I'm new to the exciting world of international travel, but am hoping to change that next month. I'll be taking my first real trip out of country in November. I currently live and work in the San Francisco Bay area in the high tech industry. When I'm not working I enjoy playing/seeing/listening to music, enjoying the wonderful fresh air and California sunshine, spending time with friends, and working on nerdy DIY projects.
I'm hoping to find a comfortable and relaxing place to stay in Sydney and possibly New Zealand, and meet friendly and like-minded hosts that are interested in interacting with and getting to know their guests. I'd love to pick your brain on things to check out while I'm visiting your country. While vacationing I enjoy exploring a mix of urban and outdoor sights.
