If you could have a historical figure for dinner, who would it be?

I would like to have Coco Channel and Nelson Mandela for dinner. I find Coco very inspirational as a woman and I believe she changed the way women feel in their clothes and her sense of indepence I admire it! Nelson Mandela is synonymous of deep compasionate love and forgiveness. I think I will enjoy ‎a great conversation with both!

What is your biggest temptation?

My partner in life.

Best recent travel?

South Africa, I was one month ago in Johannesburg and I enjoyed so much! It was very uplifting trip! I went to explore possibilities for the next BBALP location and it turn to be an amazing trip mostly because of the great people I met! I stayed at the Michelangelo Hotel in Mandela Square and they made my experience even better!
