While there’s more to Phillip Island, the highlight are the penguins at Penguin Parade. Yes, even over those Hemsworth boys. After a great trip prior with Nat, I was excited to share the experience with Rich. While it was memorable, not all of it was in a positive way.
Knowing we wanted to travel for as long as we could, we knew we had to find some way of keeping expenses down. No five star hotels for us. A fellow blogger told me how she saves a bundle with her long-term travels by housesitting around the world.
