One thing I want to do before I die
When I was 20 I said I wanted to drive a Porsche, sail on QE2 and fly on the Concorde. Oh well, one of them is still a chance :)
Favourite book
Anything JRR Tolkein, anything Dune series, travel books, Turn Right at Machu Picchu by Mark Adams
My friends describe me as
Impulsive, opinionated
The most amazing moment in my life so far
Walking up a valley in Greenland, noone else around, vivid summer colours, glacier rising in the distance, never wanted to leave. Hanging off an inner tube, surrounded by thousands of fish, in a channel on Bora Bora. Greenland again - seeing a polar bear.
We live in Brisbane in sunny Queensland, Australia.

We pretty much work to travel (oh, and to pay the mortgage off).

We have no travel preference (apart from an aversion to backpacking by one of us) - we love train travel, plane travel, ship travel, car travel.  Not really into large group travel either (as in a bus full of people racing between photo opportunities).

We don't arrive in a city/town/village and go looking for a Macca's, even if they have clean toilets.  A toilet is a toilet.  Nothing' in one is gunna kill us.

We eat anything and everything - street food is THE BEST.

Hope you enjoy our trips :)
