I struggle with answering questions like "Where are you from" (San Francisco Bay Area? Germany?) and "Where do you live?" (in a typical year, 2 months in China, 6 months in California, 2 months in Panama, 2 months traveling elsewhere).
When I travel, I like to step off the beaten trail in rather extreme ways, and often literally... I whitewater kayak, backpack, sea kayak, and really want to go on a bike trip in western china.
Friends tell me I have a great, though sometimes a bit too sarcastic sense of humor and I noticed I love being silly at times and serious at others.
I'm anti-consumerism (don't own a TV and hate shopping), but I value the freedom and security that comes from having income or savings.
Here is something really strange about me: I don't get jealous. Ever. Envious, sometimes, but not jealous.
