I am a retired China/Korea Librarian from the Australian National University in Canberra and an accredited Chinese (mandarin) interpreter/translator. I love travel and the outdoors, seeing new places, meeting new people and experiencing the best in life. Love tropical North Queensland where my AirBnB property is situated and love helping guests discover and enjoy this unique part of the world just as much as I have myself.
