I’m terrible at writing about myself so I’ve decided to leave you with these 10 random facts about me:
#1 My first car was a 1973 VW Beetle, she was blue and called baby.
#2 I have a slight obsession with Hannibal Lector…if I could meet any literary character it would be him.
#3 Joe (my lovely boyfriend in the photo above) & I are trying to make our way around all of the museums in Europe that have a Dinosaur exhibition…so far we’ve been to:
- Museum of Natural Sciences in Brussels (Belgium)
- The Wilson in Cheltenham (UK)
- Naturalis in Leiden (The Netherlands)
- Natural History Museum in London (UK)
- Naturhistorisches Museum in Vienna (Austria)
- Magyar Természettudományi Múzeum in Budapest (Hungary).
#4 I’ve bungee jumped at Victoria Falls.
#5 I really enjoy shooting, in particular rifle shooting. I’d always wanted to fire a sniper rifle and in Budapest my dream came true! All in all, I’ve fired: No. 8 Rifle, Shotgun, S&W 22 Revolver, Ruger Mk3, Glock 17, Browning HP, Sig P226, Colt 1911, Beretta 92, G36, MP5, AK47, M4 (my favourite rifle!), Colt Mk12 and Dragunov Svd – the Dragunov was my favourite overall!!
#6 I was rocking the side braid before Katniss made it cool and I love my teal coloured hair because it makes me feel like a mermaid!
#7 My guilty pleasure is TV. As much as I like to think I’m one of those people who doesn’t watch much TV, in reality I watch loads. You can’t beat curling up on the sofa and binge watching a good series. Some of my favourites include Grey’s Anatomy, Criminal Minds, Luther, Hannibal, Prison Break, Sex and the City, Louis Theroux Documentaries, The Netflix / Marvel series (Daredevil, Jessica Jones, etc…), The IT Crowd, Peaky Blinders…there are probably loads more…
#8 My favourite book series is Harry Potter, and my favourite character is Severus Snape…always.
#9 I’ve walked with Lions, stroked a cheetah, stood next to a rhino, held several types of snake, sat on an ostrich, rode an elephant and fed a hyena from a stick in my mouth…
