My favorite travel memory
I traveled to Germany, Austria, and Poland in January 2011 and it was my first European vacation. It was quite significant to me, since my girlfriend was born in Poland, which gave me the opportunity to see her country and where she was raised. Also, I am part Polish and it was nice to see where some of my ancestors came from. I am an avid skier and having the chance to ski the Swiss Alps was amazing! On top of that, I was finally able to experience some authentic Polish and German cuisine.
My hobbies and pastimes
I love playing guitar and it is a skill I acquired in grade school. Playing an instrument is relaxing to me, and it is a great way to unwind after a hectic day. I love winter because I have a passion for snowboarding/skiing. When I was younger I used to be more of a daredevil, but now I enjoy just cruising down the slopes. Gathering the family up over the holidays and continuing our traditions means a lot to me, especially as you get older since it becomes increasingly difficult to round everyone up.
My favorite travel destination
When it is time for a vacation, Riviera Maya, Mexico always seems to be my go-to vacation spot. The weather is perfect, the beaches are adequate for tanning, and all-inclusive deals (endless surplus of food) always go well with me because I am constantly hungry.
