About Me

I’m Peter, the helmsman of this here blog.  Welcome aboard!

Some random things about me with no rhyme or reason:

  • Time is my most precious commodity.  I struggle trying to balance work and play, there just never seems to be enough time to read, socialize and be creative.
  • Music is hugely important in this world.
  • I ramble, ski, kayak, sail, bicycle, and fly kites.  I think I could be good at surfing with practice but I only did it once.
  • I travel to lose control, be flexible and ride at the whim of different cultures.  It is a freedom I don’t have in my daily life.
  • I can run pretty fast.
  • My most rewarding travel moments usually occur when I am not sightseeing.
  • I love the language, creativity and potential of technology.
  • Spending money doesn’t make me happy.  I’ve known this about myself for as long as I can remember.
  • I look forward to each change in the seasons.
  • I love to cook, especially for others.  I prefer the cuisines of Asia, the Andes and the Mediterranean.  Simple one-pot meals are my favorite, such as homemade rice & beans or a hearty stir fry.
  • I enjoy observing the game of politics.  To me it is a sport.
  • I’ve never really wanted a tattoo.  I can’t think of anything I’d want permanently inscribed on my body.
  • I’ve never regretted writing a letter, going for a walk, working out or doing a crossword.  Ever.

  1. Hola,
    I am Amy. I am fortunate to have a brother-in-law named Peter. I am ultra fortunate he will be providing me food, drinks, lodging and laughs for the summer:)
    Hasta la vista baby!!

    This is a great blog Peter!! Paul told me you were busy working on it.

    1. Hey Amy! So glad you are stalking me on the internets… this is indeed a work in process, I’ve just hit the tip of the iceberg. The goal is to have this more developed by the time I start my next Big Adventure so stay tuned.

      I can’t wait for you to get here, this summer will be off the hizzy.

      xoxo Peter
