In October of last year (2016), my partner Russell and I began our next adventure: moving to Alice Springs from Adelaide, on an 8 month work contract. The whole move happened in less than two months, from the day we were given the offer, to the day we arrived in Alice Springs! I was excited for the experience, even though neither of us knew what to expect. Everything we had heard about Alice Springs, wasn’t enough to prepare us. Since we were going to be gone for almost a year, we had to pack up our lives in Adelaide, and ship it to our new home in the Centre of Australia. The company we work for, organised removalists to pack…

For most of my teenage and adult life, I had dreamt of the day I would finally visit New York City. I imagined looking up at the Statue of Liberty, spending a day shopping up a storm in Soho and I wanted to stand in absolute awe, in the middle of Times Square and never leave. I wanted one of those ‘I love NYC’ t-shirts, and every other cliche tourist souvenir you could imagine. Yes, I was (and still am) that person. But that’s okay. It’s okay to dream – in fact, I encourage it! Especially when it comes to seeing the world. Having a dream, got me to my favourite place in the world. I’m sure you’re wondering why I…

Australia is an incredible country – there’s no doubt about that. I was lucky enough to have been born and raised in this beautiful country, and am thankful every day for that! There’s so much to love about Australia. Wide open roads (perfect for road-tripping!), incredible beaches with even better sunsets, super friendly and laid back locals, and so much more. You can’t really visit Australia and not enjoy yourself! That being said, there are some things about Australia that not everyone is aware of or understands. So I thought I would share them with you here! I’ve already published a post with 10 reasons why you should visit Australia, and 10 things that you should know. But I’ve decided…

There’s a lot of debate in the travel world, as to which sort of travel is best. There are so many options when it comes to travel. Solo travel, couple travel, family travel, group travel. But which is better? Well considering every single person on this planet is different, there is no right or wrong answer. Everybody enjoys different aspects of travel. Some people like to stick to the more ‘touristey’ route, some like to head off the beaten path, and some swear by cruises. So what type of travel do I enjoy most? Well that’s easy – couple travel, of course! Being able to travel with Russell is amazing. I am extremely lucky to be able to see the world with…

In June 2015, I had my first international solo travel experience. I had done a lot of research and tried to work out what would suit me best, but eventually settled on a Contiki Tour! I looked extensively into which specific tour I wanted to do, and ended up opting for the Best of USA! If you’re unfamiliar with what Contiki is all about, essentially they’re a tour company for people from all over the world, aged between 18 and 35. So as long as you’re within that age bracket, you can enjoy everything that Contiki has to offer! What stood out to me with this tour, was New York City and Las Vegas. I had always wanted to visit New…
