About Me


i would liketo meet people form different cultures and understand and celebrate the differences. i would like to meet people who like to learn new things, share experiences and make international friendships and help to overcome barriers to communication


I'm quite a serious thoughful person. I love learning new things and experiencing new places. i find it very dificult to deal with the mundane. I am an absolute avid reader and love to try and speak new languages. I am interested in long in-depth conversations and love to know what makes people tick. I enjoy the company of new and different people and find it easy to inteact with people from all walks of life. In the past few years I have been sailing, seen the eclipse of the sun from 7000 feet in the Picos de europa,ridden an elephant in the rajasthan festival and danced with samburu tribe in africa. I enjoy camping and roughing it outdoors but am equally happy spending time roaming museums and art galleries. in fact there is not much i'm not interested in with the exception of maths mechanical devices and space


I think its important to have a purpose in life and mine is to make a difference however small to the lives of those I come in contact with
i believe that each person is unique and that is what makes life interesting
i think we have a responsibility to look after our planet and to enjoy the beauty we find there
