Air Traffic Controller, happily married, prefer the more out of the way locations, a bit more basic/backpacker style destinations (but not real basic- must have showers/fan/nearby restaurant), we like relatively undeveloped beach areas, meeting people - locals or other tourists (or travelers, whatever you want to call 'em), not much into cities, air conditioning, or big resorts/hotels, except for the occasional escape.
Been to SEAsia a few times, most recently in 2006, Australia about three or four times, Fiji six times, and Samoa once.
Likes: Nature, good food, beaches, interesting (and other) people, food generally, great views, sensible design (don't you love it when you find accommodation that has a suitable array of hooks/shelves etc?), nice food, roomy economy class seats (no longer exist) and good cruisy music.
Dislikes: Pollution, animal maltreatment/neglect, over-fierce air conditioning in the tropics, those sticky little labels they put on fruit.
