My self-summary
Hi I'm Nick!

I'm from New Zealand but been in London for around three years. Was meant to only stay here for about 6 months but I loved the fact I could get vitamin d deficiency from a lack of sunlight so I have stayed on longer than expected (there is a real story behind this - ask me if you want to find out!). I am lucky enough to have three passports (none of which are British). If you can guess them all on the first go you will definitely have my attention (One is obvious, the other two slightly obscure).

I love travelling, the outdoors, movies, and most sports. Did a big stint travelling in South America for 5 months (worked in an orphanage in Bolivia) and now settled in London working in commercial finance in a media company. I try to get out of London on at least a City break once a month - just recently got back from a Safari in South Africa.

I'm adventurous and spontaneous and my thing at the moment is booking a flight for the weekend on a friday morning to leave on the Friday night. Last time ended up in Hamburg and met some awesome people out there! Can't beat Skyscanner. In saying that though I also enjoy living in London and spending time with friends, going to a market or going to a new bar somewhere.
What I’m doing with my life
At the moment I'm kind of just winging it. Quite happy at the moment not to be settled down too much and just taking life as it comes. This does not amuse my parents very much.
I’m really good at
Losing my oyster card and/or my keys. I swear I don't know how this keeps happening!
The first things people usually notice about me
My accent. Though someone told me I've started sounding British, not sure how to take that!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Movies: Anything Quentin Tarantino, Christopher Nolan, or Martin Scorcese related. I think the scene in the downstairs bar in Inglorious Basterds is pure genius, one of the most underrated and epic scenes in movie history. My favourite all time movie is a German movie called Run Lola Run.

Food: Indian, Thai, Japanese, and Middle Eastern. Best part of London is being able to find decent food joints where I can get these.

Books: I go through phases, at the moment been reading a lot of biographies. At the moment reading Scar Tissue by Anthony Kiedis.

Music: Pretty eclectic, range from EDM to indie rock. Some of the best live acts I have seen recently were The XX, Rolling Stones, Of Monsters and Men, Steve Aoki, Shapeshifter (a kiwi band, look them up), The Killers, Bastille, Sam Smith, Rudimental, and Disclosure.
The six things I could never do without
Avocado and Cheese
Weekend football
Passport
My gopro
My bike
Skyscanner
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My next trip (either a weekend away or a more long term one).

What I should eat next.

Whether or not I turned the stove off from cooking the previous night (I'm not kidding)

Hoping Brexit doesn't happen or I would get kicked out of the country.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out with friends or chilling out at home (depends on how the week was and how close payday is)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I was in the school choir when I was 9, didn't know at the time but I think in hindsight this was social suicide. At the time thought it was the best way to have an extended lunch time!

I once met Keira Knightley and trying to impress her I told her she was good in The Notebook (a movie I haven't seen and one she is apparently not in). It was awkward.

I also think the concept of One Direction is genius and I wish I came up with it.
You should message me if
You're a girl who can't dance and has two left feet.

If it turns out you can swing some moves on the d floor thats fine too - so long as you're funny, interesting, low maintenance and enjoy doing new things.
