  • Description

    Hi, I'm Scotty! I'm 30yrs old from Australia but with British citizenship also. I am tremendously excited about seeing new sights & meeting new characters! Love connecting with people & seeing life done differently. Love new ideas & concepts. I am very friendly and relaxed, I try not to take anything too seriously (myself included) and to make life as much fun as possible, for me & those around me. I aspire to remain open-minded and spread positive energy as a general rule. A bit of a humanist/hippy at heart, but still totally capable of fitting into mainstream society. Mostly :p . Always trying to learn & grow.
    Some faults?
    I am slow to conversation when I first wake up & can tend to use four letter words sometimes. Like shit. Probably other stuff too.
    But all in all I'm not so bad. Deep down inside I want to be kind to everything that lives & make the lives of people I encounter richer. I believe we are all connected (but I don't get too cosmic about it). Huge value on honesty, always tend to admire genuine people. Love laughter, hate laugh tracks. Love animals, hate cages.
    Hobbies/interests:
    Mixed Martial Arts, human behaviour, Meditation, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Swimming, Lucid dreaming, Cycling, Snorkelling, writing, hiking, gaming, reading, exploring, saying yes to new things

    One day I will:
    Train martial arts full time & become a super crazy fit Professional Cage Fighter
    Publish a few books
    Become a super bendy Yogi
    Learn how to freaking speak Russian
    Be a Workaway host with an awesome project
    Own a pet bulldog named Thor. And a bird of prey ...name undecided. Maybe a goat too.
    Study at University
    Learn to sail (one of my Workaway hosts brainwashed me really well)
    Visit every country on this planet
    And I might just build a perpetual motion device too, for giggles.
