HobbiesThe hobby that I am most passionate about is travelling and adventuring. I have spent the last year abroad and am moving to Amsterdam, again as a foreign student. I have learned more than I even hoped to in my time away from home; about various cultures, their differences, how people differ, and most importantly about myself. Even if my source of travel and adventure is within my own city and home, I will find it, whether that means exploring a new restaurant or trying out a new hobby with new people, I am always up for it!
Along with this is my love for learning new things. What makes me unique is my unquenchable curiosity for anything new - farming to accounting to journalism, you name it. This is why I always make it a goal to ask questions and learn as much as I can from new people and experiences.
Finally, I love being outdoors and being active. Biking, running, yoga, sports, hiking, swimming or anything in between, I love the rush of endorphins to my system and the smile it brings me.
