A little bit about Coco in her own words:
"I have travelled far and wide in my gypsy lifetime. Long hours locked in a demanding job left me dreaming of time to do nothing but cook, eat and laugh with loved ones in the sunshine. In search of a sustainable life balance I developed a healthy habit of gathering friends and family to join me abroad for this pursuit of slow living. In the course of the last decade I put aside my fashion work and founded Travellur; a travel planning service providing and promoting slow travel. I've learned that when traveling, doing less is living more. My goal is to bring the sweetness of life."
Any guy would be damn lucky to score a sweet date with Coco!
