The Best 5 Things to do at Wilsons Promontory National Park

The Best 5 Things to do at Wilsons Promontory National Park

I first heard about Wilsons Promontory while I was working up in Injune, Queensland. One of the FiFo…

What to do when your road trip goes south

What to do when your road trip goes south

They say that you never really know someone until you travel together. This can be anyway from a weekend away to a whole year travelling the world. The funny thing about travelling solo is that you are always meeting new people and technically “travelling” with them. However, I don’t think you ever really get to know them properly until you spend some time in very close proximity. On a road trip for example. Nothing says getting to know someone better…

A Backpacker’s Guide to Surviving a Hostel Kitchen

A Backpacker’s Guide to Surviving a Hostel Kitchen

Ah, the humble backpacker’s hostel kitchen. Found in all shapes and sizes and differing states of cleanliness it is both a place of wonder and of frustration. From the fancy, shiny kitchens of the upmarket “flashpacker” hostels to small, dingy, could do with a remodel kitchen of some older hostels, each hostel kitchen is as unique as the hostel itself. If like me, your chosen type of accommodation is the backpacker hostel then at some point or other you will…

5 Things I miss about Home When Travelling Long-Term

5 Things I miss about Home When Travelling Long-Term

I love this time of year. When the only reason you need to meet up with friends and family is its Christmas.

An excuse to put on your comfiest clothes and get snuggled up under a cosy blanket watching those classic films that you re-watch every year. Yet at the same time the perfect excuse to get your sparkle on and celebrate the end of…
