Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm an Aussie girl who loves adventure and travel. I haven't
stopped travelling and I probably never will. But for now, and the
next few years, Cape Town is home. I moved from London a few years
ago and I am loving the change in lifestyle. Back to how it should
be. Outdoors, sunshine, exercise, good wine, fresh air. I am still
in awe of the mountain everyday I drive to work and I get excited
about when I am next climbing up part of it.
I've lived in many places in OZ, Japan, Europe, Uganda and now SA.
The best and the worst thing about living in new places is meeting
new people . I hate saying 'goodbye', but I know it is always 'see
you again'. The experiences you share is something money can't buy.
My friends mean the world to me and I love the fact that
relationships that are strong last the test of time.
I am happiest when I am enjoying the outdoors, whether I am
running, walking, cycling, climbing or just sitting with a glass of
wine enjoying the view. And all of these things are better when I
have people to enjoy them with...well maybe not running, that is
one of my solitude times. Music on and I escape into my own world
for the next hour.
I'm very passionate about my research and I put a lot of my heart
and soul into it. I work on something I truly care about and I am
thankful for the opportunities which have allowed my to travel so
much and now which have brought me to Cape Town.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I keep busy at work as a research scientist working on tuberculosis
and HIV. And when I get to escape the lab, I love nothing more than
to play Ultimate Frisbee with my team mates. I got into ultimate
about 8yrs ago and since then I have become more and more addicted.
I even played for Australia at the World Beach and World Grass
Championships, and for South Africa last year at the World Club
Champs. They were one of the most memorable and intense times of my
life. There is nothing more special than representing your country,
even if it is in a sport no one really knows about ;)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Chasing down a frisbee.....And cooking my favourite aubergine
chocolate cake. Cooking is one of my loves and I love having people
over to share a meal with. I love sitting around a good meal having
great conversations with a big bunch of people.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Hmm, I wonder, maybe my smile? But on a personality level,
hopefully that I am very warm, friendly and approachable. I like to
make people feel comfortable in new situations.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Where to start with likes; let's go backwards.... Food! I love
food. All foods, but mainly healthy fresh foods as they taste so
much better. Quinoa is my food of the year, you can't get anything
better. I love sushi and all Japanese food as it reminds me of my
host mothers. Italain and Spanish food, as they have the best
lifestyle and I would love to live in either country at one
Music: all but rock/metal. Give me rhythm and beats, whether it's
DnB, House, Jazz, Soul, Folk, anything I can move to or that moves
me. I'm highly mood dependant but nearly always have it on.
Movies: Comedies with black humour, Foreign films, I love
Almodovar, Miyazaki Amine. Plus a random assortment: Dirty Dancing,
Goonies, Fight Club, The Last Samurai, Love Actually, Bridget
Jones, The Power of One. Gosh so many how to fit them here....
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Yogurt+Muesli to start my day
Coffee to help with my day
My eyes, I love admiring the world around me
Skype to call my family
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How the bacteria which causes tuberculosis evades the human immune
system so well and how vitamin D can help the immune system fight
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Meeting up with friends after work discussing where to head to
next. Often Clifton for sundowners, just relaxing after the week
and excited for weekend adventures.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm not new to internet dating ;)
