Due to my job as a music teacher, my travel experiences are limited to what I can afford, what fits in over summer or holiday breaks, and any traveling I may do professionally or with student groups. I look for fun, convenience, and quality over extravagance and luxury. I can enjoy a small "mom and pop" motel as much as a 5-star resort depending on the type of travel I'm doing. In restaurants, I'm looking for freshness, creativity and value. A good steak simply prepared beats fancy and overpriced in my opinion. I hope to engage in conversation with other travelers here about my experiences and about my hometown of Pittsburgh.
