About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Study hard for my PHD

ABOUT ME

We are a couple with no kids, married for ten years. We love travelling, scuba diving and hiking. We are open to all interesting activities, ideas, cultures, people. We prefer the countryside to city life, so at present we are trying to look for a farm to till in our spare time.

PHILOSOPHY

When you get there,there is no there there. by Gertrude Stein (Jack's quotation)

Do not trouble yourselves to get new things, whether clothes or friends. Turn the old, return to them. Things do not change, we change. Sell the things and keep your thoughts.----Thoreau (linda's quotation)
