Although passionate about her life and career, Gail's time is best spent with her family. She is mother of one, and bonus mum to two, together with her partner Michael. She is a lover of books, languages, and cultures, having lived in a few countries so far; music - both classical as she plays the piano herself, and rock, most especially grunge. She makes it a point to attend as many live concerts as she can, most especially those of the Foo Fighters. Gail also has a passion for rugby (watching not playing!), scuba diving, and shooting guns! Her artistry comes in the form of capturing beauty on her phone, rendering her photo collection the best possible advert for Malta; writing...which she has so far chosen not to publish; and tattoos, of which she has a few, and counting! She is also passionate about the environment, and does her part by attending many cleanups - organised and not; planting trees; sponsoring rescue efforts for injured wildlife; and supporting various other environmental organisations.
