'Battered Knight' It would be nice to have overall contentment in life; and compatible companionship, and friendship, would he appreciated for the journey.
I live near Lithgow, & have a diverse background; with my current professional work in the allied health, fitness, and sport areas.
Although preferring to dress casually, comfortably & practically; I to enjoy the very smart casual look. I enjoy casual dining; mainly healthy foods, white wines, & interesting conversation.
I try to apply some of the key principles of Buddhism to the way I live; & aim to treat people fairly, & with appropriate respect. Having an acceptable life balance of work, rest, play; & me time is also very important to me.
With a longer term demonstrated interest in looking after my overall wellbeing, I meditate, & do Tai Chi. From 25 years of past regular weight training, I am physically quite strong and powerful for my age; & am aiming to maintain that. After my past endurance based sporting years, I am now interested in fitness for longer-term health, & to be able to participate in the activities I undertake.
Currently my travel interests include softer adventure travel, & mini breaks. When travelling, I prefer a mix of activities, experiencing the culture, seeing the sights, & vedging out. I also intend to make short cruises a regular way of getting some time out.
I am also the devoted and luving slave to my adopted cat 'Gromit'; and a carer of a local nomadic cat, who I call 'George'; who has become a regular visitor who makes himself very at home.
To determine overall suitability, I prefer to get to know others via companionship, shared activities, & friendship; prior to consideration of a further relationship. Further, a non smoker is essential to me for any relationship beyond a friendship.
For those not seeking a relationship; & are primarily seeking companionship, or someone to do like minded activities of interest, that is fine.

What I'm looking for

- Some outdoor activities are of interest to me, including, day bush walking; snowshoeing, & snow camping.
