About Me Firstly, I'm hopeless as describing myself: Energetic. Passionate. Words that lose meaning when you read them trough a web page. I grew up in South Africa, travelled a lot, now live in England. I'm not finished travelling yet. I'm studying a Masters, in the hope that it might give my life some direction. I wake up and see the Sea every morning. I cycle everywhere and work very hard. That'll have to do for now.
