- In high school and college (years ago), I was active in Model United Nations programs and won several best delegate awards. My interest in NationStates started because of its UN simulation, but these days I like creating imaginary countries based on RL places I've been and things that are important to me (hence Mikitivity is about snow, water, trains, and very loud / politically motivated offensive music).
- I like to travel a great deal, and have been to the following countries: US, Canada, Japan, England, Norway, the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, France, Spain, Luxembourg, Switzerland, and Liecthenstein. I've also been to the UN headquarters in New York and Geneva ... I actually gave a speech in a private dinning room at the UN headquarters in New York related to the construction industry and environmental management.
