I love traveling (backpacking) around the world and outdoor sports (hiking, camping, kayaking..). I like older kinds of music like jazz and blues but also Ska and rock recently I got into electro-swing. I love backpacking and spend almost all my vacation days someplace else.
I would say I am an easy going person (for an engineer) and flexible due to life. I am definitely introverted and a realist (Definitely not an optimist but not quite a pessimist). I am a straightforward person so I am easy to get along with or to hate. I also love to tease people and to just say silly things for interesting facial expressions. At the same time I know what I want in life.
I realized I am a bit strange because of my musical taste I do not like going out to clubs and also I do not enjoy getting drunk. I wonder what my friends see in me but it must be something :)

Learning how to play the Harmonica.
I am trying to swim in as many natural bodies of water as possible (regardless of temperature).
I am also trying to get a haircut in every country I visit.
-Getting around new towns without a map.
-It seems I am quite good at gardening.
-I think and so many others that I am a good in the kitchen and I like to cook with others ;)
-I think I am quite a good engineer.
Books (another common activity): Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy, Asimov... basically a lot of sci fi books but also some fantasy like Terry Pratchett's and Jack Whyte's books. I read mostly for fun and relaxation. I also read books about travel and cooking and history. A recent book I enjoyed is "Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman!"
foooood: I love food! when i travel someplace i must try the new foods. I used to love meat but after my South america trip I overdosed I still love it but I just do not desire it as much, I like baked goods, good bread is surprisingly nice (dont ask why) I also cut on this as it seems to hurt when I eat a lot. I still eat whole lot of chocolate, all manner of chocolate infused items. I started paying a lot of fruits these days especially in winter.
I try to bring back new teas from far countries. I am a big tea lover and drink it a lot more then coffee. In fact all manner of exotic food is great.
Movies: We used to watch many movies while we could not go out because of the snow blocking the doors during the long Canadian winters (sometimes while we waited for the baby seals to come up for air) but in the mild European weather is nicer to go out. Anyways some movies that I enjoyed are Brazil, Das boot, good Goodbye Lenin,Kin-Dza-Dza, Solaris (the Russian version not the new shit), A boy and his dog, fight club, Amélie (not sure if i should be ashamed of this),Rejsen til Saturn, Monty Python, Everything is Illuminated, The lord of the rings movies etc. etc. If you can suggest a good one I would appreciate it as I have not see anything good recently.
I was a lot of educational series on the web as well as Ted. I do this surprisingly often as I do not even have TV.
p.s. I tend to read magazines and profiles from the end.
-Chocolate (or something else sweet to go with the tea)
-The great outdoors and my time alone there
-Seeing and doing new things (I have endless curiosity)
-Job that I enjoy
Often I think about my next vacation. One big thing that always occupies me.
