Sociable, extrovert, I love meeting new people in every place I go. I'm the one asking for directions, just to start a conversation with a stranger and I am very curious and love asking questions... sometimes too many....! I really enjoy speaking different languages and if I can't understand my interlocutor, I'll just try sign language, which works most of the time! When I travel, I love exhibitions, shopping (of course) discovering hidden places with fewer or even no tourists and socializing with the locals.
My addictions are chocolate, dim sum, great red wine with cheese... my favourite place is.... Europe! each country's own heritage, culture, people and language.... with a soft spot for la bella Italia, Lisbonne, Prague and Berlin! Really enjoy Michael Palin's videos which transport me very far far away. As a host, I am very tidy clean, and I like baking for my guests ; it's a great excuse as I would eat it all if I were to bake for myself!!
