Here is a quote that I live by:
"The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars." Jack Kerouac
I have traveled so extensively and have met so many interesting people along the way that I'm filled with stories. My friends are awesome and love to hear the stories but it's always nice to create and share more stories with that one person who means the most.
My parents are still married after 43 years and despite normal marriage complications they are still very much in love so I was taught that love conquers all as long as you know that love does NOT conquer all. If you understand what that means, we would get along. It may sound cheesy I guess, but I'm really looking to find someone with the strength, independence and ambition of joan of ark. I'm really just looking for someone I can share triumphs with and be my best friend.
I am always looking for new ways to educate myself about the world and I love languages, film, strange food and traveling. I'm socially responsible, and with every day that goes by I realize how little I know and the more it excites me to keep learning more and more and inhaling life, with all the good and bad that comes with it.
I'd like someone to explore with and be fascinated and inspired by. Someone who can inspire me will have my total respect and love. I love being outdoors as often as possible and scuba dive, rock climb, ice climb, kayak, and I just got my very first sailing permit. I sail as often as I can and need someone to crew on these capris I'm on so I take friends often.
I speak Spanish and Portuguese and I have lived in Spain, Chile, Colombia and Brazil. I've been a work-aholic for a long time because I love the work I do but now that I have finally built something, it's finally nice to share it with someone who actually lives in this country but preferably with someone who is multilingual or has traveled beyond just normal tourism to actually get to know the people and places they have visited and someone who wants to someday show their kids all the amazing people, foods, music, dance, clothing, and life in general that the many cultures of the world has to offer.
