I travel because:
The postcards look pretty.

Perfect meal:
sushi and dumplings, but not all together

Never travel without:
Wet wipes. They are the best invention ever and SO not a priss thing to have handy. :)

Last thing I broke:
I knocked over a display case in a gelato store in Italy :(

The thing I always forget:
My passport. I've had to head home from the airport more than once for that. Doh!

Travel inconveniences I could do without:
Sleeping in airports. OMG I hate missed flights.

When not traveling I'm:
Dreaming about food. Or eating. Or fiddling on this site :p

I used to spend all my free time thinking about travel. That and food. Since travel abroad usually entails good food, those two things went together pretty well for me. So one day, I decided, what the heck, let's do this. Turned in my resignation at my old job, hopped on a plane, flew across the continent from Montreal to Mountain View, then learned step by step the hard way what we needed to do to build this web site. :) Oh, and of course getting hungrier by the minute. :) Thank you guys for coming by, and looking forward to building this community together! :)
