I Iove great conversation, connecting with inspirational and courageous people (everyone has their story), exploring new places, dining out, wine tasting, meditation, films, TED talks, Radio National, DIY and creative projects and Kevin (my partner - you'll love him too). Born and bred in the Adelaide Australia; I adore traveling everywhere else and then coming home. Have visited the UK and western Europe quite a bit, SE Asia and Japan, USA and Canada, most recently Airbnb...ing along the way. Not long ago I recognised the pleasures of cruising......a luxurious floating caravan where the travel happens while I snooze in comfort ready for a day in port. Next trip when I get the chance: Melbourne to see number 2 son then on to New Zealand (so close and I've never been.....go figure?).
