About Me

Since Sep 2005

Lives in Coto de Caza, California

Female

My mother was a stewardess for South African Airways (back in the day of glam travel), and I LOVE to travel. One sister lives in Mexico and much of my family is scattered throughout Australia, Spain, England and of course LA. I was born in Johannesburg. Travel is in my DNA. Give me something new. I love adventure, new places, interesting cultures, different tastes and smells and the journey is always enlightening. You can teach geography and culture in school, but until you experience it first hand can one truly understand it. Though I prefer luxury travel, I love to get down into the heart of a place, to meet the people who call it home. Guides are incredible and provide insight you'de not normally get. I'm done with tans - now give me memories I can share by traveling with friends and family.
