I'm fortunate enough to have many friends in far off geographies - primarily Europe, Hong Kong and NYC. I try to fully capitalize on their cities when I visit. A lot of fun to be had regardless of what you're typically looking for.
But beyond the typical physical attributes, Ive been told rather consistently that my listening skills (and subsequent advice) are "unparalleled". So no promises, but I've heard it quite a bit.
Poetry - specifically Robert Service, Edward Paramore, Alfred Noyes and Robert Frost.
Music - All over the map, but some of my favorite stuff is very old blues (Robert Johnson, Peetie Wheatstraw, Sonnyboy Williamson, Otis Spann). Then some more mainstream artists - Daft Punk, MGMT, GNR, The Black Keys.
Family and Friends
my work in Asia and NYC
the sustainability of international economic growth.
the possibility of rigging a side trip to see my family with my latest work travel.
