I recently left my job in fire research after many years toiling away in an office in London and I am now doing voluntary work in countryside conservation. Outside of work I enjoy country walking and being out in the fresh air, swimming, badminton and reading.
I generally prefer quieter places to noisy places, and enjoy crosswords, chess and music, both classical and pop. I'd be interested in meeting someone who is similarly intelligent (!), has a fairly laid back approach to life, and who might enjoy the occasional walk, cycle ride or a good stimulating conversation about the meaning of life and whether we need to consume quite so much stuff.
