Hi there! My name is Amira and I love to travel and find new places to see and things to do. It always excites me to go to a new bar or restaurant around the city and try new foods! I also have the cutest kitten named Milo and he is the craziest little thing. I enjoy working out, and spending time with my friends and family on the weekends.
