So, I thought we could get to know each other a little more. As well as my About, I thought I would share some of my random quirks and facts that make up who I am with 35 things you didn’t know about me.

  1. I’m a secret adrenaline junkie – I love skydiving and roller coasters.
  2. I have bungy jumped three times including The Nevis in New Zealand (which is 134m).
  3. Photography is one of my hobbies. I love capturing and recording moments in time.
  4. I’m terrible at remembering names (nothing personal). It is on my list to devise a strategy of improving this.
  5. I have been to 36 countries… Working my way to 50, then 100…
  6. I love positive, inspirational quotes.
  7. My birthday is on the 6th April, which makes me an Aries.
  8. I have been known to eat breakfast for dinner – cereal, or bananas on toast.
  9. Looking at the sun makes me sneeze without fail.
  10. Drinking water upside down always cures my hiccups.
  11. When I was 15 I cut my hair to about an inch in length and bleached it blonde. NEVER again. I looked like a boy.
  12. I am competitive.
  13. I love baby animals. Actually, animals in general.
  14. I don’t have any tattoos.
  15. My guilty pleasure is watching reality TV shows, which has included The Hills, Project Runway, and America’s Next Top Model.
  16. When I was 16 I flew a plane.
  17. I’ve ridden a camel (and also eaten one – not the same one though).
  18. I can wiggle my ears and cross my eyes.
  19. I love Michael Jackson music.
  20. Receiving mail gets me excited. I used to have loads of pen pals growing up!
  21. I’m not good with directions, or reading maps. I have been told once (or twice) that my internal compass is broken.
  22. I love hugs.
  23. When I was younger I lost all four of my front teeth at the same time.
  24. My favourite desserts are banoffee pie and lemon meringue pie.
  25. I remember when the Internet started! Something to blow the grandkids away with one day.
  26. I have a cat – Oscar, who lives with my parents in New Zealand. Update – Sadly Oscar went to Cat Heaven at the grand age of 12 (human years) not long after this post.
  27. I love anywhere warm and tropical. Golden sand beaches, crystal clear water, palm trees and blue sky is my paradise.
  28. My favourite trip was traveling through South East Asia for three months.
  29. Spiders freak me out.
  30. Even as a ‘grown-up’, I still hate brussel sprouts.
  31. Scuba diving is a new hobby and I have my PADI open water certificate.
  32. I enjoy taking silly jumping photos.
  33. I don’t embarrass easily. I think this is due to not taking life too seriously and being able to laugh at myself.
  34. I like uneven numbers. My favourite numbers are 3 and 5 for no specific reason. Notice my list is 35 things?
  35. I have a silly sense of humour. Some of my favourite comedies are Old School and Napoleon Dynamite.
