Marianne (and Mark)
We enjoy travelling and now our children are grown, plan to do a lot more! Until recently I worked for the Government as an analyst in the compliance division. Mark is an engineer, working as a consultant in the renewable energy field.
When planning our travels, we like to alternate our destinations between our home country (Australia) and travelling overseas. We love jumping in our 4wd vehicle to go camping in the Australian outback, a deserted beach or National park! We also love travelling overseas to experience different cultures and scenery. Some of our travel destinations have included much of outback Australia, New Zealand, several south east Asian countries, France and Italy. We are planning a trip to North America in 2013.
We are a mature couple with a sense of adventure. We are proud homeowners, quiet, clean and tidy. We are respectful of other people, both personally and with property. When travelling we are independent style travellers. We usually seek out the ‘highlights” of the destination we are visiting, but also like to ‘free range’ and soak up some local atmosphere as well.
A few years ago, we sold our large inner city home when the kids left home. We now live in a beautiful inner city apartment overlooking a wonderful park. We hope to experience Airbnb as travellers before we might try hosting!
