The Best of Byron Bay’s Sweet Treats

Byron Bay has a lot of things to love all at once. It’s got the beaches, it’s got the food and nightlife, it’s got the people and the street buskers and the markets and once you add it all together, it’s just got this incredibly infectious vibe. It didn’t take me long (within 5 minutes… Continue reading The Best of Byron Bay’s Sweet Treats

2019 Plans: Australia… & Beyond?

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?

Byron Bay: Peace, Love & An Aussie Christmas

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

Coffs Harbour: Touring Dorrigo National Park

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: Touring Dorrigo National Park

In Pictures: Conquering Port Macquarie’s Coastal Walk

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

Port Macquarie: 1 Month Down… Under

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

Great Ocean Road Tour: Worth $135?

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?

Melbourne: Thoughts on My First Week Down Under

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: More Than Just A Stopover

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

Decisions: Buying a One-Way Ticket to Oz

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
