I was born in Albuquerque and my family eventually moved to the D.C. suburbs in Virginia, then to Winston-Salem North Carolina and finally St. Louis, MO, where I spent most of my time as a kid.
After graduating college, I lived in a tiny town in Indiana and then moved to Wichita.
I've never travelled abroad, although I'm trying to plan a backpacking trip or perhaps some volunteer work upon graduation. I'd love to visit northern Europe, Asia and South and Central America.
I have enjoyed vacations to Los Angeles and NYC (I have a brother living in each), many places in TX (San Antonio is my favorite), beach towns in North Carolina, beach towns on the gulf side of Florida, summers in rural Utah with my grandparents, Memphis, Omaha, and Kansas City. Me and my girlfriend are now saving up for a trip to New Orleans in the spring.
I don't want to live in Wichita after I graduate from grad school. It's just too small for my liking. But the job opportunities might keep me here for a bit longer.
I think travel expands your mind. There's a really big world out there and we're just a tiny, inconsequential part of it.
