I live currently in Japan (long term resident), however Australia is my adopted country.
I cycle a lot, read a lot, take plenty of photos, sometimes enjoy swimming and snorkeling. I prefer ecotourism.
I am very keen on other people, countries, cultures and customs. When traveling, I always look for places where I can talk with “the locals”, to see what they eat for lunch, sometimes sit together and enjoy a friendly chat over a cup of coffee.
I am passionate about the analysis and comparison of the thought processes and mental representation of the world by Westerners and Asian cultures, especially Japan, China and Korea.
I have experienced a lot of good, and have met (and still meeting) great friends, but I also made some mistakes, and as a result I have been offered a chance to learn, how to cherish friendships, as well as build and rebuild trust.
I believe in continuous development and that not giving up and trying over again is more important than just smooth arriving to easy conclusions. The quality of our lives depends on how bravely we are willing to openly ask tough questions with no guarantee of reaching answers.
I believe people are good by nature. However, I am aware that the poor choices may be the source of hurting.
The purpose of life is to find your calling and sharing together the best you can offer to others. Everybody has some kind of precious gift.
