I never predicted that 2018 would bring me here, to Australia. I suppose I always knew I would do something like this, I just didn't and couldn't predict when the opportunity would fall at my feet for me to be able to do so. But due to a few factors that I won't bore you… Continue reading 2019 Plans: Australia… & Beyond?
I don't know which of the songs felt the weirdest to hear whilst I lay by the pool in the 27 degree heat on the afternoon of Christmas Eve. Wham's classic Last Christmas, Elton John's Step Into Christmas or Band Aid? Definitely Band Aid. Do they know it's Christmas time? No. Never once have I… Continue reading Byron Bay: Peace, Love & An Aussie Christmas
Tours can be difficult to decide on. As a relatively new solo traveller I’m always seeking the best companies and tours that can help me to find unforgettable experiences that I am otherwise not always as capable of achieving on my own at a reasonable price. During my travels along East Coast Australia, I’ve been… Continue reading Coffs Harbour: Dorrigo Adventure Tour
Okay, I'll admit it. I didn't think Port Macquarie's Coastal Walk was going to be anywhere near as beautiful as it was. And it really was. If you are currently on a journey along Australia's East Coast or are planning one, you have to add Port Macquarie to your list of go-to places, if only… Continue reading In Pictures: Conquering Port Macquarie’s Coastal Walk
Well I don't think I could possibly have a better day to write about my experience one month down the line, on the exact day I left home 4 weeks ago - as there is currently a MASSIVE thunderstorm over our heads. The plastic shelters throughout my tiny hostel are being severely battered. I don't… Continue reading Port Macquarie: 1 Month Down… Under
At the top of pretty much everyone's Melbourne bucket list is the beautifully scenic, coastal drive of the Great Ocean Road. There's a whole bunch of tours to book from your standard day trip, a sunset tour, a 2 or 3 day tour coupled with the Grampians/Phillip Island or there's the tour I recently did… Continue reading Great Ocean Road Tour: Worth $135?
Technically I've been away from home now for 11 days. I spent 2 days of that in Singapore, another day roughly in travel and now I'm here: St Kilda, Melbourne, Australia. As I write this now, I'm sitting at a wooden ledge in a café looking out at the sea, which is probably about 30… Continue reading Melbourne: Thoughts on My First Week Down Under
Singapore was never in my original plans for travelling this year. At first I was considering flying direct to Australia, 'are you nuts?' I hear you say - Yes, yes I am. Thankfully someone slipped Singapore into a conversation with me and suggested I do a stopover there. They planted the seed for me and… Continue reading Singapore: More than just a Stopover
Life is weird. One minute you're working your 9-5 office job, saving money, spending money, socialising when you can and living most days as a tedious routine of waking up - going to work - eating dinner - going to sleep - aaand Repeat. The next you've booked a one-way flight to Australia, with no… Continue reading Decisions: Buying a One-Way Ticket to Oz
In 2016, I stopped off briefly in both Seville and Granada on a tour I did with G Adventures. Although I'd become accustomed to the quick pace in which we would move on from one destination to the next, I didn't always enjoy that aspect. Some places deserved more time, Seville and Granada both fell… Continue reading Exploring Andalusia in One Week: Seville, Cordoba & Granada
