Hello, we are Ken and Mark. We live in Melbourne Australia. Mark works in IT and Ken is a Chiropractor. We love to travel and in the past few years have been on trips to Europe, Middle East, US, Asia and South America. We love cruising because it's an easy way to see cities and places of the world without having to see the inside of an airport or lug a suitcase. In 2013 we did a Transatlantic cruise from Rome to Fort Lauderdale and another from Buenos Aires to Santiago Chile. When on land we like to stay at b&b's, homestays or private apartments. The knowledge of local hosts and quality of accommodation in great locations is what we look for. Local knowledge is invaluable. Our favourite cities and places include Rome, Berlin, Jordan (you have to go to Petra and Jarash), Bangkok, Cambodia (try the train trip from Bangkok to Cambodia), Barcelona and Santiago. Our bucket list includes Cuba, Galapagos Islands, a Baltic cruise, more of Cambodia and lots more of Europe. We also want to see more of the USA. Whilst we think we've done a lot of the US we've only just scratched the surface. Our bucket list includes driving the winnebago from West to East coast (with lots of zig zagging along the way). Ken is an avid cook and Mark an avid Collingwood (AFL) supporter. Don't hold that against him. We're long time Melbourne locals. Both born in Victoria we've lived Melbourne inner city, South, East and on the Mornington Peninsula. We've also lived in various cities around Australia (Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, Mildura, Warnambool, Bright and Darwin) and have been lucky enough to experience life living overseas in New Zealand and the USA.
