I live for travel! Whist I work full time in Melbourne in a great job and have a wonderful life on the beach, nothing excites me more than the thought of my next holiday. I love big cities but also the beach, bush walking, reading, good food and film festivals. I have travelled quite a lot over the years but really feel like I have only scratched the surface and hope to continue well into old age - there is always more to see and do. My travel style is to go slow, find out where locals eat, shop and go out, learn about local cultures and customers and try to get to know more than the main tourist sites. I prefer to spend as much time outdoors as possible. I like to get off the beaten path and visit countries and places that are off the regular route, and part of really finding the best of a place can be getting an apartment to feel a little more like you live there. As a guest I am fastidiously clean and tidy!
