My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Disclaimer: This user has very little interest in dating. Doubly so, since he is wandering around the world, living on the cheap. I will update my location when I stop wandering to refill my wallet, likely by teaching ESL but I'm open to new experiences. I feel there's no sense in meeting someone making a strong physical and emotional bond only to wander off in completely different directions the next morning. But at the same time, I enjoy meeting new people so if you want me to wait up for you somewhere and you can write an email and or profile that captures my heart and imagination, be my guest, you never know what I might do.

But since truth is often funnier than fiction I'm pulling the madness I've had in this space for years, extreme curling and golf-what nonsense and replace it with a simple story of what I've done in the last couple of years.

In October 2007 I went to Australia to complete my bicycle racer/ I wanna be the best drug free athlete I can be odyssey and embark upon a walk about to see the world. 4 countries and a somewhat notable sporting achievement later I was was feelings a bit broke so on the suggestion of a Vietnamese guesthouse owner I got a job teaching english in HCMC VietNam. I was doing really well,new watch, new cellphone (after drowning my first cell), new computer, a couple of new cameras, a 40$ bicycle- great quality but atleast as old as me- a 6$/night room and a small family run guest house in Pham Ngu Lao and plans to leave with about 7000$ in pocket. In the beginning of 2009 I was told to come home because one of my favourite family members was dying. Another had died quite unexpectedly 3 months before... but I was not expected to return home for that. This was followed with the passing of that relative and 13 months of helping my relatives piece their lives back together after the catastrophies that had befallen them... and mooching off (and doing odd jobs, mostly home renovation for $$ and free food and shelter) for the wealthier more fortunate relatives around. And visiting some friends. Alot of profiles say friends and family are top priority, in my case I have a story that proves it. Anyways I hate mooching and I'm not so big on the GTA. I've got about the same amount of money in the travel fund as I did when I landed, so it is time to go back to where I left off my life... of english teaching, touring and riding bicycle.

Not in to dating... let me try explain this one. Your better off contacting me first because I only send off 1 or 2 first contact emails a year, but to be honest I don't get inspired by most of the profiles and pictures I see. I When I do send an email it to someone, wanting to meet them, they are a free traveler or a bike minded lady. Once in a couple blue moons I've been known to send an email not interested at all in dating but just to complement a creative profile. I rarely date as I'm usually concerned with more pressing life goals, things like racing bicycles, finishing touring the world so I can contently settle down to a normal life be for I'm too old . I don't see much point in introducing myself to someone when I'm planning to move on and move along in a couple months
(unless they're able to come with me), which for me is almost all the time I've moved 11 times in 5 years and spent 25 months just traveling. But I do know how rare it is to meet a special person and this is a rather low effort avenue to attracting or finding that special person. Not to mention it's somewhat amusing seeing what people will say about themselves and thinking of silly stuff to say here. So I leave my profile here for your amusement and I'll be checking profiles and doing silly tests. It's not that I'm closed to the idea of meeting someone to share a life of fun, adventure, family and whatnot. It's just that seeing the world is more important to me right now. If I met someone who wows me like winning my first race on the track I might have to stop the madness that has become my world tour but I'd prefer if she joined it.

Eh bon, je viens de decider d'ecrire quelquechose en francais. Comme tu vu es je manques tous les accents parce-que je utilise un clavier anglais. Le Francais est mon deuxieme langue et je suis vraiment plus expressionant et impressionant en englais. Mais j'essayer a dire quelquechose enfrancais... just pour toutes les belle filles francophone qui sont ici et qui lissent mon profile. Tu as de la chance tu as trouve un homme polyvalent, aventureux, gentil, independant et actif avec un beau sourire. A+

I am ingenious, thrill seeking, and unique
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
these days I'm touring the world on a bicycle- Europe to be more specific. In the last 20 months I've come across quite a few families doing some fairly extreme travelling with some little people- a two year old girl on the back of daddy's tandem, a five year old girl hiking up to EBC with here dad, a 6 year old boy cycling down the Danube with his parents. read about a few more in a book of travel blogs a friend had. This has re-opened my mind to dating... I can visualize it I see a beautiful woman, I greet her, introduce myself the say "hey beautiful do you want to travel the world with me..." and her eyes light up, then I say "on bicycle and she runs away." If she doesn't I could be in trouble.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
lots of things but most notably racing bicycles on ovals, taking cool pictures, going on crazy adventures. Maybe listening to a very ecclectic but good collection of music....After VietNam I can say I was a good Esl teacher. Actually come to think of it I did a good job at most of my jobs... Maybe I'm a good worker. More stuff that I'm good at(with no explaination): Taking things apart, mountain biking, fixing things, playing with children, inappropriately using related sporting equipment for the activity of the moment, bringing out the lively playful side of children, cooking comfort food, giving massages, driving all day, making suggestions to improve sports performance.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
"cinnamon and sugary and softly spoken lies you never know how you look through other peoples' eyes"-tbs
I think one of the first things people notice about me is I'm not racially one of their kind. Most everyone I meet eventually asks about my background to which I usually tell them to guess and I've heard it all: south american (Brazil, chile, Argentina), native Canadian, korean, european, vietnamese, chinese, japanese, malaysian, Napali....

ah j'ai l'air d'un..... taba... Je ne sais pas donc vas voir mes photo et tu peux decider.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
A) I don't read much but I really enjoyed; the road to mars, hitchhikers guide to the galaxy, animal farm, l'estranger, La Chute, 1984, the hobbit, the lord of the rings and tom sawyer. I'm finished reading art and the zen of motorcycle maintenance.- it was good.
B) most movies are good.... But these come to mind as exceptional: Star wars, lord of the rings, the matrix, over the hedge, fight club, the gods must be crazy, cars, and anything involving the Monty python guys.
C)all music is good music... if i don't like some music it's only that I haven't yet developed an appreciation of it. Sadly I haven't bought any music recently but I did rip some Morecheeba, Tangerine dream, Nas, Gorillaz, Astrud Gilberto, the nothern pikes, de la soul, vilian pengouin from some of my friends.
D) Um I'm on a see food diet... generally if I see food I eat it.. now that would make most people look like a whale but I also do more than my share of exercise and adventure and my body seems to consume an insane amounts of energy for what I do. That being said i do have a bit of an aversion to eating animals with the skeleton on the outside (I generally don't like the texture of their meat or the taste-yes I have tried them I am not Sam I am), I'm not big on having a lot of mushrooms but a small smattering once in awhile is OK and I don't like eating organs I prefer to stick to eating skeletal muscle. There are two western vegetables I don't like- brussel sprouts and lima beans and Fu gua (asian bitter melon)is on the same list. Everything else goes.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1)my collection of vehicles... a wee little sports car (miata). I like to have a Smally truck to complement the sports car but currently don't possess one. And a bunch of bicycles: single speed mountain bike, a classic collectors mountain bike, a road racing bike, a cyclo-cross bike, a broken track bike and a track bike in Hobart Austalia(made it home 2.5 years after I last raced on it- months after I returned to asia to continue my tour of the world) and a wet weather commuting bike. And my super asia touring bike which is with me as I ride around Asia and back to Canada. I now know I don't need all my vehicles but I do like it alot. And I can survive a week or two without renting and riding a bike. But I definitely prefer the freedom of mobility of having a bicycle over having to walk and used public transport. Motor vehicles are fun but I can definitely survive without them.

2) Music...

3) My laptop. it is my main entertainment/communication device. I use it to listed to listen to music, watch videos, communicate (email, skype, instant message), and store and edit my pictures.

4) my digital cameras. I go on lots of crazy adventures, travels and see lots of crazy things that I'd like to share with the people I know. My beloved digital camera makes it possible...cause sadly most people I know won't join me on my adventures

5) my healthy body....

6) oh and of course good food to fuel my body for all my adventures

1) mes chars et mes bicyclettes
2) la musique
3) mon petit ordi portif
4) mon appereil numerique
5) mon corp avec son sante
6) la nouritture

1) toi xe dap cong toi xe oto - obviously my vietnamese needs alot of work
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
about my next adventure- racing and traveling the world and other future plans... What sort of job or business I'm going to get into when I get back.. if I get back.. and occasionally how nice it'd be if I had some adventurous girl who'd join me for a lifetime of adventure which is what probably brought me here.

Less often, less personal and on a more global scale I think about how most of us are all detached from our children, our food, our transportations and our environment... and how one might combat this to make the world a better place.

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I get off my bicycle at 8 or 9 at night, tune in to a local fm radio station on my cell phone, cook myself a cheap dinner on my camping stove and set up my tent eat dinner and go to sleep.... actually that could be any night... most nights.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
At 34 years of age I signed a contract to teach a full year at a private high-school in HCMC VietNam. This initially bother me quite a bit as I only wanted to work 3-6 months. But after a day or two i got really excited because I realized that I've never worked a full year at a full time job in my life. but in the end I ended up working part-time at chain of language schools owned by the same company because I had problems getting my transcript and degree from my parents back in Canada. Then I only worked for 9 months because of a tragedy in my family. I guess that sort of working thing will have to wait, I'm sure that is no big loss.

Yo vivi con corredores de bicicletas de Argentina. Y, me llamen Picante

Lorsque J'etais jeune et fou. En Ete J'ai course des velos et en hiver J'ai travaille a la station du ski alpin. Cette station du ski etais pres des Etats Unis et Ontario donc des Anglophones viennent souvent.

Et le patron a demande a moi si je coise en Dieu, Allah, Buddah. J'ai dis non, non, non. Puis il a demande moi a quoi je croise. je me reflechis sur cette problem pour 3 minute et j'ai dis a lui que je croise en moi.

Donc quand j'avais 19 ans j'etais dieu pour deux semaines et dupuis ce n'est pas si bon.
