Hi. I love to travel, explore, and learn. I read travel books for fun and will spend months dreaming of the places I will experience, the food I will eat, the streets I will walk and the people I will meet along the way. My husband is usually my traveling companion. We most recently travelled to Myanmar and are now planning a trip to Uruguay.
I have to agree with Rick Steves that travel is a political act. And my politics are about understanding, tolerance and sharing. I believe that traveling makes me a better world citizen.
While I'm not traveling, I am an assistant professor in public affairs at an US university. I also volunteer quite a bit in my community -- for my neighborhood organization, a local foundation and for the city's historic preservation office.
