Just an FYI, if you want to connect along the way! Now, my profile...**
I'm an often-traveling, sustainably-minded, adventurous, outdoorsy Canadian with a mission to experience new things, learn, and tread lightly on the planet.
Since 2008 I've been in Perth, making it the third continent I've lived upon. There's no denying I'm in love with independent travel, especially in obscure countries. I love how people—from Amritsar to Zanzibar, from Arequipa to Urumqi—can be so different and yet so much alike. This world is amazing.
I grew up balancing time between a big city and the quiet wooded lakeside, and am drawn to naturally beautiful places and tranquil wilderness. I rock climb — but I've been known to climb trees (especially to get figs), public art, and buildings too. Since I love the non-motorised outdoor experience (and lived in windy Perth) I also love kitesurfing. Capturing inspiring and educational photographs is becoming a more serious passion of mine, which is even (slowly) paying for itself. I'm also passionate about living sustainably (though I'm not a feral hippie) and volunteer in various projects/campaigns to help others reduce their impact.
Things I practice but am not very good at: Walking on my hands, growing worms (in the wormbin, not my intestine), playing frisbee and guitar (not simultaneously), meditation, sailing, surfing, and spinning poi.
I'm an analytical person, and love to discuss and philosophize. My life seems to involve a lot of learning, personal development, and self-improvement. I love those who humble, inspire, laugh with/at, or teach me. And of course, people who can be silly and sarcastic – I've learned to embrace my inner-mischief while in Australia, so I hope you don't take yourself too seriously (because I don't!)
