I was thrilled to be welcomed to Slovenia to film my travel show entirely outside in nature during their Green and Safe campaign. There is no other place like Slovenia, full of beautiful nature, amazing food and wine, adventure around every corner and friendly people. Slovenia is the true gem in Europe. I dedicated the EMMY to the people of Slovenia, thank you for letting me explore your breathtaking country! Around every corner is a view worthy of a picture, I couldn’t put my camera down! I can’t wait to come back, after all my husband has Slovenian roots, so I need to show him his homeland! Special thanks to the National Tourism Board for their support creating this program, you do an amazing job promoting your country! This award has given me the motivation to keep on traveling and exploring our beautiful world.”
