Countries I've Traveled To
Languages Spoken
English. Hesitant German thanks to 4 years of study at school in the 80s. Failed attempts at Italian, Spanish, and Tetum but it's not over yet!
Books you might find in my backpack
Music you might find me listening to while waiting for my plane
Most Memorable Travel Experience
Lived in UK for 12 months back in 1992-93. Had a blast and way way way too many good times!!
Not really MY travels as such but I dig it when travelers cruise through my place, arriving as strangers - leaving as friends.!!

Been away from "home" for 4 years now, thanks to all who have hosted me as I roamed the world. Thanks for playing the role of Tour Guide and thanks for the memories! xx
I'll take it as it comes and hopefully leave it better than I found it...
Retired now, bought a little block of land to keep myself busy when I'm not off following trails.

Kick back or kick off but always Go-ezi!
