About Me


To travel and see the world and learn as much as i possibly can.


I am a friendly person who likes mixing with all kinds of people and getting to know them. I try to help as much as I can when people need it. I have lived in India, Aden, Zambia, SOuth Africa and currently live in England (Bolton, Lancashire). I work as a teacher on a supply basis. My aim is to visit as many places as possible and would like to get to know the culture and lifestyle of each place.


Do unto others as you would have them do unto you
