About Me

I'm curious. About everything. I get fascinated wondering how different peoples in different times survived and thrived, what it was like, and how they would cope today. Wondering what we've lost and what we've gained, while at the same time being a geek for all the latest gadgets and technology.

For me the journey is the destination and as long as I don't grow up, I'll never grow old.
