random facts about me

I had no great desire to travel the world until I found out I was going blind at age 19. My uncle fashioned a certificate for being “a courageous kid” and bought me my first international holiday to Indonesia. Nowadays I love the way my husband and I travel – walking for hours, eating good food, taking photos, visiting museums and galleries and getting a little peak into daily life.
Growing up, I travelled Australia a lot and had great adventures with my mum. We spent many school holidays cruising the islands of tropical North Queensland with my grandmother who lived on a yacht. We also camped, hiked, rode horses, competed in triathlons and skied and I am forever grateful for all the fun my mum gave me.
I don’t drink alcohol. After a few months of nightclubbing at age 18/19 the whole scene lost its appeal very quickly. I’ve never acquired the taste for wine due to the resulting blocked sinuses and sneezes. I also don’t like the way alcohol makes my senses fade away more. I enjoy a baileys and milk maybe once a year and the occasional sip of my husband’s favourite craft beers. Friends don’t even mention it, it’s a non-issue – I have plenty of fun without it!
