50's Contented family man,who likes meeting people from around globe, interested in general info work, family, surroundings, customs. Collects clean jokes and riddles. Enjoys nature, photography, gardening landscape photography. In 2003 I had Long Service Leave which means a paid holiday of 3 months because I managed to stay in one job for ten years. Everyone in Australia gets this. Born in Karlsruhe Germany but I grew up in Australia from 1956. We lived near the Port of Hamburg in Germany and one day my brother and I climbed onto a ship but got lost on the ship later that night when hunger started to rule ....I wont bore you with the details as we say here the rest is history and we ended up in Australia, only to be reunited with the family in 1956, an early start to my travelling adventures. I did a world trip in 2003 and many photos are listed here from that trip. As well as the Bonus trip I got from United Airlines for doing the world trip with them to any destination in the central pacific area. So I went to the Cook Islands. This place is a real paradise at the right time of the year. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org The world trip included visiting the USA Germany Korea China Singapore.It was fabulous . I would do it all again if I had the money. There are pictures here from my house out the lounge room window at different times of the year. There are some autumn pics showing the colours around the Adelaide hills where I live. 2010 I ahd a quick triop to China as I had not had a holiday for 3 years. Most pics are mapped.
