The bathroom has a selection of shampoos, conditioners, soaps, body wash and bath gels to choose from. For the ladies and metro-blokes, we've got hair gel, hair spray, perfumes, make-up remover, toothpaste and a hairdryer. Not to mention, nice towels!
The bedroom, bathroom, balcony and living spaces are yours to use. All the drawers that contain things for you, be it kitchen, bathroom, dining or lounge are all clearly labelled - you are welcome to use everything there.
Because I live in the house, there are several cupboards containing my own possessions - so if its not marked, that's mine :)

My first trip from Australia was at 18 months old with my parents to China. On that trip I swallowed my mother's engagement ring on the plane and that was the start of my adventurous life.... Since then I have traveled many times around the world on my own, with my family and with friends.
I work as a consultant, so am normally traveling around Australia and Asia for work and I will often ask the taxi drivers for good places to eat and they normally know the good spots! I also always take a pair of comfortable shoes, so that I can explore the town or city I am in and maybe find some interesting things. The secret to happy work traveling is forgetting you are working and enjoying every spare minute!
If I stay at your place I can promise you the following about me - I laugh a lot and am always smiling, I am clean and considerate of others wishes. I do like to converse and get to know people, so I am not shy at all. But I do get tired after walking around all day and like to go to bed pretty early, then get up early to do some exercise and find breakfast. If you have a piano, then I will enjoy practicing on it. If it suits you, I would like to spend some time in the kitchen as I sometimes prefer to find a market and cook for myself.
If you would like to know anything else about me, please let me know.
