I like to think of myself as a traveler -not a tourist. I think part of the fun of traveling is seeing new places and experiencing different things. Even within the United States I thought it was more fun when the cities were different rather than everyone having the same malls with the same stores.
I am definitely a lover of animals as my gallery here shows, and I am very involved in trying to raise awareness of endangered species, in particular the orangutans.
Other enjoyments include body surfing, good novels, shoes (from flip flops to heels), and spending time on "artsy things."
