I'm a graphic and web designer by trade. That means I spend most of my time planning my next escape to the outdoors. I will have the occasional gel out session watching a movie or something, but after a day spent in front of a computer agonizing over pixels I'd much rather be cruising downtown on my bike.
I'm and avid camper, I fell in love with it during a spur of the moment two month backpacking kayaking trip in Chile and Argentina. This is such an excellent state to camp and be outside in I feel bad If I don't take advantage of it every few months. I'm currently planning a surfing / camping trip later this summer.
My new thing is DIY projects. This is a recent love affair. I've found a great deal of happiness in making and completing weekly / monthly projects. My current big project is a box garden in my backyard.
