I am from Singapore, which is NOT part of China. Educated, lived and worked in the States for many years some time ago. Presently working as a music teacher and married to a Physical Education school teacher in Singapore who is my constant travel companion, a loud snorer (sigh) and a Disney/Six Flag theme park fan. We often travel to the 3A's: America, Australia, Africa - because we love nature (I LOVE the beaches especially!!) and love chasing after waterfalls and wildlife. I rear many many pets at home and they are my saving grace during bad teaching days. We have camped in the wild before, and have been bitten by many blood sucking flies and mozzies (leaving scars on our bodies!!), thus we have been trained to be rugged. We are low budget travellers, so we would prefer to stay at motels, inns, homes, hostels - simply because we do not have the time to enjoy the luxuries of a hotel if we want to catch sunrise, sunsets, wildlife which usually appear in the mornings or evenings, etc. We just need a clean place to sleep and shower, that's all. We are a rather quiet couple, we only get excited when we see animals. We do not smoke or drink, we would rather spend the money on good food!
