I grew up in Palm Springs, went to college and worked in LA, and recently returned from living in Europe.
A friend recently asked me what 3 things I would bring with me to a deserted island (outside of food, water, and a boat). I'd want to have a subscription to the New York Times so I could continually learn new things about the world. I'd want a surfboard so I could always have a fun way to exercise and enjoy the ocean. And I'd want a guitar to make music. With those three, I would be able to sustain the mind, body, and soul until I made it off the island...
I'm looking for someone who also loves to explore the world - both at home and in different places. Who can laugh at life, find new challenges, and enjoy the big and little blessings around us. Some of my favorite memories span everything from random motels in the middle of nowhere to five-star resorts in Europe...it's more about who you're with than where you are.
Open-mindedness and sense of adventure are important - no snooki for this wookie :)
