About Me

I am doing a bucket list car trip over five weeks from final week of June to End July, from Cairns to Gold coast traveling with a friendly heterosexual couple. Thus I am looking for both travel buddy (female only) as well as hospitable hosts along the way. If you have two furnished bedrooms, a car space for a four wheel drive up to seven days near any of the following stops, I like to hear from you. We are open to all terms to be offered and negotiated.

Both the male travelers(we are not gay couple but best friends last 12 years) are senior mgmt consultants in construction and mining industry, world travellers, and with lots of ideas and experience to share. We are open minded fun-loving and highly intellectual professionals given to debate on anything from East and West Philosophy, Arts, Architecture, Music and Latest Technology Breakthrough in Microchip and EV manufacturing. We can deal with all positions, stance or situations you offer as we have seen nearly all shapes and sizes, in egocentricity LOL.

Planned Stops - any of the following in each:-
Week 1 Cairns, Port Douglas, Cooktown
Week 2 Townsville, Mackay, Airlie Beach
Week 3 Emerald Rockhampton Gladstone
Week 4 Bundaberg Hervey Bay Sunshine Coast
Week 5 Brisbane, G Coast and Tweedhead

We prefer if we can share food and drinks with the host, which we are happy to pay and contribute more than our share if you let us know before hand. But if you rather not, it's fine by us too.

Music, Movies, and Books

So many and too long to list one by one. My kindle has close to a thousand titles probably more audio books. I regularly attend French and Scandinavian Japanese Film Festivals.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Not a swimmer, I joined a Shark Cage Dive in Port Lincoln, Last Year. Also, I built a state of the art $4billion USD hospital and a massive water reservoir in the desert for the 2022 Soccer World Cup in Qatar. Also the high speed train system in Taiwan and the largest Microchip Manufacturing plant for Intel USA which invested 2.5bill USD in China.

Meditation, Safaris, experience traveling living and working overseas, experimenting different spiritual and sensual experience
