|My ever-loyal dog, Skochek. Not once has he turned his back on me!|
|New Year's 2000 with Tobin and Dana, who work at the same restaurant I do. Tobin and I also went to France together.|
|I've known Stephanie since highschool and we've seen eachother go through a lot.
ie: marriage & divorce, broken hearts, severe family dysfunction, a bout with a crazy religion, and a pursuit and return to an independent life and an education. Go Steph!!
|Someone I look up to, Nancy has been a family friend for years. Intelligent, independent, successful, and adventurous ... I wanna be like Nancy when I grow up!|
|Steph, me, Becky, and Alyssa, on Alyssa's 21st birthday, which we celebrated at the Hard Rock Cafe.|
|Nicole, from the Netherlands, became one of my best friends when we met in Israel, where we were roommates in the same kibbutz. This picture is very bitter-sweet, as we are saying goodbye to eachother in Eilat, where she was off to Greece.|
|I met Stephanie in 1997 when I worked in Yellowstone, where she became my roommate. Since then, I've visited her twice in her homeland of France, and she paid me a visit in California in 2001. See our crazy car-trip adventures!|
|Rachel (Canada) was like an older sister to me at kibbutz Ein Gedi and in Eilat, when she'd visit me on my boat. She was very bright and had her "shit" together, so to speak. (hyuck-hyuck!)|
|I met Laurien (Dutch) and Gareth (Irish) on a train from the east of the Czech Republic to Poland. We had some great times in Krakow! We later agreed to meet up in Paris, then I visited Gareth in Dublin on my return home.|
|I met Oanh (San Diego, California) as she was trying to find her hostel in Prague. Little did I know we'd travel together through Spain and Portugal for a few weeks.|
|Living it up in Barcelona with Oanh and our friend, Rene (Dutch). I later met up with Rene in Amsterdam.|
|I met Roberto and Jose (Mexico), Clenio (Brazil), and Xavi (Spain) at Kibbutz Ein Gedi, in Israel. The four of us where soon inseparable during that time, pretty much. I was referred to as "La Muda" ("The Mute") by the guys, since it was easier for me to listen to their conversations, rather than formulate a complex conversation in Spanish, at first. We ended up traveling through Jordan and Egypt together....times and friends I will never forget.|
