Another Australian lost in Europe.
Fitness and sport is a passion and a hobby. I love introducing people to the great outdoors and the pleasures and benefits of physical activity. After feedback and encouragement from colleagues and friends, I have decided to take the next step and open up my Outdoor Circuits to people in the Suisse Romande.
