"Wish I could travel like Phileas Fogg......" austen1973's Profile

Hello VTers,

My travels so far have taken me to a about 40 countries and my new plan is to do at least 4 new countries a year...and as there are a bit over 200 countries I still have a very long way to go....not to mention that when I'm thru with my RTW trip there's still Mars to visit !

Live and let live...

Want to know about me ?

Who am I ? Girl, born and raised in Belgium and I've been fortunate to grow up with 2 cultures and 3 languages. I'm currently working for a bank but I really wouldn't mind being a professional traveller !

What am I ? Coke lemon addict, bookworm, Skywalker and Jane Austen worshipper (who said weird mix ? ), Coldplay and Texas fan, art lover, immune to shopping, tex and indian food crazy, snails eater and adrenaline junkie which is totally in contradiction with my being the worst granny-like driver of this planet....

Travel pages

I only recently started building my travel pages this summer and the ones I worked on the most so far are Cuba and Brussels....but as I do not have a lot of time, I'm very far with being done, so be patient....
Only went digital recently and I've tried as best as I could to scan pics of my previous travels but not very successfully I'm afraid.
All pictures on my pages are my own (no copies or postcards) but I forgot to mention that although I like photography very much, I'm probably the worst photographer ever so if you see anything that shouldn't be in normal pics...sorry but I did try my best !

    Hi Amina, was browsing round your pages, and it seems you've been getting around quite a bit :-). How did the trip to Tanzania go? Any more close encounters with wild cats??

Share your travels with the world!
