I'm an enthusiastic traveler, and love the opportunity to experience new places, engage with people of different cultures, and share in the beauty and lifestyle of many lands. I especially love the outdoors, and can often be found walking the pathways of the locals, living life "in ever increasing circles." Over the years, I have visited five continents, numerous countries, and 49 of the United States, finding in each one reasons to return. Aotearoa, the Land of the Long White Cloud, is especially dear to my heart, and I return year after year, always finding something new and beautiful there. I travel alone and with friends, but am always on the lookout for the quirky and unusual, as well as the more mainstream delights each place has to offer.
