Briefly, left my native Scotland in May 2011 to marry my now wife Acacia, moving to Brooklyn, NY in the process.
5 favourite things (excluding family or friends which is a bit too obvious):
1) A good cheese board
2) Music and people who are passionate about it
3) Hiking, whether in the hills or around a new town
4) A victory pint
5) A cup of tea (but almost equally happy with a coffee)
Been lucky to have traveled a fair bit already, but now all I want to do is explore the States.
As a house guest I'd probably be friendly and fairly chatty, and would love to receive recommendations about where to eat / drink / what to see on a budget.
As for a life motto, probably "Everything in moderation, including moderation itself", but I'm sure there are several lines from Wayne's World that would work equally as well.
