We are a retired couple from Tasmania, Australia. We love to travel, meet people and experience other cultures. We spent 3 months in Ecuador, Peru and Chile in 2011 then a further 4 months in Argentina, Uruguay, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador and Colombia in 2012. We travelled for 4 months last year.We covered the UK, Belgium,Netherlands. Luxembourg, Germany, Lithuania, Latvia, Russia (across to Vladivostok via Trans Siberia rail), back to Moscow (by air) then on to St Petersburg, Tallinn, Helsinki and finished with a White Christmas in Rovaniemi, Finland, before flying home to Tasmania. This year we hope to travel to Patagonia, via Easter Island. We have enjoyed spending many nights at airbnb accommodation in many places.
