I like to travel, and have taken six trips to Europe, three with my bicycle. On two, I pedaled for a total of about a thousand miles. Bicycle touring is a wonderful way to explore the small towns and byways, and really get a feel for a country. I've also visited the Galapagos and New Zealand.
So, you say "it's nice to know what you like to do, but who are you? What makes you tick?"
I like to think of myself as reliable, honest, and open. I'm a steady, stalwart supporter of family, friends, and organizations. At work, I do the things that need to be done, and don't consider myself a prima donna. Engaging with others and working towards a shared goal is what lights me up.
I'm much more of a night owl than a morning person. That said, I tend to start waking up when it gets light out, so the early summer mornings here in the Pacific Northwest cause me to run short of sleep.
I'm a bit of a softie, tearing up a little at some movies or when reading touching novels. I really care about my family and friends, and how they're doing.
