For thrills I am a traveller, an adventure-seeker
For professional satisfaction I am an executive coach and a life coach
For joy, for exhilaration, I am a rider of Paso Fino horses, the spunkiest, smoothest horses in the world, especially my beloved 22-year-old bay mare, Franchesca.
In my heart I am a Bohemian, born in Prague. A restless exile, a rebel, a transplant, grown up in Canada, living a wonderful life in Canada, enormously grateful to Canada - and forever pining for Prague, for Europe, for home - for something, whatever and wherever it may be.
And for making sense of a life full of heartbreaks and triumphs, losses and recoveries, I am a writer. My memoir, Long Journey Home: A Prague Love Story, was published in 2018.
