I have a french bulldog named Bones. He can be a bit of a rascal, but he makes me laugh and is fun to have around.
I love to travel and studied abroad in France during my undergrad. While there, I was able to visit Ireland, Scottland (and visit the small village that game my family its surname), Portugal, Italy, The Netherlands, and Spain. Since then, I have also gotten to travel to Greece and saw one of Bob Marley's sons perform in a +2000 year old auditorium overlooking the Mediterranean.
I have learned that no matter where you go, people are generally the same... the geography just changes a little.
I try to travel as often as possible... I spent this last winter in Israel.
