Gary's Profile

Experience Summary

From a place called Huddersfield in North England, currently living in Melbourne. Absolutely love travelling and football- proper football, not AFL! Spent the last six months backpacking SE Asia with my better half and now looking to stay in Aus as long as I can. Highlights so far of this stint have been volunteering at an orphanage in Cambodia and completing my PADI Open Water. Other achievements include graduating from University, but I see my main achievements as travelling; done Camp America and one round the world trip on top of what I am doing now.
