Hello! I generally go by AJ and this is my blog! I absolutely LOVE football, especially the German Bundesliga! I also follow rugby, cricket, and hockey! The languages I mainly speak are English, German, French, and Afrikaans (am learning Icelandic and Gaelic)! Nature photography is a passion of mine and so in between posts about football, actors/fandoms, and rugby, there will be nature photos! There will also be random fanfic, opinions, and much talk about exploration as well as volcanology, geology, and meterology, not to mention tons of random reblogs of ships, Jane Austen and anything remotely romantic. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask!

Being a nature lover, I tend to reblog pictures of forests, trees, flowers, clouds, mountains, rivers, lakes, oceans, ice, etc. My favourite countries to reblog are Iceland, Scotland, Canada, Antarctica, Mongolia, Tibet, Nepal, England, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Greenland, Bulgaria, and other countries similar to it. I do mix my nature posts with actor and fandom things, so please do not think that I only reblog a certain actor because I will always have my favourites, but I don't focus on just one or generally who is popular.

My favourite actors would include Samuel West, Val Kilmer, Timothy Olyphant, Walton Goggins, Jamie Sives, James D'arcy, Tom Cruise, Colin Morgan, Jonathan Firth, Robert Carlyle, Dale Evans, John Simm, Russell Crowe, Paul Bettany, Jack Davenport, Benedict Cumberbatch, Andrew Lee Potts, Paul McGann, Christian Slater, Danny Kaye, John Wayne, Roy Rogers, Keith Carradine, Christopher Lambert, Vinnie Jones, Jason Flemyng, Bruce Willis, Matthias Schweighöfer, Til Schweiger, David Tennant, Jürgen Vogel, Chris Geere, Paul Gross, Ioan Gruffudd, and Ben Miller. ~

Springboks mark Heritage Day in NZ September 24, 2011The Springboks celebrated Heritage Day in traditional South African style with a team braai at their Taupo training base in New Zealand – albeit a few hours early on Friday evening.
The team broke away from the normal dietary plan to take charge of the menu themselves, braaiing steak, chops and boerewors at one of the restaurants at their team hotel.
Players and management picked up the tongs after arriving from Auckland, following the 87-0 victory over Namibia in a Pool D Rugby World Cup 2011 clash.
“We didn’t want to miss out on Heritage Day,” said Springbok coach Peter de Villiers. “We brought a taste of South Africa to New Zealand to make us all feel closer to home.
“The guys really enjoyed being able to braai for themselves and mark Heritage Day in a South African way.”
The special evening marked the beginning of two days away from the training field for the players.
“The players are bruised and battered and it has been mentally draining over the past few weeks to get to where we are now,” said De Villiers.
“It was the right time to give them some breathing space to unwind so that when we get back together on Sunday evening everyone is focused on the next stage of the competition.”
The Springboks complete their Pool D programme against Samoa in Auckland on Friday.
