unterwegs auf Reisen
I am a mature, well-seasoned traveller of a warm and friendly disposition.
A self-starter, who is able to adapt to circumstances, I also find it extremely easy to get on with people from all walks of life, as my work experience (see below), demonstrates. Whilst the latter is wide, I always welcome the opportunity to learn new skills, and face new challenges with new people.
In excellent physical shape/health, I am exceptionally fit and strong for a person of my age as I exercise regularly.
My hobbies/interests include, but are not limited to, the following:
Reading, Hiking, Music, Cooking, Gardening, Writing, Singing, Dancing, Meditation Practice, (which includes work as a meditation practice, Mindfulness, Zen, Osho etc.), Handwriting Analysis, Massage, Self-Development,
Psychology, Philosophy, Cricket and Rugby Union! (Sensibly I do not risk playing the latter sport anymore!)
Having lived and worked in many countries as well as having changed my career several times in the last 35 years, I always enjoy meeting and collaborating with other like-minded, grounded and sensible souls. Please note I am also an animal lover, and they invariably seem to love me too!
And finally, one last thing which I feel is important - I have a sense of humour!

Mehr Infos zu meinen Sprachinteressen
Dieser Workawayer gibt an, dass er/sie dir gern seine/ihre Sprache(n) beibringen oder selbst eine neue Sprache lernen würde. Bitte wende dich direkt an ihn/sie, um Einzelheiten zu besprechen.
I am based in Thailand but the changing economical and political climate there has prompted a desire to return to Europe. However, I currently find myself unexpectedly in the Uk due to the disruption of my exploratory trip around Spain (principally the Canary and Balearic island groups) that began in the autumn of 2019 and which was cut short in early 2020 due to the Covid19 crisis. The purpose of this trip
is to find a meditation/healing/eco retreat or other similar enterprise to buy into and/or become a part of.
I don't eat white flour products nor food with white sugar added etc. However, I eat most things (inc. meat and dairy), and am prepared to buy my own food if necessary.
