Backpacking through Madagascar ... keep reading if you like the sound of that.
(I live in Cairo, but I'm traveling the US for the summer. I'll be in the Denver area for August)
I came to Egypt to work for a while, to pad the bank account and to work on some of my dreams. Egypt is an amazing place with daily surprises. (No, it's not how you imagine it. You may just have to trust me on that one.)
This isn't the only adventure I have in mind. Over a number of years at university, I gathered a lot of dreams--ones I don’t want to achieve alone. There's that sailing trip around the Med, the school in West Africa, and the houseboat hostels on Nasser, Volta, and Victoria. Maybe you have some to add to the list? Looking forward I think: "at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly."
Egypt is a good place to start on my dreams, a part from the obvious one. I do love my calling in the branch, and the opportunity of teaching my grade 5 students. They sure are fun! Here soon I’ll be starting an education-related business (I'm not a fan of debt and will soon be rid of my last school loans.) The nonprofit foundation idea I've been refining for a few years is now coming to fruition. I incorporated on February 29!
I'm looking for someone who will talk with me, I mean REALLY talk with me. Someone who is better with me as I'm better with her. She'll have patience for my impatience. She'll rely on me when the inevitable hard times strike. She'll really see me while others say I'm "aloof" or "hard to read," although she'll likely think I was challenging and hard to read at first. She'll surely like that I'm an idealist and a dreamer (the really handy, pragmatic kind). She'll love that I'm getting better bit by bit.
I'm looking for a women with whom I feel at home, no matter where I am. I'll love her spirituality and altruism ... her wit, health, and beauty. She's a very special woman. It would be hard to imagine myself without someone who's driven like her. She's not that woman who sits back and waits for good things to happen. It’s her great qualities that will allow us to have an egalitarian, synergistic, and joyful relationship--the kind that makes an eternal family--and that's the real adventure.
If you made it this far, you should also know that I'm mobile. I'm traveling through TX, CA, UT, WA, and (mostly) CO this summer.
