I grew up moving and traveling around the United States.  My parents taught me to love the outdoors--going camping and hiking frequently.  Some of my best memories are of our yearly camping trips to Yosemite and the Santa Cruz Mountains.   

I caught the serious travel bug after going on a culinary tour of Tuscany and Paris while in culinary school.  The small Tuscan towns, vineyards and barrels of balsamic vinegar, Parmesan cheese factories, and rooms full of aging Prosciutto... oh, life was good!  From that trip on I couldn't get enough and the addiction began...   

I love the sense of adventure that travel brings and I wouldn't be able to live without it.  I love photography--preserving that perfect moment of exploration and discovery on film (or memory card...).  I love food--tasting new flavors and ingredients.

My main travel goals include circling Iceland by car, watching the sunrise from the top of Mt. Fuji, swimming the jelly lakes of Palau, trekking Machu Picchu, sailing in Halong Bay, hiking though Cambodia, and eating my way though Spain... the list continues to grow.  I'm also extremely interested in volunteering abroad, if anyone knows of any good companies or ideas.  Currently I'm trying to save up for an Antarctic Icebreaker cruise (via Buenos Aires, Iguasu Falls, and Tierra Del Fuego) before it all melts.  Anyone have any great travel fund raising ideas?  My student loans are crushing my dreams.
