Fun Facts:

What's your favorite travel destination, or where would you like to go?

I have so many places I would still like to go. I completed one leg of the Camino de Santiago (The French Way). I really want to go back and complete another leg of the French Way, and then I want to finish at least one leg of the Portuguese Way.

What did you want to be when you were small?

I enjoy history, science and nature, so I really wanted to be an archaeologist.

Is there anything you wish would come back into fashion?

I really love all the fashion from the eighties, except for mullets. Well, maybe not the Michael Jackson gloves or "members only" jackets either.
