I am always looking forward to the future and finding the good and fun parts of life. I become passionately involved in my big interests. I like sun more than snow. I prefer character to cute. I'm pragmatic but spontaneous. Nurturing, but competitive. Peaceful, but energetic. I definitely have an adventurous streak -- whether it's trying out an exotic recipe in the kitchen, joining a boxing gym, or traveling the world with friends. My dream trip is taking the Orient Express from Paris to Venice to Budapest, and then relaxing on a Greek island with a good book and a cold BEvERage. I'm privileged to have a lot of diverse friends from all walks of life. I'm fortunate to have them in my life, including a legion of close friends from high school and college. I am looking for someone who values and wants to share travel, friends and family.
