I am an obsessed traveler who loves to explore new places, to shop at local markets, cook the food I find, and accompany it all with a glass of wine or three. I love music and hanging out in cafes, I love urban settings and also the sea and the mountains. When I am not traveling I spend a lot of time in Santa Barbara, California (I work with the magazine Edible Santa Barbara) and San Diego, California (where I have a condo that I am not at very much.) I am a pretty chill person and very respectful of other people's property - an apartment I am in, even for a couple of days, is mine - and I treat it like I would treat mine. With respect. Life motto? Life is too short to drink bad wine, and try to be the best person you can be. No one else is better qualified.
