Here we go again…

With my last post being over 10 months ago, I know doesn’t time fly, I thought I should update you all on what I’ve been up to. Now, I’d love to tell you how drastically my life has changed since my last trip, but you see the truth is… it hasn’t. I’m still in the…

Goodbye New Zealand

Four days later and I’d reached my last day in New Zealand and what better way to celebrate my trip to this beautiful country than by falling 13,000ft out of a plane. Here’s a little taster I put together: Skydiving over the Tasman region is the most incredible, exhilarating and scary thing I have ever…

New Zealand’s South Island

After four days in the North Island it was time to board another plane and begin my next whistle-stop tour. This time of the South Island. Here’s an interesting fact that I didn’t know, despite Nelson being the forth busiest airport in New Zealand, after Auckland, Christchurch and Wellington, it’s runway cannot accept jet planes….

The day I met Bilbo

Please note: I didn’t actually meet Bilbo per say, but I did have a nose at his house. From the day I decided to take an adventure to the other side of the world, visiting Hobbiton was top of the list. Go ahead, call me a geek, but I love Lord of the Rings. Apparently…

Hello New Zealand!

So the time had come to leave Australia and hop on yet another plane to the beautiful country of New Zealand. Donned in my leather jacket and jeans (goodbye shorts) I arrived at a ridiculous hour ready for my whistle-stop four day tour of Auckland, not really knowing what I wanted to do or see…

Australia’s largest sand island: Fraser Island

What better way to celebrate my last Australian adventure than abandoning civilisation and heading out to the world’s largest sand island for three days of… camping. My first thought that morning was ‘what am I thinking’? I hate hate hate camping! Even at festivals, give me a hotel instead of a tent any day! But…

Sailing the Whitsundays

After two relaxing days in Magnetic Island I couldn’t wait to get on to Airlie Beach and start my next adventure, The Whitsundays. I’d heard it was one of the best trips in Australia so I already had high hopes… they weren’t wrong! This trip is right up there with Melbourne. Incredible! The adventure began…

Cairns & the Great Barrier Reef

Arriving at the airport was like landing on Mars, pretty much in the middle or no where. The 15 minute drive to the hostel didn’t seem much busier. Slightly worrying as I’m quite a city person, I’m comforted by shops, banks and mostly… people. However, my hostel was possibly the coolest place ever! Staying in…

Melbourne & The Great Ocean Road

I don’t even know where to start with Melbourne, by far the best place I’ve visited so far! After feeling underwhelmed by Sydney, I’ve put this down to not having much time to explore what the city really had to offer, I couldn’t wait to get to Melbourne. Everyone told me it’d be my favourite…

My week with OzIntro

What a hectic week this was! After a delayed flight to Sydney from Brisbane it was all stations go as soon as I set foot off the plane. My bag and I were whisked away by a lovely chap from OzIntro and taken straight to the Base hostel for a seven minute turn around. Yup…

The Blue Mountains National Park

Before I came to Australia everyone told me that I had to visit the Blue Mountains. Now, I can’t say that I’m majorly into looking at, or trekking up mountains (everyone knows I’m lazy) but this was the best thing I have EVER done. Apart from the breath taking landscape, our amazing tour guide Smokey…
