Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I hail from a Mediterranean country, so despite having lived here
for 10 years, I'm still more expressive of my thoughts and feelings
than is the norm for England. I still like to say what I think as
it is, which I admit, is not always the best thing to do. This

had more time on my hands I was a bit of a culture vulture. I love
travelling to new places, and sometimes over and over to the same
old places (Istanbul and Paris I love). Sarajevo is another
favourite city of mine, though I have only been there once.

love having conversations with people I can share ideas and
experiences with and learn something from.
What I value most in others is decency, honesty and kindness. I
believe in treating others the way you would like to be
I am looking to meet people who are open and intelligent with the
same values, similar interests, and a bit of dry humour wouldn't

to do, great places to go, and delicious food to eat.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
We can all do without loads if we have to, so here are the things I
love : sunshine, Hampstead Heath, strolling in the streets of
London enjoying the architecture, lazy brunches out on weekends,
going to exhibitions, Istanbul, laughing with friends, stimulating
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Everything but sports or new age stuff.
