I never meet a stranger ;-)
I like thinking that I'm a European soul trapped in an American body, and I pretty much live and behave accordingly.
5 things I can't live without:
~ radiant health
~ my family and close friends
~ Italian, French, and Spanish football/men/music
~ olives, almonds, chocolate, Champagne ...
My life motto is to live the answer to the question "What would love do here?"
I try to be the type of guest that I would want to host = considerate, polite, respectful, fun, upbeat, joyful, generous, caring, a pleasure to be with ... someone with whom when I part company, I want to cry.
My style of traveling is to meet locals, and live life alongside them whenever and wherever possible. I adore discovering typical local foods and places that have soul and make my heart sing.
