Interests: daydreaming, roadtripping, reading, expository writing, hiking, foreign languages (currently studying Serbian, can speak French & Spanish kinda sorta fluently), East Germany & Ostalgie, Silesia, beer, ice wine, 80's pop culture, Canada, hot springs, European history, nature (gotta love babbling brooks & fir-scented air), talkative people as I'm more of a listener than a talker. Big news junkie here: NPR, BBC, CBC Radio One, Radio Nederlands, Deutsche Welle
Things I don't care for: King George II, California, materialism, traffic, compulsive liars, and flakes
A simple, yet complex dork who should have been born 60 years ago.
