I love to travel, as my screen name would suggest. I value the perspective only seeing the world can provide.
I'm pretty crafty and have a love of photography, which occupies the majority of my free time. I'm a big fan of documentaries and the only place to find me during Hot Docs, is in a theatre. I like learning new and old things, so time spent at the ROM, AGO, Science Centre or something of the like is not out of my ordinary.
I have a terrible habit of editing other people's writing (in my head...as I'm reading it). It serves as more of a distraction than anything else. Having said that, I'm a double spacer after a period. I've had a few conversations surrounding this but I stand by it!
I take serious issue with personal space, particularly with strangers on public transportation.
Manners are important to me. I say please and thank you, I chew with my mouth closed and hold the elevator door open for people (most of the time). I also think old people are the cutest and you can learn a lot, if you take the time to listen to them.
I'm not a pastry lover - the way to my heart is through sour candy ;)
I love to cook just as much as I love to eat, especially foods I've never tried before. I prefer red to green grapes, green to black olives, I love pickles (but not mini gherkins), and I'm a big advocate of breakfast for dinner. I love to cook with that someone - drinking some wine, laughing and likely burning things.
I really enjoy walking around the city and finding special places no one knows about, while taking photos that tell the stories I see. I've gotten back on my bike this summer, after a 6 year hiatus and have completely forgotten the freedom and joy it brings. I like to be challenged, not tested. I'm not the best with remembering song lyrics, but the first to point out when someone has them wrong. No one holds a candle to my useless knowledge - I rock a trivia night like it's going out of style :D
I like to go out and have a good time, but I just as equally love to cuddle with my partner, sharing stories, laughing and enjoying one another.
My most proud accomplishment? Not a single cavity - Ever. In. Life. Impressed yet?
I'm also a big sucker for facial hair - I fold like a sheet for some scruff :P
