I'm looking to plan a trip to Australia in September. I'm in the US and want to hit Sydney, Melbourne, Cairns, and as many other places I can squeeze in.

I'm taking a break from the real world (I run a few companies) to renew my sense of adventure, stoke my creative fire, and to cross a place off my travel list that I've wanted to go since i was a kid.

I'm not planning on doing it luxe but don't want to do it on a shoestring either. A little about me - Im 32, adventurous, open minded, and love to have fun and meet people. I'd hope to find 1-2 similar people to create some great memories with and have the time of our lives. Age, sex, race is not important...

If you are thinking of traveling at this time leave me a message and we can connect.

Hello peoples,

I'm looking for someone/s who feels like going through Kakadu national park for a few days... I am going to be in Darwin from Sept 23rd in the afternoon until the morning of the 27th, and I'd much rather rent a car, drive around and camp out than sit on a tour jeep for several days, which seems to be the only other way to do it! If anyone is interested in camping, hiking, and doing a bit of the boat and nature walk thing for 3 nights (or 2), I'd really love to chat, so lemme know!

And, I know, too short a time, but I've only got a month and I'm spending most of it with a friend in Perth!
