Jonathan lives on a boat, was a zoo-keeper at one time & also met the Dalai Lama unexpectedly.
Emma ran away to join the circus for a few years (no, really).
Simon's house is like a lab, he is working on perpetual motion & alchemy among other things.
Dave is officially described as a 'Ranger, author, druid & Rock God'.
Hayley ran a butterfly hospital as a child, and brought many of the critters "back to life".
