I am a mom of 2 gals, both married and both moms too. One in Switzerland and one on East Coast of the USA. Additionally, I am a Grandmom of 4 boys and 1 girl as of December 2012 .

Interests (Hobbies, favorite activities, etc.):

Travelling, Socialising with exemplary conversation, Gastronomy in all its forms, and fine Wines; the Arts; film, theatre, the visual arts, Museum exhibitions and the culinary arts. Dining and home gourmet.

What I do for a living:
