My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm NYC for ten days from 9th October. Was supposed to be coming for a ten day holiday with a friend who has now dropped out..leaving me on my own.

So if anyone wants to take pity on me, is curious to hear a very posh English accent, or is just plain bored - it would be cool to meet people who can show me something of New York... cafes, bars, museums, music, sporting events. In return I promise to provide some very dry British humour, and anecdotes from my life in the Middle East.

I alternate between taking life too seriously and not seriously at all.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Sunshine, tennis, tea, the gym, my passport, an underlying sense of self doubt
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Whatever happened to my cat Balzac.. Planning my trip going overland from Turkey to Iran and Central Asia. This needs some serious thinking.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out and about in Gaziantep. Living the dream.
