Thaintro – The best week in Thailand!

Heading to South East Asia for the first time? Well look no further! This past May, I had the pleasure of heading over to South East Asia, starting my trip in the Land of Smiles, Thailand. Throughout my research of Thailand, I quickly came to realize that there were SO many places to start, routes to follow and things to see/do, even for a travel agent (haha) it all became a bit overwhelming. To pin point the exact itinerary I…

Bali, Indonesia – Uluwatu, Gili Trawangan & Ubud

A popular destination for all style of travellers; surfers, yogis, beach bums, party animals, foodies and scuba diving addicts; Bali, Indonesia has been on my bucket list since the travel bug bit. Bali is easily accessible from Australia; 6 hours by plane from Melbourne & Sydney, 3 ½ hour from Perth & 2 ½ hours from Darwin – due to that it is quite common for travellers to find themselves spontaneously booking flights to this tropical state of mind. With…

Exploring Australia's Top End – Crocosaurus Cove & Kakadu National Park

As I slowly tick off my Australia travel bucket list, Darwin located in the Northern Territory was one of the final places I needed to experience. Through working in travel, and by following many social media influencers for the past couple years; I have been intrigued by the landscapes and natural attractions that are present in Darwin. With that it only made sense that with having a week off work, I’d make the trip North to visit Darwin! Twin Falls,…

North Island, NZ – Rotorua to Wellington

I was awoken by bright and early in the morning with birthday wishes, and a big smile from Tessa as she sent me off on the rest of my journey. I had an amazing action-packed few days in Rotorua, and it was time to jump back onto the big orange Stray bus and head to the second cultural stop of the North Island – Lake Aniwhenua. Lake Aniwhenua I instantly fell in love with Lake Aniwhenua the first time I…

Bay of Islands – New Zealand

The adventure begins… in the Bay of Islands! Bright and early in the morning I am awoken by my excitement about heading up to the Bay of Islands. A short walk from Nomads is the Stray New Zealand office, where my guide for the day picked me up, Muesli! All the driver guides have funny names that coincide with a funny story that happened when they first started with Stray. You’ll just have to join in on a Stray trip…

A New (Zealand) Adventure

The day has finally arrived! It’s time to get my wanderlust on again! An early morning wake up call began my journey (courtesy of Byron Easy Bus) to Coolangatta (Gold Coast) Airport to catch my flight to Auckland, New Zealand! I arrived at the airport just before 7am, which allowed for a good amount of time to check-in, go through security/customs and grab some food. As I should have expected, there is no such thing as smooth sailing when I…

Wayoutback 4WD Red Centre Wallaby Dreaming

Day 1: As the alarm sounded at 5am, it was time to go. We hit the road, and the first stop of the day was the camel farm. When we arrived a few of the group decided to partake in the camel rides. I have to say that there is nothing more hilarious than getting the chance to ride a camel. See for yourself! Following lunch, we arrived at Uluru. Commonly referred to as Ayers Rock… or the big red…

Melbourne in Minutes

It’s been quite a while since I have had the chance to find time in my busy Sydney schedule to write a blog. It is something I had planned on doing regularly while travelling, yet had once again fallen off the horse. Though traditional “New Years Resolutions” have past about a month ago, I am making it my “New Years plus a month’s” Resolution to blog weekly about my “where-abouts” and “what-abouts.” Just over a couple weeks ago, I returned…

"Wandering" South Australia – Adelaide & Kangaroo Island

As a self-proclaimed “wanderer,” I tend to get very antsy when I am not on the road. During the last month of being in Australia, I’ve spent the majority of my time in Sydney working at Peterpans Adventure Travel. As a daily activity I have very much enjoyed creating individualized “trips of a lifetime” for travellers across Australia, New Zealand and Fiji. It has been nothing but an absolute blast and I finally have found a job that doesn’t feel…
