Right now I consider myself a very lucky person. For my work I get to both help people in need (working in International Development) and to travel to many interesting and wonderful places around the world. I like to eat street food and drink in local bars and avoid wherever I can, the bland (you could be anywhere) 4 and 5 star hotel experience. Food, wine, running (not all at the same time mind you) are all interests as well as any local festival that might be within coo-ee!!
As a guest I am friendly and unimposing having travelled so much in developing countries my expectation is that the experience is "what it is" and a "positive" attitude will mean you make the most out of it. As a host well, shortly, following a renovation I will have a cool new apartment in "the worlds most liveable city" Melbourne on the air so am very excited about this and giving all the lowdown on my great city!!
