About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Find a job and save to travel again!

ABOUT ME

I am a very easy going person. I don't smoke or drink. I have been a vegan since june 2014, and love sports. I've been rock climbing for 10 years and climb at least once a week. Recently I've taken up slacklining and love it!

Friends would describe me as kind, honest, friendly and hard working. I like helping others more than myself.

I love meeting new people. I met many people on my travels and I enjoy meeting people from different parts of the world and hearing the stories of where they've been, what they do day to day and the little stories they have. They are the best!

Quit my crappy job to focus on trying to get a proper career job and alongside job hunting I am climbing 3 times a week, going to museums, slacklining, reading and just generally enjoying life!

PHILOSOPHY

Summed up by the below quotes: make peace, not war treat others how you would want to be treated imagination is more important than knowledge
