.

Q. Do you like traveling? What’s the best place you’ve travelled to? Do you have any vacations planned?

A. I love to travel!  My partner and I are a little bit obsessed with Vegas at the moment and have been the last 3 years in a row.  2020 would have been our 4th year…. But Covid!  We cannot wait to get back once travelling allows it.  I am also obsessed with travel hacks and organisation for travel, I almost treat that as a hobby!

.

Q. Do you have any hidden talents or hobbies?

A. I have discovered that I am quite creative.  I enjoy making decorative pieces and upcycling for my house.  I find this calming and enjoyable.

Q. Are you a sports fan? Who are your favourite teams?

A. Oh yes!  All the sports!  Football team is Chelsea.  I am South African, so my rugby team is of course the Springboks.  I am an ice hockey season ticket holder and my team is the Belfast Giants.

.

Q. What’s your favorite thing to do on the weekends?

A. Depends on the mood and the weather.  If it’s a grey day, I love to cuddle up on the sofa and watch movies or a boxset.  If it’s a lovely day, I enjoy getting together with family or friends, sit outside with the dogs running around, having a few drinks and listening to music.
