About Me


Just back in the UK after a year living in Argentina and Bolivia, and also travelling around the continent, some charity work, partying - having fun and keen to meet great/interesting people


Love music (rock, classic, clubbing), big nights out, visiting other European cities, too much good wine, travelling to new places, meeting fun people, ODing on coffee, well-written history, uncompetitive tennis, walking up hills, skiing down mountains, speaking German, running (small distances), love cooking, hate McDonalds...and so on
