I grew up in Alaska. Which I'm grateful for because it immediately gives people something to talk to me about and makes me seem more interesting than I really am (which is great because really I'm kind of shy). Also, AK is the best place ever and I am blessed to have lived there for 24 years.
Obviously, I love traveling. I'm more of a culture/history/nature/shoelace traveler. (compared to a food, party, urban, shopping, ritzy, beer, sports, 'check it off my list', tourist traveler (that's only a short list of travel types I'm sure)) I like traveling with people but no travel buddy is better than a bad travel buddy.
