Favorite Destination

It has to be Seville, Spain, which is undoubtedly one of the most romantic places I have visited. I am passionate about food, drink and studying people.  So the off-the-beaten track tapas bars were delightful to combine all of these interests. I also loved strolling around the luscious oranges groves by day and dining out under the stars by night.  I still remember the sights, smells and sounds of the hypnotic Andalucían music.

Most Exotic Destination Traveled

Mauritius, my motherland, and Hong Island in Thailand

Travel Philosophy

Leave your blackberry or iPhone locked in the safe so you can really switch off. Live in the moment and cherish every moment.
