My wife and I are avid travelers always looking for a chance to explore new places and to get a few weeks (or months!) away from the office (I'm an engineer and she's a business consultant with (website hidden)). We've traveled via short-term vacations, one 6 month world trip and a 2 month return world trip. Places we've been..... New Zealand, Mexico, Guatemala, Canada, Ireland, Scotland, Germany, Tasmania (ok it is really just Australia but hey), India, Spain, Portugal, Czech Republic, Finland, Russia, Mongolia, China, Cambodia, Laos, DPRK (North Korea), Australia, Fiji, Chile, Greece and Argentina.
We've lived in Texas (where I grew up and where we are currently based), California, Chicago, Germany (she was born and raised in former East Germany) and Brisbane (Australia). We travel because it's fun, it's not work (well, most of the time) and we enjoy meeting new people. We're pretty laid back, low maintenance and prefer independent travel.
