With 48 hours, we give you a clear itinerary for making the most out of your stay in Melbourne: Where to visit, how to get around, where to stay and even a restaurant or two. Melbourne is quite possibly the best city in Australia (and I’m taking a quite the risk saying that, since I’m from Sydney!) So pack your bags! It is seriously time you visited Melbourne.
It’s no secret that Australia is expensive, but there are ways to saving money while visiting Melbourne. Here are 4 ways to keep the budget in check.
After staying in a hostel recently, I believe I’m at the point in my life when I’m over the hostel thing. I just don’t see the value anymore.
Some recommended inspiring travel books to get your (travel) juices flowing! I’ve had my head in some of these books a few times now, always finding something new in them. I’ve picked the best of what I’ve read and they all come recommended.
Traveling is a lot like peeling an onion. The more layers you strip back, the more you reveal of yourself. Here I reveal how travel is affecting me mentally, physically and emotionally, 4 months after hitting the road.
Let’s face it, road trips can be costly but they don’t have to be budget blasters. Here are 10 ways to save money on your next road trip.
When road tripping, there is nothing better than an engaging audiobook. Here are some great books that have kept us entertained for hours.
I’ve discovered that there are some real advantages to having an empty nest. It’s without a doubt a fantastic change. While some see it as a Debbie Downer, I believe it’s all in the attitude. Here are the Top 10 Reasons I’ve discovered of why having an empty nest is fantastic
Wilsons Promontory was one of the first places we put on our (re) Discover Australia itinerary, after reading rave reviews. We’ve been to New Zealand and Hawaii, along with various parts throughout Australia, places that match these kinds of views. Yet here we were, totally in heaven. Wilsons Promontory has stunning vistas, equalled with amazing bushwalks and wildlife. You feel like you’re part of the landscape. Here’s why you must add it to your Australian Itinerary.
It’s Month Three of our life of indefinite travel. May was a massive month of travel for us where we were on the road much of the time. And so, our budget report reflects that. Come and see just how much we blew the budget THIS month!
Victoria has a secret: It’s the Victorian Highlands. Overseas visitors are seriously missing out if they don’t spend some time here. It’s absolutely gorgeous…another place for our ‘possible settle list?’
Northern Colorado – Boulder has a cool, hip vibe. Estes Park is so much MORE than winter skiing. The Rocky Mountains National Park is simply breathtaking.
Bright was one of the places I’d had on my personal Living List for a while. I’m not even sure how I had heard about it but it was a place I was curious about. It’s located in the Victorian High Country, nestled between mountains, easily accessible to the ski fields in Victoria. I hadn’t even seen many photos of Bright, to be honest. I just knew in my heart it was a place to add to our 10 month roadtrip.
A pretty lake on one side, 90-mile beach on the other, and capped by a National Park. Yet there was something about the place we just didn’t like.
During our travels, we’ve found we determine the vibe of a place very quickly. Most times, it’s positive and with an uplifting energy. In Loch Sport, we didn’t find at that all. If it wasn’t for the fact that we were housesitting and loving the pets we were looking after, we wouldn’t have stayed for more than a day.
Rich and I have wanted to stay at a lighthouse for a long time. Most lighthouses in Australia have lightkeeper cottages which can be rented for a night or two but the cost to stay is usually pretty outrageous.
Point Hicks is located on the north east of Victoria. While it takes an hour on an unsealed road to reach the lighthouse, it’s an off the grid experience you will treasure.
We share our lighthouse experience…through the lens.
Staying at Point Hicks was definitely a highlight for me. It truly felt off the grid and I relaxed. What made it interesting was the storm…and the ghost.
People are often curious what life is like on the road for us. So, we’ve decided to start an ongoing list of the positives and negatives of travelling full time. This is a living, breathing being that we will add to, edit etc…as we travel. Our travels at this point are indefinite, so it’ll be interesting what’s added over time!
Before we left The Treehouse in Sydney, we decided we would spend Easter in the Snowy Mountains. It was time for chill out time with the girl.
