It has given me the chance to travel the world, to explore places and cultures so different from my own as well as the opportunity of living in several of them. All my experiences have been added to a huge "luggage" collection and it is from this that I draw so much inspiration when I write.
I have just returned home after a lovely holiday in Europe, visiting family and friends. It's an annual trip and this time I visited two new places, Bath in England and Haarlem in Holland.
One of my favourite writers, Jane Austen, lived in Bath for several years and the city was a great inspiration to her. It may well appear in one of my books too one day! Perhaps even the one I am working on now...?
Happy travelling and happy reading!
