Travel is something that is constantly on my mind and you will often find me reading, doing online research or simply daydreaming about somewhere that I'd like to visit. Over the years I've traveled in a variety of ways and to places throughout the United States of America (to paraphrase Boots Riley: "I was born here but I'm a foriegner") as well as fairly short jaunts north into Canada (SW BC) and south into Mexico (mostly Sonora). These days the time, money and my general ablity to fit travel into my life tends to be quite limited so I'm putting more thought into why I travel and what makes the experience the most rewarding for me.
One conclusion that I've reached is that my travel experience is greatly enhanced by connecting with friendly local folks who are passionate about where they live and want to share it with travelers like me.
This, my dear reader, is where I hope that you will come in to the picture!
I would love to hear from any of you who think that where you are is a wonderful place to be and are up to show me around if I ever make it there! Or maybe you do not like where you are so much but you'd still love to have another vegan stop by for a visit? If either of those descriptions apply to you, or even perhaps if they do not, please write up as short or long of a post as you'd like and tell me why you think I would be missing it out if my path did not cross with yours one day!
ps. I have purposely omitted any reference to what I tend to look for in the places I travel to in the hopes that as many people as possible will respond to this. While I certainly have my preferences, I also remain open to new and different experiences and possibilities than those I would most likely choose on my own!
