Books you might find in my backpack
Music you might find me listening to while waiting for my plane
Most Memorable Travel Experience
-Ireland. Enough said.
-Scotland. Everything about it is fabulous! But specifically? The crazy, drunk old man bleeding profusely from the head, yet oblivious to it as he was so wrapped up in his dancing to the bagpipe/drum band playing in the street.

-Vatican City- Being THIS CLOSE to puking in the Sistine Chapel. Don't go there when hungover.

-Bicycling through the countryside in The Netherlands (around Edam).

-Elevator adventures in Lucerne. My friend and I could not get it to work properly, and would end up on the floor we started on, over and over again!

-Paragliding in Hopfgarten, Austria

-Being chased by the gypsies who were trying to sell their products in Pisa, Italy.

-2010 Olympics in Vancouver, BC.

-Walking from Ontario to can ask me about it.

-Getting lost while snorkeling in the Dominican Republic. We ended up in the middle of the ocean...literally.

-Disneyland!! It really is the happiest place on Earth!

-Swimming with dolphins in Mexico...a lifelong dream come true!

-Cuba. All of it!!

-San Francisco...FOOD HEAVEN!!!!

-Costa Rica - ziplining, and then accidentally stepping on a snake. I didn't even see it!

-I'm Canadian.
-I have dual citizenship. I'm also Australian, although I've never been there.
-I'm an elementary school teacher.
-I love reading and art, among other things.
-I'm crazy about music. I'd actually say I'm a music snob.
-I love vampire stories. So much so that I want to be a vampire.
-My favourite colour is green.
-I love laughing.
-I really like vodka and fruity alcoholic drinks.
-I don't bite my fingernails.
-I have too many pairs of shoes.
-I collect watches.
-I don't smoke.
-I'm a kick-ass Monopoly player.
-I can't think of anything else to say. If you have questions, just ask!
