I like going places.
I was born in Austria, spent four years in the States and then lived in Germany until I was ten. My family traveled all over western Europe during that time. When we moved to Virginia, I felt more German than American. But we stayed put and I quickly adapted to fast food and TV. I left for college on the other side of the state and after graduation kept moving west: Texas, Utah, Montana. Missoula has been my home for nine years now – the longest I’ve ever lived in one place.
Being firmly rooted doesn’t mean I haven’t branched out. I’ve seen a lot of America, a little of Canada and a snippet of Mexico. And last year, two weeks worth of Italy.
But most of the time, I’m at home reading.
