My friends would probably describe me as often contradictory and surprising. I probably don't tell you very much on first glance about who I am and what I like, as I'm pretty private and also like to surprise. :-).
I'd describe myself as an introvert (who works in a people focussed job), who loves the wide open (and empty) places. Would love to meet that special (quirky) someone, who helps to inspire, encourage and share – and me them.
Other than that, I like to bake, walk, read, a bit of photography, trying (and normally failing) to learn Russian and generally disappearing down rabbit holes on the internet.
Also spend too much time dreaming of my next adventure... places that don't normally feature on the 'normal' bucketlists, and love swapping tips and recommendations about journeys. Central Asia is my dream if that helps.
Isn't that enough?
I'm pretty tall I guess...
And yes, that is my natural hair colour. And I have never been a goth.
Movies: favourites are: L'Appartement, Deathnote, Goodbye Lenin and my absolute favourite is It's a Wonderful Life. Watched it for the first time when I was 6 and have watched it every year since.
Shows: The Returned (although what happened with the second series??), Game of Thrones, QI and.... Neighbours! Honestly, I watch it before bed everyday.
Music: no one comes near my ipod... I have a thing for pop music not in English, although I do have some indie on there too.
Food: I'm very fussy about some things, but love food... Am a bit of a carb freak: can't imagine life without pasta, bread and (particularly) potatoes – what a dull world it was before potatoes! Hate shellfish – and most fish really. Love fruit: hate most vegetables. Love egg yolks: hate egg whites (except in meringues). Love blue cheese when melted: hate it cold. It's a bit like that... :-p. Have a bit of a sweet tooth. Love chickpeas – food of the gods! Sour cherries: best things ever – why on earth can I not buy them in any shops?
Tweezers (great for those occasions where you may walk into a cactus)
And my smartphone... I would be lost without it.
If you think we have something in common...
If you love cake...
But most importantly, if you are just a really nice guy, who is smart and curious about the world, and think you can just ignite that spark in me (and me you!).
And lastly if you speak Russian... not only would it be helpful, but I find it incredibly sexy! :-)
