I recently moved to Victoria from Edmonton, finally got tired of the Alberta winters. I still work in Alberta though, so I do the commute thing every couple of weeks.
My passion is travelling, for sure. I've been to about 20 countries now. Everywhere from Peru to Cambodia to Australia. Couldn't pick a favorite, all I know for sure is that I can't wait to see more. I love being around new cultures and the feeling that comes from walking down the main street of some city/country you've never been to before.
On a more day to day basis I enjoy snowboarding whenever possible, and I like to keep fit. I wouldn't consider myself a fitness nut but going to the gym is a definitely a part of my daily life. I also like doing jiu jitsu and have competed a few times, didn't exactly kick ass, but I did learn it can be a little bit of fun to take a small beating!
I also study engineering through correspondence so I tend to pretty busy on my days off so I thought this might be a good way to meet some people in a new place.
As for what i'm looking for in a woman...Pretty open minded really but would definitely want an adventurous and independent girl who like to look after herself and is active. And, absolutely must like/want to travel, because I've got plenty of world left to see!
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I'm up for just about anything, but maybe a coffee or a drink at a pub is the best way to start off and then try something more adventurous the second time around.
