Hi,

My name is Mick Taylor, I am 35 yrs old and live in Melbourne, Australia.

I have been traveling a lot since 2001, but now I'm relegated to the 4 weeks a year.

Have lived and worked in the UK for a 3 years as well as Canada for a few. Looking to complete all the continents - only 1 to go!! (South America).

When in new cities I like to taste my way round and explore the riches that other cultures provide, whether it be taking 8 hour chicken buses in Nicaragua to eating prawns on the beaches in Cambodia. I generally travel the tried and tested backpacker trail as there doesn't seem to be too many unexplored places, but that being said, you make your own adventure, but as I get older I can afford a few more luxuries.

When exploring new cities i like to maximize my time checking out the sites - so sometimes the hotel and hopefully the/your apartment will just be used for sleep, but with this comes experiencing life as a local.

Favourite travel destination would be Vietnam (this often changes) - from the madness of the big cities to the peace and quiet of the mountainous regions. Throw in cheap amazing food, great coffee, beaches and friendly locals (most of the time).

I am living with my partner Deborah, she is also 35 and has lived and worked in Asia for over 5 years. (Japan and Korea). Deborah is also well traveled and wants to opportunity to enjoy life as a local.

We are busy professionals and have an active social life as well as playing and watching sports. There is a great music scene here so we get out to as many gigs as we can. Will be hoping to do the same while traveling, but would also like to see local market fairs, shows, wineries and festivals in the area.

We are traveling through USA/Canada in August 2015 and we hoping to have access to some great places to stay to make the trip that bit more special.

I hope you like what you read.

Cheers,
Mick
