What inspires you?
By travelling and living abroad I have obtained a wider perspective on the world. I find it fascinating how each country and culture handle space differently.

I was moved by the beauty of Machu Picchu. It is no wonder it was named one of the New 7 Wonders of the World. Cusco was so rich in culture and color, Peru was an unforgettable experience.
