I love exploring cities. If I had the opportunity to live in every great American city for a year at a time, I would snatch it up. Short of that, I enjoy walking and biking around new cities whenever I can. Active streets are great because we interact with people we otherwise wouldn't be able to if traveling by car. I love Minnesota--feel free to contact me and I'll tell you all about it.
