About Me

Since Jan 2006

Lives in Conwy, United Kingdom

35-49 year old male

Late 40's with own business in Wales - travel for fun. Used to be a back packer and get well off the beaten track. Been traveling for over 25 years and been on every continent - except Africa. I have NO business interests in S. E Asia & Malaysia. The information I share provides NO financial benefit to me As to how we travel....well, a bit of everything. Sometimes, we might rough it - esp if we are in an out of the way destination. Other times it will be 4 or 5 star hotels. WE do not go to tourist traps or areas that cater for tourists. We prefer to be in an area still frequented by locals - we find we have a 'biggger' experience of the country by doing this. Eating and drinking with the residents is a fantastic way to understand a country. WE do not 'do' package holidays or packed out beach resorts or guided tours. Hotels should deliver what they advertise - e.g - 5 star means 5 STAR. equally, 'lodging house' is a small family run place that MUST be clean and tidy
