“Namaste. Bula. G’day. Howdy. And Aloha! Welcome to Gigi wanders.”
In Gigi wanders I don’t focus on one topic or theme, but rather present a variety of subjects and musings.
Without planning or design, I’ve lived in different countries and cultures, studied disparate disciplines, and lead a relatively unconventional lifestyle. As such, I’m multifaceted, interested in everything, and curious about the nature of being – the business of ‘is-ness’ in life, if you will.
So, it’s about words. It’s about ideas. It’s about images.
It’s about you. It’s about me. It’s about us. Sharing.
I’m imbued with a special joy and excitement in ‘presenting’ to you, and I hope you receive it in the same spirit. Because, in the end, isn’t it all quite strange and so very wonderful?
And now for the, ahem, official version …
Gigi’s life maps a triangle of three different countries.
Born and raised in the Fiji Islands, the South Pacific remains the guardian and host of all her best memories. She finished high school at St. Catherine’s in Sydney, Australia, and went on to study, with distinction, Economics (B.Ec), Political Science (B.A), and International Relations (MA.IR) at the Australian National University in Canberra.
Emerging as a blend of island girl and laid-back Aussie, and realizing belatedly that she didn’t want to be an economist, political scientist, or diplomat, Gigi began traveling the globe even more extensively than she did as a child with her family.
Gigi has lived in various cities on the Australian continent, called Teton Valley, Wyoming, home for a while, and currently resides in Honolulu, Hawai’i.
She considers the world her home, its people her family, and her citizenship as international.
