What's the best meal you've ever had?

Pho Bo at a Vietnamese restaurant outside my hostel in Berlin in the middle of winter. The food itself wasn't amazing, but it was one of my first times traveling alone and nothing was better than warm soup after a long day sightseeing out in the cold!

Describe your favorite childhood memory.

Our annual trip to lake Koronis in Minnesota. We'd spend a week fishing, tubing, and playing board games with our extended family.

Name your biggest fear.

I hate heights! But only when I'm around ledges. I suppose it's more of a fear of falling and really high places with steep ledges exacerbate the feeling.
