I love to travel so this is really hard. Key is great food, culture, people, and somewhere that takes you out of your comfort zone.
I have infant twins, so my free time is with them! Or when I can, practicing my golf swing.
Did I mention I have twins? I haven’t read a book twice, but I love historical books about financial events and start-ups. Barbarians at the Gate is still one of my favorites.
I put together a list of things I want to get done that day.
