I am an outgoing, friendly, adventuresome woman who has taken time off to travel the world. Full of stories and adventures, I love life and love to hear the stories of others. In 1995, my boyfriend, a pilot, was killed in a tragic airplane crash so I left the law firm in which I was working to travel the world for eight months starting in January, 1996. From diving off a yacht in Aruba and landing on an Octopus, sleeping alone on the Serengeti plains and being visited by a male lion at 4:00 a.m., being pushed off a boat, alone, in the Indian Ocean treading water as the boat motored out of sight, to having a near death experience with malaria in Zanzibar! It has been a wonderful life! Someday, I'll write a book! Live your dreams and enjoy the adventure called life! And don't forget to love one another.
