I've been in the DFW metroplex for about 15 years. I'm always looking to try new things & find them even more enjoyable when shared with other open-minded folks.
I did a lot of traveling in Europe during college which was great. These days I go to the NC beach once a year for family time & try to do one other trip to some other American city I'm unfamiliar with. I'm not much for repeat journeys at this stage but I definitely want to spend some more time in NY & I'd like to revisit the NM mountains.
I love going to speaker events, writer readings & the like. The opportunity to learn something will get me to try a lot of things (as long as it doesn't involve bodily harm).
I'm an army brat so I grew up in a lot of different places. Military bases are often their own kind of towns though. My favorite thing about growing up on base was that diversity & unity of the community. People came from all kinds of backgrounds & had lived all over the world but we had the shared experience of being a military family.
Someone in one of my other meetups mentioned this group, so I checked it out.
Aloha peoples! I'm Elise, looking forward to some interesting outings with y'all.
