I think one of my main characteristics is probably curiosity (and a passion for knowledge and learning) and I love to meet people that trigger my curiosity, people that inspire me. Actually I think mutual inspiration (on whichever field) is one important ingredient for friendships and relationships alike. As is tolerance and a truly open mind.
I like sports (swimming, fencing, mountaineering, sailing, skiing, running, cycling, hiking) and being outdoors in general. I wish I would spend more time with photography or take up playing the violin again but somehow life is too busy for that at the moment.
(and like most other people I do of course like to spend time with friends or enjoy good food...;) )
Reading through what I just wrote, I am not so sure, if that is a good representation of myself, so why don't you just drop me a line to find out.
Sometimes I feel that I am good at telling the important things from the unimportant ones. But then again, eventually I will end up surfing the internet an entire evening, which casts a shadow of doubt over that statement...
