My self-summary
Been there, done that, got the T-shirt, now looking for something real.

I know how to enjoy a moment, be it diving into incoming wave, standing on top of a mountain right before polling off, entering an embrace for a swirl around a dance floor, getting on a plane to go somewhere, or sitting on a lawn listening to live music. I’m always interested in trying something new.

I have an inspiring job which keeps me occupied. I own my dwelling and enjoy "porch" gardening. I have gotten into tango, swing and salsa. Now, I just need a partner :)

I am optimistic, passionate, spontaneous and romantic. I live life without regrets, and I know what I want.
What I’m doing with my life
Traveling & dancing; trying to get some work done in between.
I’m really good at
Losing myself in a moment. Massages, I've been told.
The first things people usually notice about me
My positive energy
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I enjoy reading various genres -- from Herman Hesse & Kurt Vonnegut, to Clive Cussler, Laurel Hamilton, via Tolkien and Sanderson.

Movies... depending on the mood, I might go for most anything by Mel Brooks to something like Lock Stock and two Smoking Barrels. All time favorites include (in no particular order) "Scent of a Woman", "Chocolat", "The Graduate", "Devil's Advocate", LOTR, all of old James Bond, "Animal House", "How to Steal a Million", "Indiana Jones", "Wag the Dog", "Saving Grace", "Some like it hot", "History of the World, Part I", "Blazing saddles", "Spaceballs".

Music... Classical, rock, blues, jazz, tango (both classical and neo), most anything but rap, well... maybe even rap sometimes. :)

Food... sushi, ethiopian, vietnamese, and I enjoy trying new things.
The six things I could never do without
(in no particular order) --
Nook, new destination, swimming hole, friends & family, tea, sunlight
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where I would like to be in near, and not so near future.

Where I'd like to travel next. Weirdly enough, since I decided that my next destination should be Greece (islands), I ended up in Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, Israel, Jordan, Russia, Iceland, Fiji and Caymans, South of Spain. Heading to Belize in April. Still hoping to make it to Greek islands, though.
On a typical Friday night I am
always a mystery
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm not 100% sure whether or not I own an iron.

Update: it turns out that I do! Still haven't bothered to use it :)
You should message me if
- you're not looking for a running buddy
- you like to dance, or are willing to learn
- you have a bug up your ass and always need to be going somewhere
