I have learned a little bit of salsa at the moment and am surprised by how technical it is (it takes way more skill to do than the Whip in my opinion). I had never taken dancing lessons before and feel that a understanding (by that I mean patient) partner can really help me learn. I learned quite a bit but taking lessons in a big room with 100 people was not easy.
I want to learn some new things from other people; I want to hear some stories that would make me roll on the floor laughing or gasp in complete shock. I want to learn/do new things that will better myself.
There's is definitely no better way to learn about others and yourself than through a grueling, 10-day trip where sleep is rarely provided and you are randomly roaming the streets of Rome at 3 in the morning after a night of hot European style clubbing.
Movies: Shawshank Redemption, Lars and the Real Girl. Watching more movies is a goal of mine.
Music: Wide ranging from Bob Segar, John Mellencamp, AC/DC, Aerosmith to showtunes
Food: Red meat, potatoes, chicken, anything that is really bad for you (traveling has expanded my palette and I am willing to try more)
