In brief...

I'm a Nature-lover, aspiring conservationist, and wannabe traveller in search of outdoor adventure.
My interests vary from conservation to education to heritage to Nature (biodiversity & wildlife) to outdoor activities to life in general.
They occupy most of my waking moment.

Brisbane.

Been here for a little more than a week now, and I'm quite liking this place. It's bigger than Cambridge (duh!) but smaller than London, so not all that crowded but still having lots to explore. It's rather hilly but I guess that's good for training and general fitness. The Brisbane river meanders a little and the city is built around it, and there are the most beautiful sunsets, the colours making me wish I were an artist - even though I don't get a clear view of it. It's a little price-y, even compared to the UK, and though the ferry is great, the buses are almost never on time.

The best thing though, is probably the climbing. I've climbed more the past week than I have in the first half of this year. Sooo weak now, terrible endurance and especially finger strength, but if I keep it up, it'll be great.

The University of Queensland St Lucia is really awesome too, and they've got some beautiful lakes with lots of birds around. I'm really excited by the work too :)

This is the first time in 5 years that I am not spending at least a month in a place with minimal contact with the outside world (ie no internet). I am missing my retreat and solitude (and reading spree), but it's still brilliant.

Rowing on the Brisbane river which kinda reminded me of Cambridge
