Thank you for reading my profile. I am using Air B&B to find accommodation as I travel around Europe, finishing my trip in New York. This three-month trip is a kind of reward for my studies, my parenting and my 12 years of service to my work. Last year in 2012 I finished three years of part-time study (Grad Dip in Editing and Publishing and a Masters of Communications) while working full time. I have raised three gorgeous children, now all grown up, who I am very proud of and love dearly. We all came to Europe with my parents in 2007, three generations together, and since then my children got the travel bug and I have been dreaming about taking this trip. I am 53 years old, an Australian and a daughter of Italian (Sicilian) descent. Was a secondary teacher a long time ago and now work in communications in a NPF organisation. I look forward to meeting other travellers on my journey and also meeting my lovely hosts from Air B&B.
