The Fun Stuff

Random thing about me? I am (loosely) attempting to teach myself Italian.

Perfect Saturday? Waking after a restful night of sleep, good coffee and breakfast, and a sunny day outside exploring with loved ones.

Superpower you’d like to have? I would have to say teleportation, so that I could experience more cultures and food than I would otherwise be able to!
