Pete and I love to eat, walk our dog, Lilli, read a good book, go to the movies, listen to live bands and meet new people! We also ski, (I'm just learning), enjoy a bike ride (Pete's the expert), are learning to sail, own a lovely motorbike and have gone on trips to Canberra and Brisbane (planning to ride through some of Italy on our next trip!) and are both learning to speak Italian. So far, I haven't been too many places although we lived did in Seeb, Oman for 6 months! Between us we've visited Vietnam (cycling holiday 2010), Hong Kong, Vanuatu, Fiji, Singapore and New Zealand, (most recently 2012). We both love a good movie and it doesn't really matter about the genre but a good belly laugh is my favourite! We have a number of friends who play in bands, the music ranges from hill billy to rock-a-billy to just plain rock. I play, umpire and mentor hockey and Pete loves to run! Me, I just love to score goals! Our last small holiday was for 5 days learning to sail, but the one we are really excited about and planning at the moment is 12 weeks off in May - July 2013 travelling to Spain, Italy, Hong Kong and finally New Zealand (for 2 weeks skiing).
As guests we are fairly laid back, we just need a decent bed and a hot shower (although I do love a soak!) . Our home is not always the tidiest (two teenage kids still at home and renovations always seem to be happening!), but we love good food and the fridge is always jammed packed full of fruit, veges and a decent eye fillet! When visiting, we always make that extra effort! Keeping the room tidy and helping with the cooking! The conversation is always our favourite though and we really appreciate advice on the best places to see and things to do. We try to travel as lightly as possible and keep our wardrobe pretty basic. We love the idea of Airbnb hosting! It's a fantastic blend of (website hidden) and staying at a fancy hotel! We'll be hosting as soon as though renovations are finished, inside the house at least!
Life Motto: Live it to the fullest and have fun while getting there!
