I am a contemplative soul who can’t sit still, I aim to enjoy every second of my life, whether it is the exciting new activities that I try, or taking a moment to enjoy the comfort of a well loved hobby.
I ride horses, as often as I can, and that has made me enjoy being outdoors a lot more than I liked when I was younger. I love cycling in the nature park that's just down the road; although it annoys my friends and family that I have fun in the challenge of tackling all the hills in a higher gear. (Some people call it stubbornness, so I suppose I can be obstinate sometimes too.)
I love to have a good time, which is usually those days when I can just come home and curl up on the couch with a book or a movie. I'm willing to go out more, but it has to be with the right person.
My parents, brother and I moved to Canada from South Africa when I was a teenager; so they are all very important to me; as are the opportunities I would have missed if we hadn't made the move. I was upset at first, obviously; as a teenager, I wasn't fond of change but I was forced to adapt, and the move taught me an important lesson: To give new things a chance.
