I've been travelling round the world on and off for several years and I'm now settled back in London so I decided it would be fun to meet some new people in the UK and shake up my social life, so here I am!
I am also following my true passion and training to be a holistic animal healer. I know, it's a bit weird and I sound like a hippy, but I just love animals!
Sleeping in the bush in the pouring rain with just a swag and no sleeping bag, or shower, or proper loo for 3 nights!
Hiking 8km up and downhill in the blistering heat with a huge backpack in Kata Tutja - so worth it for the amazing scenery!
Walking across burning hot coals on bare feet while 3000 people chanted at me.
Making it through the Brisbane floods and the Darwin cyclone unscathed thanks to good friends.
I've been horseriding since I was 5 and I used to compete internationally. Now I just ride for fun, but I guess I'm still pretty good at it.
Alternative therapy for people and animals - I've just completed a diploma and I'm opening a practice next year.
ActIng - I'm an arty, creative type at heart and I was an actress before I became a lawyer.
(What on earth possessed me to train as a lawyer?) - this career didn't last long but I loved studying for it!)
I was once in a zombie movie.
I like to push myself to do things that scare me a little.
From a non-physical perspective, people always comment on my empathy for other people and animals.
Books: His Dark Materials Trilogy by Pullman, Carter Beats the Devil by Glen David Gold, Therese Raquin by Emile Zola, As I Lay Dying by William Faulkner, The Hotel New Hampshire - or anything by Irving, and many, many others (about to start reading Homer's The Odyssey which I'm really excited about). I love everything from philosophy to children's books.
Music: I think there are only 2 types of music, good music and bad music, so I like all genres from Opera and classical, to Rap to Dance, Pop, R&B, Reggae, Drum & Bass, Indie and even some Techno. To name a few: Massive Attack, Jeff Buckley, Bob Marley, No Doubt, Foals, Blue States, Dan Auerbach, David Bowie, Fleet Foxes, The National, Goldfrapp, RHCP, Zero 7, Royksopp, Chemical Brothers, Burial, Sigur Ros, Faithless, Elvis, Terry Callier, Puccini, Prince and The Prodigy.
Food: I love to cook and to eat! My favourite cuisines are Italian, Thai, Chinese, French, Japanese and Traditional British, so just about everything really.
TV: I don't really like television anymore (although I used to watch it a lot more). So if you're a couch potato, we wont have much in common! I might watch a wildlife documentary once in a while, (I love DAVID ATTENBOROUGH) but if I'm having a rare lazy Sunday then I'll cook a beautiful lunch and then watch a movie rather than watching TV. Except, I LOVE DEXTER. Best opening credits ever and simply a brilliant series. Oh and FAMILY GUY because it's just so irreverently naughty...and now I have to add BREAKING BAD, Sons of Anarchy and Reign to this list!
My Family and Friends
Passing my test and getting a motorbike as soon as I'm settled somewhere! :)
Metaphysics and Crystals. Yes. Really.
I also spent a little bit of time this morning thinking about how stupid the OkCupid Q&A and "personality" results are. Excuse me, okcupid, I am hugely romantic, very kind to both people and animals and my mum brought me up with the most impeccable manners!
If you love animals and like to surf, ski, play racquet sports, mess about in boats, go horseriding, visit the theatre and watch all genres of movies then that would really help! On the other hand I'm always game to learn just about anything new, so if you're passionate about something and want to share it then that would be awesome too!
In short, I'm looking for a kind, funny, passionate, rugged, deep-voiced traveller who will sing and dance with me all over the world!
