Australian guy, living and travelling the world since 2008 (UK, Europe, North America, South America), just recently returned to Australia in late November 2014.
I would describe myself as being a friendly and open-minded person. I like meeting people wherever I travel, its a great way to connect with people from all over the world, and make the world feel just a bit smaller and see things through the eyes of others and learn more things - even just sharing travel stories and funny stuff can make for great times out. And I've discovered myself to be a really good people connector - I'm good at meeting up with disparate individuals and bringing them altogether for impromptu ad-hoc meetups in any given place I'm at.
As a LonelyPlanet member, I appreciate the possibilities for contacting other LP members and asking for travel advice and recommendations, as well as being on the lookout for potential travel companions for future travels and trips :-)
