I am 33 years old and an ambitious traveller. Most of the time I'm travelling just for the sake of it. I love airports and planes, and I am happiest when I'm on my way. I am very curious and interested in a lot of things (science, nature, technology,...) and thus my job at a research company fits me very well.
I have lived in Sydney for four months during my internship as a web developer and junior product manager when I was 21. Since then the desire to travel has never left me.
Usually I'm travelling alone as I am not willing to postpone my travel plans until a travel buddy or partner comes along :o)
I have been to:
Sydney, Brisbane, Canberra, Singapur, Thailand, Maldives, Egypt, Japan, London, Ireland, Montreal, New York, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Barcelona, Milan, Mallorca and other places in Europe. In 2012 I was going to Florence, Gothenborg, Iceland, Rome, New Zealand, Australia and Shanghai. 2013 will start with Copenhagen, Nice and Lisbon.
I am not a backpacker, although I travel very light with only a carry on backpack, I'm not overly social and I'm not interested in partying while on the road. I just enjoy the places and people watching, and being on the road, experiencing sights and the nature of different countries. Meeting new people is not necessarily a priority but appreciated, but in general I am a private person.
In Austria I have my own house - which I share via airbnb as it is huge and beautiful, but I live in a very (very!) rural area (60km west of Graz). I have two cats who keep me company in the big house.
