I've traveled in the past and don't plan to stop until I've visited every continent. I have a crazy plan to drive around the world but it may never materialize. I've been to Europe several times and I used to live in Japan. I love it there and go back periodically. I still speak a bit of Japanese and I can speak French quite well. I've lived in Victoria most of my life and love it here. Nothing beats the scenery here and love being able to keep active outdoors year round.
I value traditional and classic things - I'm a geek for old houses, film photography, reading the classics (who knew Dickens was so funny?), playing board games and letter writing. I have a tv but no cable, its only for movies. I barbeque in any climate, enjoy cooking and baking. One of my biggest passions is furniture making and I hope to make that a full time job one day; I even have a sensible plan to take me there. I don't have any pets of my own but I love animals.
