A foot massage when in Hong Kong.What was your most memorable journey?
It seems my life has been filled with journeys. Physical and spiritual ones. The most amazing and ongoing journey is probably that of an absolutely passionate Graphic Designer turning into an absolutely passionate Pilates instructor. I still work as a designer, but now I also work with bodies and that is most incredible experience.
