About Paul P
Lives in Edinburgh, United Kingdom
Since Nov 2009
35-49 year old male
I was born in London and moved to Morocco when I was several months old and spent the first few years of my life there. I have lived in France, Italy and spent a lot of time in Spain laterally Málaga in Andalucía almost a year prior to living in Edinburgh; where I have been living since 2000 and truly believe it's one of the most stunning, amazing cities to live in. I am a passionate traveller. I love exploring all parts of the world and enjoy walking round cities, trekking through mountains and have been to some weird and wonderful corners of the globe! My favourite and most visited destinations are Edinburgh, Glasgow, London, Rome Málaga and Seville.
