Craig Arico


How long have you been an Aqualink Member?

Approximately 11 years

What do you enjoy about Aqualink? I call it the ‘Big 3’ – social interaction, relaxation and physical activity. Also, I spend a lot of my time at Aqualink as it helps me avoid having a cigarette. I’m really trying to give this habit up so spending time at Aqualink is really beneficial to me.
Do you have a nickname/what do your friends call you? Just Craig!
Most memorable travel experience? I’ve been to Vietnam a couple of times and had teeth implants done there.
Tell us something people don’t know about you? There’s probably 2 things – I like the written word and unfortunately I can’t quit smoking completely.
Favourite meal? Definitely Mum’s lasagne. It’s gotta be home made.
Entrée or dessert or both? Both - every Sunday evening at Mum’s for dinner.
Football team? Richmond (I think we already knew that answer, Craig!).
Favourite movie? The original Star Wars.
What subject did you dislike at school and why? Physics. I shouldn’t have chosen it as it was way too hard!
In 5 years’ time I’d like to …… Retire (but I won’t have) or have some of my blogs and stories published.
