About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Survive Oviedo

ABOUT ME

I am from Ireland but live in Oviedo, Spain when not backpacking around.

I'm an English teach who loves languages (despite only speaking English), how they relate to each other, and semantics.

Love music and reading, try to keep fit by practicing yoga, pilates and playing a bit of football.

PHILOSOPHY

You only have one chance to live on this earth so make opportunities for yourself, and take every opportunity you get; you can't rewind.
