About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Just signed on 10 minutes ago so my current mission is to fill the blank spaces in between. . . .

ABOUT ME

All about me?? Sjoe that's a tall order. For now, let's just say I love what I do for a living, enjoy traveling alot( huge understatement), always keen to meet interesting and genuine individuals - anything from around the corner to the middle of the south Pacific (my 2 sec attempt at figuring out what's exactly the other side of the world from me)and love the great outdoors.

PHILOSOPHY

Generally live by the observation this one life is way too short to live in only one place, do only one thing for a living, have unchanging points of view & reference and continue living shackled in a box, under a rock in the shadow of a bigger rock in the middle of Nowhere!(viz Ayre's Rock)

Do what you love with whom you love.
Question, discover and rediscover.
Create, Assimilate and innovate.
Travel. Get Lost! go road-tripping. . .
Live your dream and share your passion!

One Amazing Thing I've Done

To date, my single most amazing experience was in a safari vehicle on the side of a hilltop clearing, stationary, and being caught in the middle of the afternoon migration of a 200+ strong herd of elephant - Breathtakingly awesome!

Teach, Learn, Share

Not sure if I'm qualified enough to teach anything but probably can help teach English to beginners in the language, the basics of golf. . .( I dunno, feel rather inadequate all of a sudden.

Would like to learn another language (Spanish or Portuguese), play guitar better, learn the art of wood-turning. .. . too many on an expanding list of to-do's

Always keen to share travel stories, good food, lots of laughs and off course ideas, opinions and perspectives to change the world. .
