My self-summary
Life without challenges is boring, so every year I set both a mind and body goal - Mens sana in corpore sano, said a Roman once - I like to feed my mind constantly with fantasy, philosophy, history, science and travel, my legs with long runs, my soul with experiences….. and my cups with strong Belgian beer or good whiskey.

Loyal, honest, open minded, punctual, persistent, determined, and totally….. wrong…. what the hell are you doing mate it’s the other way around! - sush! you let me do it - CRAAACK!!! - right *gives me an annoyed look* I’m calling road assistance now. Are all ways in which I have been described.

I believe in people's potential not in what they have, or where they are at now. However, potential is only realised though hard work, hence perseverance at improving oneself is key, so challenge me to be a better person and I'll challenge you in return, deal?.

What am I looking for?. Well, what I want is a friend, lover and confidant, a peer, an equal with similar values who will make me feel like I'm home, someone to look in their eyes after the roller coaster of life has called its last run and say in unison “what a ride!, let’s do it again!”.
What I’m doing with my life
Right now can be summed up in: working on my career ( I work in IT), staying in good shape, 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.
