I am an Australian, living in Manhattan who loves many things about my life! Work moved me here about 5 years ago and I have made a home for myself with lovely friends surrounding me.
I am an easy going person, who loves to laugh at myself in a typically Australian, self deprecating manner. Any chance to laugh at life really, as it is a lot of fun inside of the right context.. I don't take life too seriously, although I do love to ponder about the meaning of life and explore that aspect of myself....I guess I like travelling up and down that spectrum. There are, like anyone, many aspects to myself, one just wants to get out, let my hair down and have fun, while the other is quiet and needs to go into the cave and recharge. I love the spectrum of experience that I can choose to go through.
I enjoy getting together with my friends and going to dinner, having the occassional drink, watching a movie, staying on the couch, or just hanging while they try and teach me the rules to American football & baseball.....(still doesn't make sense to me)....I love hiking in the beautiful surrounds of NY, which brings everything back into balance, especially when you work hard.
I love to travel and do a lot for work, my favourite places being Portugual, Croatia & Iceland. I love beaches & the sun, sitting by them and reading a great book, or even a trashy book. I LOVE books!
I spend time doing yoga, going to the gym and just aim at feeling strong and ALIVE! I am always open to new experiences and trying new things and in this city, there is so much for me that I want to experience...walk across the Brooklyn bridge, see the view from the Empire State...the list goes on.
I recently finished my masters and am looking forward to not studying, listening to music, vegging out, hiking, meeting new people and getting new insights into myself and my community and trying to figure out what next and how I can contribute something back.....there has to be more right?
Essentially, I really like my life, I'm a warm person that loves to meet new people from all over the world and who knows, we could be best pals, travelling companions, or something deeper, but it would be great to chat.
