So, here goes...laid back, enjoy a laugh, have been known to enjoy one or two social beverages. An optimist yet manage to balance this with a healthy dose of realism and good old British cynicism as well (not sure how that works either).
Enjoy trying new things as life's too short but think that's something that you have to realise for yourself rather than for someone to tell you.
Like surfing, running and keeping fit. I've started learning to play the guitar...badly. Tend to try and have a few holidays a year (city breaks) so I can tick them off the bucket list.
In July I'm driving 10,000 miles to Mongolia, as you do!
Food - Not sure there's anything I don't like but will let you know when I find it [oysters = sea snot].
Book wise - prefer fiction (Golden Compass, Lord of the Rings, Neil Gaiman books) and also trying to get through some of the classics as well. Did not expect to but did enjoy crime and punishment.
