Born with itchy feet, I'm most happy when travelling - for me it's all about experiential learning. After many years of running an art gallery - my other passion - it seemed natural that my work and passion for travelling should coincide in the form of my villa in Bali, which greatly reflects my travels and interest - art, textiles, food, design and yoga.
So these days, in-between running art and yoga retreats at Villa Nilaya in Bali, I design and escort small-group tours to India and Ethiopia and Morocco for like-minded adventurous travellers who love getting a bit off the beaten track!
