About Me


Living for the moment.


I'm a spontaneous, fun-loving kind of girl, though more a listener than a talker, who likes to explore new places and experience different cultures. Not much the all-inclusive-hotel friend.
I have so many books that my bookshelves are threatening to crack, and I make up stories, which I started doing before I could even write myself.
I love horses, rock climbing, castles & old towns, meeting friends, nature, movies, and food. :)

Things I still really want to do are sky-diving, bungee-jumping, getting a motorcycle licence, a dude-ranching holiday, go on a solitary road trip (doesn't really matter where), and finally finish a novel.

I love to cook, though I'm not exactly creative in that area (thank heaven for good recipes), but I hate clearing away the mess afterwards. :D That doesn't mean I don't do it, but that it's more fun having company.


Do what you wanna do! The World is a Playground.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Lived through hurricane Dean when on holiday on Yucatan, Mexico. Scary, but also kind of cool, in a weird way. :)

One of the most amazing, close-to-nature holiays I had was on Lake Temagami in Canada. I love that place. I could so imagine living there (in the summers, at least :D), enjoying the peace, writing...

Two-mile gallop along an empty beach on an Irish Hunter that never wanted to stop! Haleluja! Go Busky!!
