My self-summary
A few weeks ago I went to Paris for 3 days to have some fun with a couple of friends and run a half-marathon, the first time I saw the "Metro" signs I thought, looks like the entrance to Moria, I wonder if we'll have to fight orcs, avoid traps and run from a Balrog, that'd be cool!. Sadly we were lacking in the silver-bearded-pointy-hat-wearing-wizard department so it would have been an unfair fight.

I recently tried Bikram yoga (the hot type) for the first time, I felt I really needed to learn more about the art of sweating and boy it did not disappoint. I tried to contort my body in the positions the teacher showed us, but my joints and muscles kept replying to my brain "f***k off mate, that ain't happening". Lesson learned, if you want to relax take a nap.

Hiking with friends in the Lake District we crossed a pretty stone bridge ,and I must admit I felt a bit sad that there wasn't a troll under it, another myth busted *sad face*.
What I’m doing with my life
Right now can be summed up in: working on my career ( I work in IT), getting fit, travelling and discovering new hobbies.
I’m really good at
Cooking potatoes omelette (after nods of approval from my friends, this time without recurring to blackmail I must say, I can add Beef Stew in Red Wine), watching a whole tv series season in one sitting.

The six things I could never do without
Books, to learn, escape to another world or use as doorstop.

Being out on a sunny day, sunshine is such a rare commodity in London that I almost feel guilty not to seize it when shows up.

The sense of freedom I get when riding my motorcycle up a mountain pass, not to mention the huge grin on my face after accelerating out of a hairpin, it's the closest thing to feeling like a kid again, yay

Breakfast, I have more in common with zombies than with humans until I've had something to eat and coffee.

My smartphone, it's like a second appendage, so freaking useful it makes you wonder how you lived without it, even though we did!

Pictures, of the friends and family I left in Spain and the new ones I've made in London.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Crazy trips I want to do, like replicating the journey of Ernesto 'Che' and Alberto in The Motorcycle Diaries. Or the one I'm planning to do next summer, visiting northern India and Nepal finishing at Everest base camp.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either going to the cinema or catching up with friends at a nice pub, or the classic Pizza+Beer+Film, never gets old, or maybe just some random stuff like a comedy show or prepping the iron lady for a weekend trip.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Put on some Electro Swing and I can't stop dancing....
You should message me if
You'd like to see Book of Mormon, I've been wanting to see it ever since it came out!.

You want to teach me how to inline-skate . Learning on my own is cool but don't think my bum can take many more hits.

Now that Spring is getting closer you'd like to have a nice meal and some drinks at the Founder's Arms in the Southbank, or you know of another great pub to have a good time in the sunshine.
