"ADVENTUROUS AUSSIE!" Anniko's Profile

Hello from Brisbane, Australia!

I am born in bred in Brisbane, to a Hungarian father, and a Japanese mother, who migrated to Australia more than forty years ago.

Brisbane is in the southeast corner of the state of Queensland, Australia. The city is centred along the Brisbane River, and its eastern suburbs line the shores of Moreton Bay. The greater Brisbane region includes the coastal plain, east of the Great Dividing Range. Our home sits within this area, in Logan City, 23km south of the CBD.

As for travel ... although I started late ... (At age 36, I visited Hungary, where my father was born) ... it has become an invaluable source of inspiration for me, and a hands-on way to learn about other cultures.
My husband isn't as adventurous, but is happy that I wander off to some exotic place, then meet him on the return journey ... usually in a country with less of a culture-shock ... (ex-British colony) ... That means I get to see two countries in the one journey!

So far, I have travelled to the following countries:-

2004 ... Hungary
2007 ... Hawaii
2010 ... Queenstown, New Zealand
2011 ... Nong Khai, Thailand
2011 ... Singapore
2013 ... Thimi, Nepal
2013 ... Malaysia (KL, Penang, Putrajaya)

    So happy that my Hungarian towns have brought back some happy memories for you. I loved both
    Kecskemet and Szentendre.

      Lucky you ... I've never been to Carnarvon Gorge, but would like to go there one day ... Australia is such a big place ... and it's quite expensive to fly into the outback.

      That's great. I read your Malaysia pages but there are not many reviews, I look forward you have more reviews on KL and Penang.

      We have wallabies, which is really just a small kangaroo, in bush land near us ... but the one in my profile picture is an 'eastern grey' kangaroo, from a petting zoo, much tamer than those in the wild ... and we certainly don't encounter roos or wallabies every day ... not on the street anyway.
