1) What famous landmarks have you visited?
I have been to several; my family likes to do historical stuff for vacations. Lots of learning, fewer crowds. I've been to Washington DC twice, the Grand Canyon twice, the Petrified Forest, Death Valley, Big Bend, Yellowstone, Bighorn Canyon, Gettysburg, Colonial Williamsburg . . . three or four times? Cape Cod: Plymouth Rock, Providencetown, National Seashore, Highland Light. There's got to be more.

2) How has travel affected you?
I find the actual traveling to be stressful, but I like being there and seeing new stuff. I usually feel chill and revitalized afterward.

3) What are the best souvenirs you’ve ever collected while traveling?
I have started collecting patches of the places I've visited. Sometimes I have to go online to get them retroactively, but I have a big envelope full of them. I want to do some kind of display, but I can't decide if I should sew them onto something, or make a wall hanging, or what.

4) What is your fantasy vacation?
I think that hiking the PCT or AT would be AMAZING. And even though it's just a gigantic carving, I'd like to see Mt. Rushmore.

5) Would you want to be a space tourist?
Fuck yes, that would be amazing.

Journal is private, but I'll add anyone!


1) What famous landmarks have you visited?

Ummm... none? I went to Old Faithful in Yellowstone once. I travel a lot but I'm never interested in the landmarks. I lived in Paris for a while and never went to the Eiffel tower for example.


2) How has travel affected you?

I was abroad a lot starting from when I was 15 or so. I'm not a happy traveller, but I always wanted to be. It took me a long time to be okay with the fact that I'm a homebody. Now I don't even have a passport.
I spent most of my time in the developing world, so I guess it gave me a lasting since of appreciation for my easy life.


3) What are the best souvenirs you’ve ever collected while traveling?
TEXTILES. Also I have a lot of West African masks that are waiting to be broken to release their magic. They're about 2-3 inches long and finely detailed. I really like them.


4) What is your fantasy vacation?
I really kind of want to go back to Disney World, along with the Space Center, manatees and some coral reef diving. Not happening this decade though. That's not really a fantasy though. I just... like to be home. I love the ocean though, so all my trips are coastal.


5) Would you want to be a space tourist?

Hahahahhahaha! No. But I love sci-fi, and will totally stay down here to watch a Mars reality show.
