About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Travel, Talk, Discover

ABOUT ME

To learn. I have understood myself enough to realise that I'm somewhat (perhaps overly) fixated on learning. By experience, that is. Travelling in every sense fulfils my appetite in a large manner. Usually I'm very inclined towards languages, exotic cultures (although Europe doesn't feel exotic any more having spent considerable number of years), history.

PHILOSOPHY

All of us get lost in the darkness, dreamers learn to steer by the stars. (NP)
