About Hippy
Joined December 2012
Hi I'm Peter, living here in Brisbane on the east coast of Australia

I love travelling to far off places and in the past we have traveled as a family of five. But now it’s “our time” and my wife and I travel together as a backpacking couple. We both attempt to immerse ourselves in the local cultures and thoroughly enjoy the experience. At times there can be dramas and hardships, but it’s all part of the journey which can often be more memorable than the easier good times.

Skiing, trekking and surfing are my favorite activities, though finding the time is always difficult as gardening, painting and general home care taking often takes precedence.

I also enjoy strumming through a few old songs and sipping the odd glass of red wine with friends.

I have worked on the design of many major overseas mining and petrochemical projects which has provided a good living and enabled me to work in other countries.

But now it’s time for something totally different and still enjoy our travel adventures.

hippy. I can't tell (by your picture) if you are a hippy or a child of hippy parents. Either way, I like your handle. I too enjoy traveling to far off places. Don't get to do it much anymore but I have been around the world many times in my past business life.

Thank you for the follow and welcome to my wonderful network of fabulous people here at WA. DAN

Hi Dan,
Good to hear from you, thanks for the follow...The hippy comes from my old school nickname (Hipwood is my surname).
But didn't we all fancy being real hippies in the 60's. We grew our hair (can't do that anymore), wore funny clothes and smoked dubious foreign cigarettes....
Peter
Reply
gooddogpoky2 Premium
Ah those dubious foreign cigarettes...we use to just call them "dubbies." Thank you for your comments. I truly was hoping to find you much younger with a book to tell of how your hippy parents just couldn't get enough of the 60's. lol :>) Happy Holidays hippy...I mean Peter. DAN

Welcome aboard. I share a love to travel, have not done nearly as much as I would like, and I too enjoy being around the people and where/how they live. I have been to quite a few, but so many more to see and some I would like to go back to. Australia is on my want to list.

You can work with this process when you travel-good thing, enjoy.

I was an early 70's hippy. - About five years too late (I wasn't quite old enough back then) :)

Hi Dave,
I really can't claim to be a hippie, even though I spent a couple of months wondering around India and S.E.Asia in the early 70's. India is still the same but S.E Asia has changed enormously.
No I'm afraid hippy is a school nickname (Hipwood). Like you I play the guitar, or rather I strum a few chords, mainly with red wine, but I have a lot of fun.
Peter
Reply
DaveAckerman Premium
Yes, I strum a few chords and a bit of basic finger-picking. I was in Brisbane in 1990 when I was in the travel industry, and the Gold Coast, plus a couple nights in Sydney. I love Australia, from the short time I was there :)

Hi Dave,
One last thing I'm originally from Brum, I left on a backpacking trip in 1972 but I do return from time to time to see family and friends. We also have a poodle who's 17 but on her last legs, she never ate the mail as it doesn't come through the front door, as in the UK.

Howdy ! Thanks for the follow. I see you have been here almost a year now, but I get the feeling you have been away, traveling maybe. Traveling and being a tourist is one of my favorite thing to do, along with hiking, and camping. I understand the time spent gardening. That was my favorite past time at home, when I owned a nursery. People don't understand how much work is involved. Someday, maybe, I'll get to Australia. That would be nice. Do you remember Steve Irwin? The crocodile hunter. When he died I felt like I lost my best friend. Time marches on. Tom

Hi Tom,
I've been a member for 12 months, but I've not spent enough time at WA. We both seem to share the same likes, but to be honest I just dig the holes and my wife gets on with the gardening. Steve was a great loss' his zoo was only 5 miles from my previous house.

I just wanted to drop by really fast and let you know I’m here to help you if you need anything. I recommend starting with the Online Entrepreneur Training which can be found at https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/online-entrepreneur-certification-getting-started-level-1

I don’t recommend programs lightly, and I hope you find Wealthy Affiliate as useful as I hoped when I recommended it to you. I don’t think you’ll find another program that sets you up better for success. I pay for a premium membership as well not because I need it, but because I believe Kyle and Carson have put together a product that deserves to be supported and $47 for the value they’re adding to new affiliate marketers is something I proudly support.

Let me know if you need anything along the way!

Welcome to WA. I am Kyle, co-founder and also an active part of the community here at Wealthy Affiliate. If you ever need anything or you get "stuck"?, let me know as I will be more than happy to help you out.

I do suggest that you start out with the Online Entrepreneur Certification - Getting Started (Level 1) course. Work your way through this training and take action on the lesson tasks. This is a foundational course that will get you building valuable online assets in just your first few days.

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/online-entrepreneur-certification-getting-started-level-1

Anyways, I hope to see more of you in the coming days here at WA! :)
