someone with the same interest in being physically active as me.
