Nature and the outdoors are where it is at. I live as simply and healthily as possible, drinking only water, breathing only air. Good food, good company, good music, massage, hot pools, are all soul food. Love to sing and partner dance when the opportunity comes up.

Am out of cell coverage in Rarotonga mid May - mid August 2022, you can catch up with me there by asking Tisa at the International Backpackers where I am. Mid Aug - Late Aug in and around Auckland. Always keen to meet fellow iNutters and/or go looking for cool stuff. Feel free to tag or message me, will get back to you ASAP.
