Where I have Traveled:  Living in Switzerland led me to countries like Austria, Italy, Mediterranean Islands like Mallorca, Gran Canaria Island and Capri.Also Mediterranean Cruises, Germany, Principality of Liechtenstein, France, UK, Spain, Hungary, Romania, Russia, Czech Republic, Turkey, Egypt, Kenya, Mauritius, Seychelles, Maldives, Thailand, Singapore, Hongkong and a many places in NA and Mexico

Every place on earth I go is a highlight by itself. All are absolutely unique and beautiful. I embrace the beauty of each country and I love sharing every experience with people around the world. A travel experience means being present in the places we visit together with all our senses. See it, smell it, hear it, taste it, touch it, feel it and love it.

Favorite Activities: Dancing, reading, traveling, hiking, cooking and baking, gardening, being with family

Favorite Food:  I am a FOODY! Love the taste different foods and spices from all over the world. Fresh Raspberries and vegetables from the garden, steak and of course… Swiss Chocolate

Community Involvement:  Currently I am volunteering weekly at the retirement home Sunset Manor Care Center with our dog Junior, visiting and bringing joy to the residents. In the past I volunteered as TA at the  Elementary school and with different activities at my children’s schools throughout the years.

About me:  My husband, Ivo, have met at age 16 and got married 10 years later. At 25 years old we moved from Switzerland to Canada. We got married, worked on my in-law’s dairy farm east of Innisfail and raised 3 wonderful children. Ryan is our first-born, then we had Sabrina and our youngest is Shannon. Being a wife and mother is the biggest blessing I could have wished for. After 5 years of dairy farming, we moved to an acreage and started our own business, which allows us to help people heal their wounds with all-natural skin care products. My family is my #1 love. With the older two children away from home, I allow myself to focus a bit more on my passions. Planning and preparing trips is just the beginning, experiencing and sharing with other people is the highlight. We have always travelled with our children since they were born and let me tell you…these are the greatest memories. Life is all about family and people wherever we go in this world.
