I'm well travelled and work in international development, so having an open mind is the order of the day! My family is an incredible mix of French, Spanish and English culture, so there's never a dull moment at the dinner table.
The five things I can't live without? Occitaine body cream, my i-phone (shame on me for mentioning the i-word), my kindle, my computer, my family. I know that makes me sound very techy minded, but it does allow me to travel and not be tied to the desk.
My favourite travel destination? the Himalayas (Nepalese side)
Favourite book is the prophet by Khalil Gibran
Favorite movey 'The Straight story' by David Lynch, an old man decides to travel to see his brother and has to make a journey across the state on the back of a lawnmower. It's a must see!
Favorite music, anything semi-acoustic, Ryan Adams, is pretty up there on my list.
Favorite food, probably something pasta associated. Thank God for the Italians!
As a guest, I'm very respectful of someone else's living space. I like to share dinner, conversation a good bottle of wine. As a host, it's the same.
