For many years I traveled the world for work working, but now I'm settled, earning a life as a freelancer and picking the jobs I really like. I'm somehow missing the traveling part though...
I happen to be good with small children. I have no clue why. So I tried asking them. It didn't work.
And languages, too.
I'm often told to be much less serious and shy than I first look, once people get to know me.
As they come to mind:
JL Borges, García-Marquez, the Marx Brothers, the Monty Python, most BBC documentaries, japanese/basque/mediterranean/peruvian food, The Beatles, JS Bach, Eddie Izzard, Ricky Gervais, Calamaro, Battiato, Foo Fighters, Wilco, Jean Michel Jarre, Jimmy Smith, Daft Punk, Johnny Cash, Jorge Drexler, Miles Davis, ...
I lack the time for watching TV series. So I prefer miniseries or old ones, where I know beforehand the number of seasons.
Lately I tend to listen to the Jazz24 online station while working. I've discovered it's the only type of music that helps me concentrating.
An Internet connection
Something interesting to read
Working out from time to time
Good food, especially pintxos from my Basque Country!
My family & friends
Otherwise, I might be ... watching an obscure russian animation child film from the 70's featuring a hedgehog, or ... reading a webpage about flying cars, spaceships, time-machines and whatnot, or ... cooking with a friend, or going to the movies, or ...
You don't make the common mistake of being too easy.
As for your nationality, who cares. The more exotic, the better; I always find amusing to hear the opinions of foreigners about other cultures.
Y si hablas castellano, también ;-)
