I like jogging, swimming and hiking.
I have done quite some half-marathons before moving to Vancouver. But I haven't done it very often now since Vancouver rains too often.
Though I like the sea a lot (who doesn't like a relaxing afternoon at the beach?), I mostly swim in the pool, that's probably because of a traumatic experience - the only one time I swam in the sea I almost felt sea-sick by the big waves throwing me up and down.
Recently I have picked up martial arts training. It's not just about fighting but is multi-disciplinary that requires physical fitness, skills, strategy, and psychological and mental stability. If you see a crazy guy practicing punches and kicks while waiting for bus, very likely that's me.
I am extremely poor with most sorts of sports that requires a ball and a racket. But I'll be glad to play if you don't mind my poor skills :P
To my amazement, I found my lack cooking skills improving. Though most of the times when I cook for myself, I will rather cook faster than cook great.
I always want to improve my french. I'd be so glad if you could teach me or practice with me.
Or I will give you a hint "Lifelong learning"
I am no elite athlete but am probably fitter than most average person thanks to my martial arts training.
I also love photography (with my old but still great 550D and Diana).
And I like nature and science in general. I relates me as a human to the world.
