About Me

Since Jun 2008

Lives in Melbourne, Australia

35-49 year old male

last few years I have started taking 2-3 months off a year and like to independent back-packer and car tour travel around to cover a lot of variety, rather than 'drop & flop' in one spot. As a geologist I tend to visit plate tectonic margins to see mountains, glaciers and volcanoes in the outdoors. I tend to travel at top of budget and - where necessary for amenity - pay for middle of the range but I do prefer to spend my money on the travel rather than the sleeping and eating. I also get to do a fair bit of travel in my home state (Victoria) and the interstate capitals of Australia with my work.
