Tell us about your favorite outdoor adventure?

I haven't had enough outdoor adventures to say I have a favorite. Since 2009 I've been trying new physical activities such as Philly Tri (definitely too much), Bike Philly, Broad Street Run, Philly Marathon (1/2), City to Shore. I went rafting for the first time last fall. I injured by hip in April so my activities were curtailed this spring/summer but I'm getting back into action.

What countries or other states have you visited? Where is your favorite place located? And tell us why?

I love traveling abroad! There's something special about every place I've visited...Singapore, Columbia, Zanzibar, Tanzania, Rowanda, Tunisia, Italy, Spain, Netherlands, Belgium, France, Hungary, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Poland, Mexico, Barbados, Aruba, Curacao, Jamaica, Dominican Republic, St. Thomas, Brazil, Portugal, Bermuda, Bahamas. In terms of the US, I think I've been to about 28 states for either business, pleasure or both. Again, I try to learn about the city I'm in and try to find a "take away" experience while I'm there. For example, for my son's birthday earlier this year we met in Las Vegas for a weekend. Neither one of us had ever been there and we took a helicopter ride to the Grand Canyon. The copter landed on the floor of the canyon and we were able to walk around, then have a picnic lunch before heading back to the city. It was very cool!

What destinations and/or types of trips do you want to do with this group?

I'm open to any destinations. I tend not to do repeat destinations because there's so much to see in this world but that doesn't mean I won't :-)

Introduction

I like new experiences that help me to stay physically fit and/or offer a new challenge. I enjoy being outdoors, meeting new people, and exploring new places.
