It sound like you could have a bright future in the travel industry. Maybe contact @Sotros25 for pointers. @neik clearly has a mind for advertising too.
“Glasvagas - Every bit as good as North Korea!”
I like nature, including mountains, but I smoke like a chimney, so real mountain treks will have to go slow. I bet it’s really pretty where you live.
I like my fishing to be as easy as possible. I’d like to go fishing for food Scottish style, but you would have to teach me to use pretty much anything other than nets. I despise animal abuse like “catch and release”. I told this old Mexican guy I was staying with I didn’t want to see any bull fights, and that I always kill quickly - even fish. “That’s because you’re Russian.”, he said and laughed. He also told me he could easily have me killed within half an hour. Luckily, we got along really well.
I’m not “hardcore” at all. I’m just a rational and careful middle-aged gentleman who enjoys different cultures and intelligent conversation. In many places I don’t go out after dark at all, which takes some planning when you travel without booking anything in advance. Stay sober, never pretend to be something you’re not, and always arrive in the morning. Only once did I mess up and had to spend the first night in a park, but that was the Canary Islands. I was just on my way back home from India, and after that, I felt like I myself was the most dangerous thing around.
The chickens are staying with a friend for the winter, because I have no warm place for them on the island. I myself have also already taken refuge in Helsinki this year. My financial situation is looking a bit brighter, so travel might be possible, perhaps with a lady friend. Nice lady, but she’s not the type to suddenly take off to El Salvador. Actually, I’m not sure I am either. Desperately poor people can be dangerous. I have blue eyes and I speak English with American accent, so… But “Mis ojos son azules, pero no soy un pinche gringo. ¿Todo bien?”, has worked for me a couple of times when there was a misunderstanding at first.
