My friends describe me as
The most amazing moment in my life so far
There have been many but if we go with moving instead of amazing I think we'll both vote for our day in Phnom Penh and the visit to the Genocide Museum. EVERYONE needs to go there. If you are not affected then you have no heart, no soul, no humanity.
We're a gay male couple who 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 my aversion to backpacking) - 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 opps).

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 :)
