I love to travel, thus far in 2014 my trips have been limited to a few ski trips in Italy and France, and a long weekend in Nice. Looking forward I'll be flying to Prague for a weekend, wandering around Italy a bit, and then flying to Istanbul and Israel. This summer is back to the States and November is back to Israel for a friends wedding. Who knows what else the year will have in store!? While I'd love to move back to Paris, or to move to Brussels or Tel Aviv, it looks like my next stop once I find my way back to the States will likely be Washington DC or Maryland. I enjoy skiing, traveling and being active - although my dancing is a bit of a work in progress. My latest hobby is photography. I find I tend to have more interest and a greater appreciation of women who have done their studies in fields that are not traditionally considered "women's areas" of study - such as engineering, architecture and hard sciences - or anything having to do with animals, more than the 'traditional' women's fields (nursing being an exception). Must love animals, particularly dogs.
