Have travelled over the past 15 years through Africa, Australia and New Zealand, Asia and the Americas. Happy to answer any questions people may have as I really appreciate the helpful responses I've received over the years I've subscribed to the forum.
Now in Tasmania and Australia for the summer to catch up with friends and family. Will return to the UK via Brunei at Easter and look to base myself in London.
Like staying in basic but clean, safe and central hotels/ guest houses, and to travel by local bus/ train/ferry/shared taxi. Prefer fan room to a/c, and appreciate a fridge and balcony / verandah (but not essential). Enjoy eating local cuisine and happily eat street food/ or grab stuff from the local market. I like to backpack and see historical sites and enjoy cultural activities. Like trekking and exploring off the beaten track places using local guides, with a visit to the beach every now and again. Hope this gives some insight to any questions I'll be posting on this board, or replying where I may have some helpful info. My main interest at the moment are other websites where I can obtain up to date, helpful information from other travellers...
