I'm firmly convinced that there are two really wonderful things in life: one is having amazing experiences, and the other is getting to regale your friends and family with those stories after the fact (for the ones who weren't there with you).
Some of the stories you can expect to hear include (in no particular order): the time I slept on a hammock in the pouring rain at the Ritz in Barcelona, where I wasn't a guest; the time I wagered on where chickens would relieve themselves at a bar in Belize; the time I lived in an Italian villa during grad school; the time I went cavern diving in Mexico; and the time I got a 20 dollar tip for a Capitol tour.
I know, I know: I sound like one of those insufferable assholes who spends every waking moment talking about "that ah-may-zing time I was in Honduras and a group of medical missionaries I met scuba diving adopted me." Wait, where was I going with that story?
Seriously though, there's more to me than just passport stamps. When I'm not traveling or forgetting why I was relating an anecdote to you (a trait inherited from my Dad), you'll find me listening to TED talks, taking long runs, dropping in on the occasional yoga class, seeking out delicious and rare microbrews, buying the cheap seats at Nationals Stadium and never actually sitting in them, spending time with a wonderful group of friends, making breakfast, mainlining coffee, hitting the golf links, and wishing that I could drive to scuba diving that's not in a rock quarry or five hours away.
I eventually want to find my partner; the woman who will figure prominently in my best stories while continuing to have amazing ones of her own. She's wickedly smart, passionate and driven, successful in her field (or on her way to being so), and reminds me that being silly sometimes isn't such a bad thing. That being said, I'm quite open to meeting new people and letting things develop naturally. You can't jump to the end of the story, after all.
It's worth noting that I'm disgustingly sincere. If that's your thing, we'll get along famously.
