My friends describe me as honest & reliable, a good listener, easy to talk to and having a good sense of humour.
I stay fairly active and am a keen mountain biker. I find that this really allows you to take your mind off things while getting fresh air and good exercise out in the countryside. Nothing beats getting away from it all and cycling on twisty, single track trails through scenic countryside - the peace of mind you get is very purifying.
Outside of that I enjoy a wide range of activities to relax:- I like my films and music and have a huge and eclectic collection. Also enjoy walks on the beach, photography, gaming, cooking, eating out, and going out trying new things.
Also love travelling and have been lucky to have visited some amazing places – but there is so much more to see! Happy to spend a few days relaxing on a beach or by the pool with a drink, soaking up the sun – but must also spend days off out discovering the local culture, architecture and history – ideally mixed with more adventurous activities such as admiring marine life while snorkelling in the open sea, or powering through sand dunes on a quad bike.
Solving problems & fixing things
Learning new things quickly
Surprises (good ones!)
Some random items on my Sky+ box:- Game of Thrones, Elementary, The Big Bang Theory.
I have a wide taste in music too, I don't prefer any particular type - pop, indie, classic, jazz, etc. If I had to name some artists - Kaiser Chiefs, Bob Marley, The Chemical Brothers, Gorillaz, Bruno Mars, Chicane, Jools Holland, The Who, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Snow Patrol.
Currently reading a book about a sympathetic vet - I can't put it down!
Sunshine & fresh air (ideally white sand beaches)
