About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To stay happy

ABOUT ME

I am fortunate enough to have emabarked on 2 six month trips around the americas in 12 months. Last year being south america this year being central america. I am currently learning spanish which I love but after recently meeting some spainish speakers am beginning to think that my stated level of intermediate is a little generous! I love to dance, to eat, to meet new people and generally explore new places. Really enjoyed the simple things of my trip like getting a bus somewhere and just looking out of the window, as well as the more exotic like Carnivals, Merengue festivals, Mayan ruins, Pyramids etc

PHILOSOPHY

Cliche I know but life really is too short. Grab every good opportunity that comes along

Books: Used to be an avid reader but finding it difficult to focus on reading at the moment

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I saw so many things during my trip to south America here are some of the highlights: Uyuni Salt Flats in Bolivia, Tour of Silver Mines in Potosi Bolivia, Doing the Machu Picchu trail in Peru, Seeing Penguins in Ushuaia Argentina, Going to a rainy Rio Carnival -still spectacular. Tango show at Tortonis in Buenos Aires

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm keen to improve my spanish so would love to support a spanish speaker learning English also could help a complete beginner with their Spanish. Am proficient with a number of MicroSoft applications so could share those skills. Also I am a good listener and sometimes thats all we need to solve our own problems.
