I come from good old England but have spent most of my adult life abroad in countries as culturally diverse as Italy, Scotland and now Indonesia.

While you could call me an expat, there is - alas - no dilapidated farmhouse to restore or beachside bar to manage.

I have, however, had a chat with an East Timor king, driven a shiny red Ferrari 309 in Ancona (if only for half an hour) and drunk the blood of a freshly skinned cobra in the North Sumatran city of Medan. What more from life could you want than that? Well…

Distance between London, England, United Kingdom and Jakarta, Indonesia: 7,278 miles (11,713 km). Back in Magellan's day, a one year+ treacherous journey by boat; now only 16 hours by jet plane.

It sounds like you've had a very adventurous life full of travels. That kind of life sounds very appealing to me. I love traveling.
