I'm Karin. I live in NY full-time and travel to my house in Todi whenever I can! I recently returned to live in the US after 10 years of living in London. I purchased my house in Italy 5 years ago as a holiday home/investment. I work as a designer and so have also taken pride in decorating my house to reflect its old and new Italian character. I'm single, in my early forties, no kids or pets, but I do spend a good amount of time with friends who sometimes travel with me. I love painting and cooking, as well as experiencing different cultures and meeting new people which encourages me to travel. At this time I want to finally visit Australia--Sydney and Melbourne on this first trip.
