Methusleh On The Move
A grumpy old man who got the travel bug late in life. I now like to go to unusual and exotic places. Have visited Vietnam (3 times - first trip in 1971 but it doesn't count, since then visited again twice - in 2003 with Carol and 2008 with the "almostnomads"), Europe 1976, New Zealand 1982, Malaysia (five ties), Singapore (eight times), Turkey 2011, Jordan 2011 (took part in an archaeological dig at Pella), US North East + California as well as Eastern Canada in 2009, US West Coast and Western Canada 2011, China 2010, Borneo 2012 - that's where I had an altercation with a motor cycle and tested the local Malaysian Hospital System - not bad - on par with Australia (except for the Ambulance Service - quicker to walk). In 2013 I visited some of the "Stans" - Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan and Kashgar in China, followed by Turkey, Iran and the UAE. Highly recommend Iran. Mongolia was visited in 2014 (caught up with one of my traveling companions from the "Stans" - Flo from NZ. She was on the same tour as me again). Then it was off to Hong Kong and Macau. 2015 - off to Siberia and the Kamchatka Peninsula in the Russian Far East - amazing. On the way home stopped off in South Korea (the North is on the bucket list). Back to China in 2017 - an overland trip from Xi'an to Kashgar to complete the Silk Road. Interested in history, archaeology and trains and try to satisfy all three where ever I go.
