My self-summary
I recently moved to Zurich for a new job. I hope to create a new circle of friends but of course also for something more serious.

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 :)
What I’m doing with my life
I recently started doing a lot of street photography and Bouldering. The opportunities are wonderful in a city like Zurich.

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.
I’m really good at
-Not taking life and myself too seriously
-Eating cake.
-Getting around new towns without a map.
-Outdoor skills.
-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.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I am quite silly. I say things just to see peoples reaction. Often its not appropriate or politically correct. I guess my glasses stand out?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
music: I like ska, jazz, klazmer, cuban music and blues. Recently I discovered electroswing. So some of my favorite music is Leningard, B.B. king. Balkan beat box, Manu Chao, Amsterdam Klezemer Band, Louis Armstrong, Oi Va Voi, blues brothers, Howling wolf, Caravan Palace,and many more.

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.
Six things I could never do without
-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)
-Good Food
-Job that I enjoy
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I seem to spend a lot of time planing my day to optimize my time. I rather not do it but i hate wasting time even more.

Often I think about my next vacation. One big thing that always occupies me.

What i am going to cook/bake/make for the next meal. mmmmm :D
On a typical Friday night I am
I am new in Zurich so nothing typical. I am open to suggestions.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am an engineer but I like curves!
