      Hi Princess,

      Good to meet you! :)

      Nice and lighthearted reading... I fancy being an actress or wildlife photographer! Thomas Mangelsen is one of my favorite wildlife photographers and he has been EVERYWHERE to shoot animals and nature. His work is OUTSTANDING... I think I must do a hub about him.

      I nearly became an air hostess in my teen years, and then I met the man who became my first husband, so I dropped that idea. I often wonder how different my life might have been if I had gone for the interview....

      Voting UP and interesting! :)
