I love to travel and see the world, but my heart will always be in the mountains; climbing, skiing, hiking, alpine adventures, anything at all will do. However, if you were to ring me up and say "hey, want to come to outer Mongolia to watch migration patterns of local ponies", then I'm there in a flash.
All I know is that it'll be really interesting!
As a side-gig I'm running my own home-catering affair; hire me to cook whatever you like in your own home kitchen! There's no end to how much I love cooking; the joy of sitting down with friends to a good meal, the sound of a good steak hitting sizzling butter, the crunch of new-season peas, stews in the winter when the weather's all gone to pieces, a big bowl of summer cherries so ripe you can just see the taste ...
Planning new hikes, new places to see, and new places to set up my tent.
Remembering the plots of movies and shows I've seen, I have no idea why, it's not a skill that helps anything.
Also, cooking, mostly french and italian, though I love indian and turkish/moroccan too. Going to the market is a treat :)
