I like to travel a lot and have been to 15+ countries and countless states in US. My dream vacation would be to go visit Egypt. I am fascinated by history, different cultures. There is so much to learn and absorb from people from all over the world.
I have a good sense of humor (or so my friends tell me). I like to read a lot. My favorite author is Richard Bach, his book "Illusions" is quite amazing. I love sports. I used to play tennis quite a bit before my knee started hurting.
I realize that most of my pictures are while hiking and traveling. I do love to be lazy and just chill out too. I do try to go for a hike once a week though, its like meditation for me. There are days when I just dont want to do anything just like there are days when I want to go climb mountains (summer time !).
I am very comfortable with where I am in my life; in terms of my career, my interests, my friends and I am looking to meet a special someone to share all of life's many wonderful and not so wonderful experiences.
I believe that communication, mutual respect and hard work are the keys to a long lasting relationship. Looks fade away eventually and even if they dont purely physical attraction is not enough to keep two people together. So, hopefully you liked and share a lot of the same values as me :).
My family is very important to me and I want to meet someone who feels the same way about theirs.
Ask me about :)
* my year off from work

In my free time I love to travel, read, hike, camp and try to capture the beauty of the world around us.

How we have so many ways to communicate with each other yet we seem to be getting more and more isolated as a society.
My next hike / travel destination

Inequality in the world : having grown up in a different country I can appreciate how lucky we are to live in a 1st world country. It's crazy that in the 21st century we have wars going on. With all the progress mankind has made you'd think (hope) wars were relegated to history books but sadly that is not the case.
Early retirement / simple living, maybe something like these guys : http://www.gocurrycracker.com/twice-as-much-money-wont-make-us-twice-as-happy/
Oh right, I have bad memory !!
- you like being affectionate
- you are outdoorsy and a little adventurous
- you want to go on fun adventures with me all over the world.
- not looking to keep up with the Jonses constantly. I believe in "Simple living and higher thinking" and collecting experiences over things.
- you are not looking for the perfect guy.
- you are financially responsible (like me :) )
