I know that my life is small on a global scale and so I am determined to make the most of it for myself, family, friends and fellow inhabitants! For instance, my preferred travel is to go somewhere new and spend some time soaking up the culture but I need a purpose also while I'm there. For instance my recent trip to Chile/Argentina involved Spanish study and volunteering in a Chilean orphanage.
I definitely want to travel more and continue to work on the Spanish as I refuse to accept that English speakers should be understood worldwide with little or no effort to attempt another language. I find educational systems abroad interesting and love to compare cultures, systems, food, lifestyles through travel and language exchange.
I enjoy spending time with friends who can laugh at me and themselves, look at the positives in a situation, treat all people fairly and as people , feel comfortable seeking and sharing advice, sharing life experiences but also being able to engage in conversations about politics , travel, life with in a manner which is open to evolve previous thinking through questioning and discussion.
Any worthwhile friendship or relationship has to be mutually beneficial and, at the centre of it all, should add to both people's happiness levels by being themselves. I value honesty, respect, openness, humour and kind acts which are positive for both parties, not burdensome.
