Sandra is a professional tourist
. Her parents being diplomats and UN officials she's been traveling since she was born. Half French, half Argentinean she's lived in England, France, Spain,
Ireland, Holland, the United States, Chile, Peru, Argentina and Venezuela. After her international business studies she became a strategic planner for
the French fashion and beauty firms, as well as the movie and music industry: Her job was to travel the world to report on the latest fashion and beauty
trends so that firms and artists could know what the next craze would be and get inspired.
Sandra has now settled in Paris and her love of this beautiful Capital, her ability to uncover the new, the unique and the offbeat and her hand-on knowledge of the experiences a traveler to a new country will crave for has grown into a business idea.
