Jellybean 26 with Tim Leeuwenburg

Tim Leeuwenburg is what is known in Australia as a Larrikin. Defined by the Oxford dictionary as “A boisterous, often badly behaved young man” or “A person with apparent disregard for convention; a maverick”.

Tim’s not that young so I am going with the second one.

Tim is, like many great Australians, not Australian (by birth). He is irreverent. He uses “colourful” language. He is a stirrer. He can’t help himself. I can’t help but like him. And that’s not just because he has an adventure sport alter ego; KI-yak (Nice blog site title.)

So out in “the bush” in Australia has many flavours; it’s not just Red Dirt, for Tim it’s the cold Southern Ocean. Tim was born in England. He is one of the small number of doctors on Kangaroo Island and thus one of those remote doctors that has “Nowhere to run and Nowhere to hide.”

Our Tim has had courted controversy what with his “soft, strong and very long” Fellowship of the Ring Certificate. (You’ll understand when you listen.) Idealists! Don’t you hate them.

Tim and I got into a natter and for whatever reason we started to organise each others death. (I mean “end-of-life” planning.)IMG_2273
