My self-summary
My name is Sam and I'm a primary school teacher.
I've just booked a one way ticket to Costa Rica in September 2014 with the intention of travelling Central America, practising Spanish and writing a book.
So... I guess I'm looking for someone who is up for some adventures and fun, who will be okay with the fact I'm going away, and will enjoy atypical dates which don't involve a lot of money (after booking my tickets I'm now in saving mode). I love outdoor adventures and like to try things that take me out of my comfort zone, but at the same time you can't beat a good take away and a movie.

I'm extremely passionate about music and am always keen on listening to new artists. I love checking out open mic nights and going to see bands at gigs and festivals. I'm a keen runner but I only do it for fun and to keep fit. Travelling is a big passion of mine, I've already had lots of incredible experiences but am always after more.
I'm very sociable and love meeting new people. I make a mean seafood risotto and homemade bruschetta, so if you like eating then I'm sure we'll get along. I suck at making desserts.
What I’m doing with my life
Teaching, socialising, running, writing music, planning my adventure, cooking, eating, drinking, showering... the list goes on.
I’m really good at
Dancing with lots of enthusiasm and no sense of embarrassment.
Contemplating life and why people behave the way they do.
Writing alternative endings to films.
I'm actually good at lots of things but you'll have to find out what.
The first things people usually notice about me
My cheeky smile, nose ring, tattoos and lack of hair.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
This could be an extensive list but here's an abridged version:
Family Happiness - Leo Tolstoy
Captain Correlli's Mandolin - Louis de Bernieres
Human Traces - Sebastian Faulks
Less than Zero - Bret Easton Ellis
The Shock Doctrine - Naomi Klein

The Dark Knight
Before Sunrise and Before Sunset
Waking Life

Music (this is always changing):
Lucy Rose, Laura Marling, Bear's Den, Bright Eyes,

Foo fighters have to be my all time favourite more for the memories than the latest music,
Motion city Sountrack, Jimmy Eat World,
Six things I could never do without
My guitar
Interesting conversation/witty banter
A pen...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What my next adventure should be...
The holy trinity (sex, drugs and rock n' roll)
If the Pope really does shit in the woods?
On a typical Friday night I am
Rocking out at Satan's
Attending a dinner party which ultimately ends in shots and all round debauchery,
Or having a cheeky smoke and a laugh with some good friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm not really a private person, I like to think I can be mysterious but after a couple of drinks I'll probably tell you all my embarrassing secrets.
You should message me if
You're up for having a laugh and you don't take yourself too seriously.
The two of us
