I'm a 39 yo Aussie, who's been traveling to Latin America on and off over the last 10 years. I've spent over 2 1/2 years (on various trips) traveling Mexico & Sth America so far, and including a couple of 2 month stays (in Xela, Guatemala; Oaxaca, Mexico; and working on an Estancia in La Pampa, Argentina). My ultimate goal is live in Mexico or Guatemala for at least some of the year, every year. For those considering my responses on TT - I'm a budget traveler, but not ridiculously cheap - happy to spend a bit more on a decent meal and a glass of wine several times a week, and I've never been able to to sleep in dorms or overnight buses, so I just don't travel that way. I enjoy soft outdoors stuff like horse riding, snorkelling, short hikes and boat trips, but nothing too extreme!!
