Interview

IF I HAVE A FREE SUNDAY I WOULD SPEND IT… baking banana bread, drinking tea and looking out the window with my cat, watching a movie on the couch, reading in bed, walking slow and unhurried in nature, or playing video games. 

MY MOST MEMORABLE TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WAS… turning around a corner on a road, on a mountain, in a (very fast) taxi, and seeing Positano for the first time. It was a surreal movie moment (the car was moving so fast but everything seemed to slow down when we turned around the corner, it was amazing!). Seeing Sakura petals slowly fall down in Japan and time went by so slow in the best way possible, and staying in a Ryokan in Japan. 

THE COUNTRY I MOST WANT TO VISIT IS… Greece and Egypt (all the historical landmarks, I love history and archaeology)

WHAT I LOVE MOST ABOUT MY JOB IS… the life lessons I learned, and the amazing people. 

IF I DIDN’T DO THIS FOR A JOB I WOULD BE… a registered Nurse (my original job), if not that, something in computer science/IT, or maybe an archaeologist, history professor, interior architect, or a pet boarding/grooming shop owner! 

IF I COULD GIVE NEWLY ENGAGED COUPLES ONE PIECE OF ADVICE IT WOULD BE… this is your wedding, listen to your gut, do what you both truly want. 

I LOVE WHERE I LIVE BECAUSE… I can make snow angels, swim at the beach, and drive through the desert on the same day. 

IF I COULD LIVE ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD IT WOULD BE… Montana, Wyoming, Japan or the English countryside.

MY FAVOURITE MOVIE IS? Blade Runner, Jurassic Park, Amelie. 

MOST MEMORABLE MEAL I’VE EVER EATEN WAS… 13-course dinner at a Ryokan (in Japan)

THE PETS I OWN ARE… my sweet 12-year-old grey cat, Chicha, she's my best friend.
