I grew up in Canberra, Australia and while it's a lovely small city I stay mainly because of my fantastic friends. As great a place as it is, I do have to get away from time to time (usually winter!). I'm vegetarian and love finding new recipes for creative meals and baking ideas. I don't mind crowds but would much rather go and listen to some live music than visit tourist attractions, and I really enjoy checking out the great restaurants, music, nightlife, art/theatre shows, markets, and all the unknowns that each place holds.
The one thing I miss the most when I travel though is my tubby cat, Leon.
