Simply Adrift Author: Jordon

Jordon - Simply Adrift 03My name is Jordon, I’m a twenty-something New Zealander, living in London.

I’ve loved to read since I was a child and my mum introduced me to her favourite childhood books such as Famous Five by Enid Blyton, and then to her all time favourite series The Belgariad by David Eddings. My dad used to take me to the library and tell me I had to pick out at least two books to take home each week – My parents both helped me to become a book lover.

I’m a cat lover and miss my beautiful cat that’s back in New Zealand. I make sure my brother sends me regular updates on him – as you do when you live abroad. I miss family and friends from home, but ultimately I love my life in London. I love the lifestyle here and I love that Europe is so close and I can travel so easily.

People often describe me as bubbly and enthusiastic, I’m often found bouncing around getting excited by everything that’s going on. I like to think of myself as a positive person and like to influence positivity in other peoples lives.

I hate like to exercise, I like to eat well although I despise don’t enjoy cooking, I like to go out and make new friends although I can be shy around people I don’t know very well. I have been told I have a facetious sense of humour, I can’t disagree. People who make me laugh and smile are a constant in my life.

Random facts

  • I’m from New Zealand (Don’t get that mixed up with Australia :P)
  • I live in London & have lived here for three years
  • I like to travel and explore places – every country is different & it’s so much fun discovering that out
  • I’m more active if I get up in the morning and do something instead of laying in my bed
  • My favourite book series of all time is the same as my mothers, The Belgariad by David Eddings
  • I love the YA fantasy and science fiction genres, they’re my go-to genres when I’m in a reading slump
  • My favourite TV show genre is science fiction, usually more geared towards space opera
  • I’m very much interested in coding websites
  • I used to think acting was my call in life, until I went travelling, & now I’m convinced I’m meant to see as many places in this world as possible

About Jordon

Jordon - Simply Adrift

I'm a 27 year old New Zealander that lives in London, England, mainly so I can travel Europe easily. In my spare time I like to read, watch Netflix, drink coffee, travel & explore new places, and dance around because it makes me happy. I love meeting new people and making new friends, so don't be shy, pop on over to my social media profiles and say hi!
