I’ve long since wanted to be a traveler, both of time and geography. In grade school I often spent hours on the 5 block walk home, traveling through both. In college, I discovered the road trip, my first one a straight drive in a friend’s tiny blue pick-up truck to NYC and Washington DC. (And where I relearned how to drive a stick in an empty Walmart parking lot.) In 2008 I ventured out on a 10-week solo drive in the winter and themed it “Talk to Strangers.”

Since then the furthest I’ve been is to Maui, Hawaii. I’m always planning something and look forward to a long life of travel, even if it’s simply to my backyard to fall asleep under the stars.
