My mission is to get out and see the world!! I love to have fun, meet new people, and experience the local flare rather than the touristy side of travel.. Love to live life and adventure out into the unknown!
I am a fun, vivacious, life loving gal that truly loves getting out and seeing all there is to see and meeting people and experiencing life!! I've been blessed with the pleasure of traveling in a first class manor almost every month since January 07. In a different season of life now, I am wanting to travel the world in a local sense and get to know those who make up the lovely places in which I travel. I have a very free spirit and have always been a lover of life and people. I'm hoping to open my son's mind up to experiencing life in a different light by meeting amazing people all over the world and having exciting experiences with them!!
I believe that life is what you make it. I tend to always try to find the positives in life, even if it seems to not be dealing me the cards I want. I try to always be kind and friendly and treat others as I would want them to treat me! Almost Always wear a smile, and laugh laugh laugh, because it's the best medicine!! Making lemonade out of lemons seems to make lives troubles sweeter...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
An awestruck moment for me was visting Iceland and traveling the Golden Circle.. Getting a massage in the rain at The Blue Lagoon geothermal spa... Walking out onto a waterfall, and staring down into a crater where Bjork performed countless concerts!
Another fabulous experience was boating at Lake Lucern...Taking the train up Mt. Pilates and looking down from the Alps,and Taking a tobaggon ride down the mountain!! Walking thru a quaint village along the Rhein River in Zurich! Driving thru the Black Forest in Germany!! Touring historical churches and cities that date back to biblical times!! Recently took my son to Italy.. we did amazing private tours in Rome of Sistien Chapel, St Peters Basilica, the coliseum and imperial Rome, Vatican, Capuchin crypts, spanish steps,Trevi.. Took a train and ferry to Positano and enjoyed the Almafi coast and Pompeii. Most memorable was taking a boat trip and visiting Capri.. My son and I swimming in the grottos and sharing the most amazing memories together with new found friends!!
Recently traveled to Thailand and Singapore and had an amazing time! Was alone and met up with friends and new CS friends! It was an awesome time and made new friends I still talk to!
