I am an Australian outdoor education leader (hiking, canoeing, skiing), teacher and travel blogger, living in central Victoria. I’m a huge lover of sport and photography. I have also been known to indulging in a quiet beer from time to time. So long as the experience is pleasant and inviting, I’m happy. I love the idea of seeing somewhere new, no matter where it is. To me, travel shouldn’t just be limited to overseas; my own country has more than enough on offer. This is almost as important to me as having a good laugh. If you combine the two, you have a great trip in the making.
