Not so long ago I traveled to Bavaria, Germany, with family and friends. We landed in Munich and took a train to Oberammergau; the prettiest village I’ve ever been to. The reason we went was to watch the famous “Passion Play”, which is performed there only every ten years.
I’ll never forget when I went to London in 2012 to compete in Top Model UK. What an exciting time in one of the best cities of the world! I was there for a few weeks for the show and stayed in the Hilton Hotel, London Metropole. During my free time, I made sure I dressed warm because it was the middle of winter and it was so chilly outside!
One of my greatest passions in life is travel. 3 Months ago I found myself in Sintra, on the west coast of Portugal. I was up in Portugal with my mom for the annual Rotary Convention in Lisbon, and I took a day trip into Sintra with her. It was a cute little town with castles & buildings dating back to the 8th & 9th centuries. It’s known for its wine & traditional confectionery. The Sintra National Palace & The Castle of Moors are actually World Heritage sites.. so if you find yourself looking for a day trip while in Lisbon, you won’t go wrong with this! The fountain pictured is their famous “marriage” fountain… anyone who drinks from it will supposedly find love soon! So let’s see 😉 … It’s funny to think that only a few months after this I would find myself on the opposite end of the world in New York studying acting. You never know where life will take you!
Traveling is like flirting with life. It’s like saying, ‘I would stay and love you, but I have to go; this is my station.’ – Lisa St Aubin de Teran
This is a wonderful non-profit organization which dedicates itself to relieve some of the heartache and difficulties faced by childhood Cancer-affected families. They support children with Cancer and their families as well as promote Childhood Cancer Awareness. It was founded in 2009 and is a registered NPO with PBO status. I am so honoured to be an ambassador for them and I am looking forward to our first project together, a visit to St Josephs.
