About Me

Since Mar 2010

Lives in Auckland, New Zealand

35-49 year old female

I go on one BIG trip about every two years. I believe they call it 'flash packing' these days, it tends to be a mixture of nice hotels, 3 star hotels and the odd cheaper place if travelling with a friend. I enjoy soaking up the local culture so will eat local in preference and certainly not expect everything to be the same as at home (that is the charm of the place) but no longer sleep under the stars or eat at street vendors. My backpack now has wheels ;-) If travelling with my partner I'll indulge in nicer hotels and food and wine so my trips can be anywhere from cheap to luxury.
