Cindy Eve

55+, born in South Africa, now residing in the United Kingdom, Mother (of one fabulous daughter), daughter, eldest of 5 sisters &amp, 2 brothers (1 deceased), Aunty to 3 (2 girls & 1 boy), Great-aunty to 7 (4 boys & 3 girls), Cousin (too many), Sister-in-law, and eagerly anticipating becoming a granny.

I am passionate about travelling and love planning trips to and exploring new & exciting places. I am an enthusiastic photographer (still learning), adrenaline sports lunatic, personal development ex-junkie, and all round lover of life.

I love reading, writing (2 published books), writing poetry (published), reading poetry and biographies of interesting people e.g. Richard Branson, Nelson Mandela. I thoroughly enjoy swimming, cycling, walking, caving, cruises, teaching, blogging, twittering, developing websites (with help from my #1 daughter), exploring, history, the English language and collecting travel magazines.

I am 90% vegetarian, a daily activist, concerned about the future of our planet, keen to leave a legacy, and care about children, animals and adults in distress. Oh and I love cats and small, baby creatures.

You can work pretty much where you want to – on the road, do you find it hard to work or do you just have fun and work when you come back home?

A bit of both really. I travel (mostly on foot) around London for up to 9 hours at a time - tweeting info, posting photos on Instagram and checkin g in on foursquare as I go. When I get home I then upload the photos to an album on Facebook, pin to relevant boards on Pinterest and create a blog (although that usually take a few days) and over the week I create a video for YouTube.

Do you feel many people are envious of your lifestyle?

Ummm, no I don't think so. I think they appreciate my love of London and enjoy the information and photos that I share. I know lots of my followers enjoy the photos I share and the historical info.

In which countries have people recognised you, even when you thought nobody would?

No idea.

Which three items would you never travel without?

My phone (doubles up as a camera), my chargers and my toothbrush.

Are there any specific souvenirs or other things you collect from the places you go to?

I usually buy a pair of socks that reflects the place I am in - tulips in Amsterdam, I Love NYC, or I buy a small item that reflects the culture like a glass bell in Murano.
