Music, Movies, and Books
I watch all sorts films, listen to all sorts of music and read all sorts of books! The Usual Suspects is a favourite film, I love hip hop, electro and chilled beats - and a lot more besides. I've just discovered The Menahan Street Band, who are great: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eseQkCJLzrY
Papillon and Any Human Heart are great reads.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
South Africa is a beautiful country. I experienced safari (Hluhluwe-Umfolozi) , beaches (Umhlanga Rocks) and history (Rorke's Drift and Isandlwana in Kwazulu Natal on one amazing trip, too long ago, I must go back!
Travelling across Norway from Oslo to Bergen via skiing in Yeilo and the fjords by Flam was amazing.
Off piste skiing in fresh powder is one of life's great pleasures.
