An Aussie from Melbourne, I love to visit new places, usually accompanied by my husband, and immerse myself in the culture, history and especially the food. Independence is our thing, so we prefer to stay away from organised tours and walk the streets or travel by public transport to get a real feel for the town we're in.
Being in Australia, it's very easy to visit Asia and the Pacific, so those are my main travel experiences so far, but this year I'm broadening my horizons and heading for Europe. I'm beyond excited about the places we'll visit, the things we'll see and the people we'll meet.
Five things I can't live without:
1. Good food, shared with loved ones.
2. Books; I almost prefer reading to sleeping.
3. Wine, preferably from the region I'm in.
4. My bikes and running shoes.
5. My family.
