make the most out of the hot weather :)
I like to describe myself as "Travel-addict, extroverted, talker, nomad, with a chronic case of Peter Pan syndrome... oh, and according to my friends: "naturally high".
According to Travel Brain (Facebook app): "Bianca is a globetrotter that doesn't mind roughing it, is happy with a roof and running water, lives on the edge, has great travel credibility, fits in with the locals and has been to 233 cities in 36 countries. "
To know more about me, just read my references.

I travel like Rolf Potts !

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I shaved my head for charity in june 2013 to raise money for leukemia and blood cancer foundation New Zealand (you can view pictures here: http://www.shaveforacure.co.nz/view_event_profile/9951)
Skydiving with my mother (age 65) was a priceless, bonding experience!
plus many many more... to be told in person over a glass of wine or coffee
