I try my best to live by the philosophy that the only risks you ever regret are the ones you choose not to take. My often boundless idealism can sometimes get me into trouble as reality comes crashing down upon me.
I truly enjoy experiencing wildness, both literally and metaphorically. I've lived a lot of places, and find that I'm happiest when I'm not confined by civilization too much. Although, I must admit that there is great comfort in having a movie theater and some ethnic restaurants within a reasonable evening driving distance.
The world is a huge and fascinating place, and I have an intense need to explore as much of it as possible. But not just to see. I must experience the stories each place has to share, and relish feeling of discovery and newness. It's sometimes difficult for me to balance my need for planning ahead to ensure that I don't miss anything (I have a chronic case of FOMO...Fear of Missing Out) with a heartfelt desire to be spontaneous and just let adventure find me, but I feel I'm getting better at achieving it. I'm looking for a partner that shares my love of new experiences and is willing to rough it when we need to but recognizes that sometimes you just have to spring for the room with a view.
