I'm a Fire Officer coming up to retirement. I am 50 years old and want to explore the world in so many different ways. I can do it on my own or in company, on a motorbike, mobile home, car, walking or any other way possible. Adventure, excitement and a passion to experience different cultures and other people are all my motivation. I was born and raised in England but brought up in a Polish household and love the two different cultures i have experienced all my life. My taste for travel was borne out of travelling to Poland every year during the summer holidays by train during the communist era. travelling through West Germany into East Germany and then Poland via Berlin was a great adventure as a child. Those holidays in Poland left an indelible mark in my memory and proved to mould my ideas of a holiday. I love to ski, motorcycle, watersports and visit various places of interest both on and off the beaten track. I consider a holiday to be a chunk of everything that makes me happy and if that includes lounging by the pool, then i enjoy that too. I crave inspiration above mediocrity, i seek pleasure and not pain (by that i mean leaving the yob and drinking culture far behind, although i wont let a culteral decision of international bonding by drink, go by). I feel i have a perfect opportunity, as i'm still young and healthy enough, to capture my dreams and release them in the field of travel. To do that i need to learn more about the things that are on offer and use the research to get the best out of any experiences i choose to take. After all things can go very wrong if the dream is not thought about, a little at least. So thats me, i am spontaneous, but can also plan. I am a risk taker but not stupid and i consider what makes me happy is worth taking a risk for because life is for living!!
need to see more but at the moment its probably Italy
