"A few words about myself..." hunwagner's Profile
I was born in 1972 in Budapest, Hungary.
I still call it my home, but beautiful as the city may be, I love to get out of it.
Fortunately I have travel-happy parents who took me with them all over Central and Western Europe when I was a kid, leaving me to travel more exotic parts of the world on my own later.
After shorter trips to Eastern Europe and the Middle East, I started making longer journeys/stays in Asia, where I have spent well over a decade in total. Roughly 10 years of that was spent in Indonesia, especially in the remoter regions of Maluku, Kalimantan and West Papua.
I have also travelled around parts of Africa, Latin America and the South Pacific.
I prefer spending longer time in a country, and getting off the beaten track there, to rushing around the highlights of more countries within the same time-frame.
My main interests are wildlife, ethnic cultures, mountains and languages, though I like historical sites, too.
Things I don't care too much about include nightlife, beach resorts, diving and busy, modern cities.
Instead of boring you further with my bio, I try and give some more impressions of my travels by listing my favourite places below (strictly in alphabetical order only).
