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.
Other enjoyments include body surfing, good novels (and some easy-read best sellers at times), shoes (from flip flops to heels), and spending time on "artsy things."
