I am living in the pretty and quite Costa Rica.
Travelling is a great and enjoyable part of my work and my leisure.
In September 13 I was in UK (York and my beloved Oxford where I used to live). In June of this year, I was in SF and then in LA (UCLA) for academic reasons...
I was in Vienna once more for a meeting at United Nations in March 2013. I visited Brno for the first time and Prague again.
Unsurprisingly, I was in Brazil on December 2012 for a month for my seasoning holidays and then 10 compulsory days in Panama in the way back to Costa Rica in January 2013.
I have been living in Costa Rica since August 2012. Before, I lived in Mexico since June 2011 to July 2012. I also lived in Portugal, Brazil (where I was born) and in Oxford (for 10 years) where I had my PhD and worked several years for the British Government.
I've got British and Brazilian citizenships because of this, but have not been knighted (yet)......
I consider myself caring, passionate, intelligent, sporty, well educated and traveled.
Travelling is not in contradiction to settling down: having a family is a priority indeed, and then we all will travel together in a very Scandinavian style.
“Old Trip Report and Impressions” for patient readers via some last years selected trips down to 2010 only
In 2010, I went to Madrid in March, then to Glasgow (saw virtually all Mackintosh buildings), Highlanders, London, and my lovely eternal Oxford. Finally, I went to Budapest (once again!) and for the first time to Romania. In this country I visited Oradea, Cluj, Sigisoara, Sibiu, Brasov, Iasi, Moldavia region as a whole, and Bucharest...Sadly, I saw tens of ghost synagogues which nevertheless were still depicting exquisite mix of local folkloric Romanian and Jewish motives showing high syncretism in their internal paintings.
In the same 2010, but on pure holidays, I went to Paris, Punta-Cana (Rep. Dominican), Venezuela, Aruba, Curacao, Colombia and Brazil between Sep-Oct. In November of the same year, I went go to Chicago once more, but this time to attend to the American Physical Society (APS) Meeting and then immediately to Mexico as a visiting researcher.
In 2011 was by far more modest and to make a long story short and save details, I visited Japan (Kyoto and Nagoya, and Toki), US (Salt Lake City), Slovakia (Bratislava) and once again Vienna and Prague.
At the end of October 2012 I was again at APS Meeting in Rhode Island. Then I finally visited Newport nearby for the beauty and mainly to be a remarkable land mark for religious freedom based on the first synagogue in US. After this, I spent some time at the University of Maryland as a visiting researcher and visited again the lovely DC.
