Favorite Travel Experience: “Collecting countries”, has been a passion of mine since I was old enough to fly alone and I continue to be inspired, challenged and blessed as I seek out new countries that I’ve yet to explore and other’s so welcoming and familiar, that I keep returning to, like a pair of old slippers. So far my favorite travels have included diving the Great Barrier Reef, hiking Abel Tasman in NZ, spotting the “Big Five” in Africa, swimming with baby sea lions in the Galapagos Islands, celebrating my birthday riding in a horse drawn buggy through the streets of Rome, watching Swan Lake in St Petersburg, totally enjoying gelato after hiking from village to village in Cinque Terre, Italy, savoring all the flavors of fresh seafood paella in Seville, Spain after taking a Flamenco Dance class. “So many countries, so little time”.

Interesting Personal Fact: I am a Flamenco Dancer!
