As many of you know, I'm of the opinion that gondola people are interesting.
Furthermore, we tend to have a thing for travel.
Put a bunch of gondoliers and people associated with the trade in a room and you're likely to find some "travel junkies" in the group.
Some of the personnel I've had the honor of employing have surfed epic waves in Indonesia, run with bulls in Pamplona, Spain, and gone SCUBA diving in Truk Lagoon.  My right-hand man Steve Elkins is currently filming in Chile.
In my Newport Beach operation we have several folks who fit the "travel junkie" profile, but none come close to my office manager, Alison White.
She just locked in her seventh continent: Africa.

Ah, but Alison didn't just go to Africa, no, that wasn't enough.
While she was there, she decided to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, cause, you know - it was there.

After climbing the highest peak in all of Africa, she then went on safari, after all, that's what you DO when you go to Africa.  Or so they tell me.

I'm SO going on safari one day!

For me, there is no better symbol of Africa than mighty Mt. Kilimanjaro. No trip to Africa would be complete without at least seeing this majestic mountain.
