About Me


to smile like i have a secret, to laugh like i need the excercise


adventurous. curious. humourous. often described as a "character" i am in love with life and all it has to offer. i am a bohemian at heart who loves to enjoy good food, fine architecture and great art. i love to travel and take in new and interesting places and people. i am just as comfortable enjoying a high tea in a 5 star hotel as i am haggling over 5 euros in a downtown market in dehli. i love watching people, reading books, drinking red wine and walking through markets and taking in a beautiful sunset. life has so much to offer us. now. today. every day.

i love and practice yoga, especially kundalini yoga.
i live in cape of the most beautiful city's in the world and would love to show off my city to like-minded visitors.


my personal philosophy is borrowed from the marxist belief of "from each according to ability, to each according to need".
