About Me


To meet a diverse group of individuals and to live and enjoy life for the short period of time that we have on it...thus being open minded for new cultures & experiences and to travel as long as I can for as long as I could.


When I do get the opportunity to travel I like to take the "off the beaten" track. I enjoy good food and wine and music. I like to be open to all kinds of experiences but maintain a healty balance. When in Rome , you do as the Romans...I have travelled into Africa with my 4wheel drive , but also love Europe and have some good friends in Amsterdam.Iam becoming a little bit older...more wiser , more relaxed , but can still enjoy myself.


Class is when you can walk with Kings and keep your virtue , but still speak to the common people and have the common touch....
