I am outgoing and well spoken (so I've been told) and have a great appreciation for life. My weaknesses are French red wine, German white wine and art stores, to name a few... My dislikes include arrogance, boredom and processed cheese.
Currently, my favourite book is 'the wind up bird chronicle' by Haruki Murakami although I'm on my fifth read of 'In praise of shadows' by Junichiro Tanizaki, which possibly explains why Japan is firmly fixed as being in my top 3 travel destinations - and travel is one of my pleasures in life.
I like to think I travel by the rule of "like all great travellers, I have seen more than I remember and remember more than I have seen" as quoted by Benjamin Disraeli.
I'm currently exploring Europe and the USA with my girlfriend, and by the way, she is awesome.
