Something you wouldn't tell anyone? Last week, I accidentally super glued my nostril closed. I was repairing a pair of shoes and I must've gotten the glue on my fingers. When I wiped my nose, I inadvertently glued my right nostril shut. It was a hot look. The worst part wasn't even gluing my nose though - it was the fact that I had to repair an expensive pair of shoes AGAIN! Side note: nail polish remover dissolves super glue so I am ok now.
Favorite Movie: Lost in Translation
What are you currently reading? "My Life in Paris" by Julia Child (a very nice bday gift from my mum)

As many of you know, I love to travel. I love it so much that my day job, ahem, "chosen career" is in travel. One thing you may not know about me is that for the most part, unless I am on Japan Airlines, I really dislike flying.
I am not afraid of it per se - it's just an uncomfortable experience overall unless you're on Singapore Airlines or you can cough up the cash at the counter for an upgrade (FYI - it's short money for a counter upgrade on South African Airways or Japan Airlines). For some reason, flying gives me anxiety. Well, everything gives me anxiety but that's a completely different post.
My great aunt told me I should take a tranquilizer with a wine cooler and then, I should be all set.
Right now, I am preparing for a trip to Europe and then, I'll be onto South America & Antarctica. AND I am freaking out. AND I have no tranquilizers. AND I think Bartles & Jaymes went out of business 30 years ago. Champagne problems...I know.
Speaking of which, maybe a glass of champagne would not be a bad idea right now...
Stay tuned for photos and anecdotes.
