The one thing I am passionate about...
Very passionate about all things related to mountains and mountaineering, especially environmental and conservation issues. Love to travel to off the beaten track areas, embrace other cultures and ways of life. Involved with Mountain Rescue work as a volunteer, especially enjoy mountain medicine work. Particularly like traveling overseas, speak a bit of Spanish. am a first language Welsh speaker.
I typically spend my leisure time
Rock-climbing, mountaineering, mountain rescue, running, mountain biking, occassional beer/wine or dining out and socialising with friends.
The most influential person in my life has been
Honest, adventurous, faithful, but open-minded and willing to share new ideas and values. Believes in looking after themselves emotionally as well as physically. Mature outlook, but not afraid of new experiences and situations. Not a party animal (most of the time anyway), but able to let their hair down every now and again. Intellectually stimulating and able to discuss and debate current affairs, world events. etc.
The first thing people notice about me
Talkative, enthuthiastic, open minded, well travelled, very keen on outdoor sports, especially mountaineering.
The last book I read and enjoyed
Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Zafon - based in Barcelona and Catalunya, an area I've travelled a lot through, and also a bit of a mystery, and love story all wrapped up in one.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- having good health
- having a great set of friends and family
- working in an occupation I really care about
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
Quite a deep thinker - emotionally more sensitive than first appearances suggest.
Friends Describe me as
Dependable, Genuine, Optimistic, Physically Fit
A little more about me
I love being outside, enjoying the natural environment, passionate about all things mountaineering and would love to meet someone with similar interests to visit and share some of the great places I've been fortunate enought to travel to. A reasonably practical person, but not really a party animal, much prefering a quiet night in with a glass of red wine, or a beer in a country pub to a nightclub or similar
