Originally from the wild giraffe mountains north of Raffsburgh, I came to Knollshire many years ago. I am married to Raph G. Neckmann, and we have three children: two daughters, Nexi and Necky Becky, and our toddler son, Littl' Nicky. In spring 2008 we stuck our necks out and launched our new family business, Giraffe World Tours. We bought our wonderful new bus and have had a great time taking visitors to some of the amazing places around our world. Entrepreneurship is habit-forming - we keep on adding to our portfolio of enterprises... These range from my husband Raph's more far-fetched ideas, (he wants to set up a mobile astronomical observatory on a second bus!), to greeting cards, fashion design, (by Nexi who is a student at Raffsburgh College), and gardening, (of which Necky Becky is in charge). In addition to all this, Raph's sister Nektareeni and her partner Girth own the fabulous Gleeful & Greedy Restaurant in the village. (They do most of our cooking!) Nektareeni also has a fashion shop - handy for Nexi's designs.
Our motto is 'Stick your neck out for your dreams!'
NB: Necky Becky just reminded me to mention Hals, her pet Neckshund dog.
