  • Favourite places:

    Home (Kodiak Island & Alaska), Hawai'i (Kauai), Pacific Northwest (Bellingham, Seattle, Portland and points in between), Ireland (especially the North - Belfast, Derry & Donegal), Manhattan, Germany (Dresden & Berlin)...and anywhere that involves a road trip or a trail/backpack (as long as it's not too damn cold!)

    I like temperate climates...drizzle and mist, green and lush landscapes, and sunshine - need more of that.
