NP: What is your favorite sport?
Fishing on a boat! Did I mention I grew up with three older brothers, male cousins, and my uncle and dad--who were all very devoted fishermen? I find a day out fishing on the boat with the water and the serenity of the sea to still be one of my favorite things to do.

NP: Describe your perfect day.
That’s a given! Waking up in my caravan at a gorgeous holiday spot (some beachside location) and getting up, turning on my laptop and checking my emails and Facebook pages while enjoying my coffee. Heading outside to sit at someone’s campsite and chat with our group of friends and family (last trip there was 64 of us including kids). Going out for the day to investigate new beaches and sights, coming back to the van and cooking a delicious meal on the Weber (BBQ), then sitting around again enjoying a homemade Bailey’s on the rocks while talking and having a laugh. Finally, watching a movie in the van before going to bed so that I can wake up and do it all over again the next day. 

NP: Are you a morning or night person?
Mainly morning I would say. I love waking up to face the challenges of the day. I love what I do, so getting up is easy for me.
