My first trip was with my parents to Rhodes, Greece when I was eight years old - and started coincidently with the same day Chernobyl exploded in the Soviet Union.
I have travelled constantly ever since, mostly backpacking solo. I have done two longer journeys: a solo trip to India/Nepal and South-East Asia in Oct 2002 - May 03, and Europe, Middle East and Asia with my husband in March 2008 - Feb 09. Shorter trips include backpacking in Europe and Africa etc. for several weeks. Also, I have taken the Trans-Siberian railway to Mongolia and China and sailed on a tall ship from Brazil to the Caribbean, just to mention a few trips.
I am also a member of Couch Surfing society.
My Favorite Places:
You may think I have a weird taste, but Afghanistan and Mongolia - which were my childhood dreams. On this childhood list was also Nepal (where I have been) and Tibet, Bhutan, Tahiti and Easter Island where I havenīt been yet. Other favorites are Italy; Lebanon (where I have also lived shortly), Syria and Petra in Jordan; Saba (Netherland Antilles) and Borneo for nature and diving. And of course Paris, France!!
