I am living in three worlds for the past three years; coming from, often visiting, loving South Africa (Nelspruit..Kruger Park!), emigrated to NZ 15 years ago, but working in Abu Dhabi. 

My passions - animals, plants, the synthesis of science and theology, quantum physics, mind/body/spirit stuff, Mother Earth. 
I love tramping and camping with a fire, tent in the wild bush but at the same time I love dining out in the finest restaurants in Dubai too. 
Lately into different states of consciousnesses but have not experienced it yet ;)
