Use the ideas on the right, or plan other exciting explorations for us! Because I get around a lot and I’m liable to pop up anywhere. Because I plan to post the photos of our adventures on Social media I ask that you help me not violate anyone’s personal privacy by snapping a pic of me alone and describing the activity I’m doing.
