About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To afford to travel.

ABOUT ME

All? Ok, I read somewhere that the more you write, the better I'm the odds of responses are here.

quite a relaxed person, I like Music, mainly listening to it, and also playing a little bit myself.

I was outdoors a lot a few years ago, did a lot of camping trips in the Irish countryside, worked on an organic farm part-time, I haven't done these things in about a year and I miss them. I have a fascination for nature. I enjoy travelling on my own. Meeting strangers along the way is always interesting.

In 2005 I discovered a joy for travelling when I booked a flight in the middle of winter from Ireland to Argentina. I went on my own without a word of spanish and no plan. I had the best 5 weeks of my life there.

Best way to know about someone is to get to know them.

PHILOSOPHY

"Wherever you go, there you are."

"If life gives you lemons. Juggle. "* *alternatively "If life gives you lemons, have some tequilla"

"Are those my feet?"

"I've places to see and people to be"
