    jesus_crust:  i am located in NY

    Places I have been to: Bahamas, Jamaica, Florida, Salem, MA, Boston,MA, Portland, ME, Washington DC, Virginia, Richmond, VT, Ireland (twice), Paris, Barcelona, Florence, and Rome.

    Parents: My father used to work in the IT Dept for an international bank, my mother worked with my father for a short period until they got married and had my sister and I, then she became a dental assistant which she still is. My father passed away when I was 13.

    I didn’t start traveling until I met my husband. We started dating when we were 18, and I took my first trip alone – when I say alone I mean without my mom and sister Lol, we went to the Bahamas after we had been dating for 4 years. I had always wanted to travel but 1) didn’t have the money and 2) no one to go with lol

    My husband is in the insurance industry and I work in the accounting department for a property management company.
