I’m going on tour because: I’ve always wanted to do one of the non-European tours, but my schedule never permitted. More importantly, I’m drawn to the region for its natural beauty.
I’m world famous for: My massages, as well as funky dance moves.
People don’t know this about me: I love gelato. Oh wait, they DO know that about me.
The thing I’m most keen on doing in China is… experiencing the mountains in Yunnan, meeting some new people (on the tour, and along the way), and hanging out with my in-laws before and after the ride.
