Is Wilsons Promontory on your Australian Itinerary?

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.

Travel Far Enough RTW Travel Budget Report May 2017

RTW Budget Travel Report: May 2017

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’s Hidden Secret

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?’

Why You Need to Go To Northern Colorado

Why You Need to Go to Northern Colorado

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.

Travel Journal: Experiencing Autumn in the Victorian Highlands

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.

Travel Journal: Housesitting in Gippsland Lakes

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.

Point Hicks…Through The Lens

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.

Until now.

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.

The Positives And Negatives Of Traveling Full Time.FI

Positives and Negatives of Travelling Full Time

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!

Turquoise Waters

The Sapphire Coast…Through The Lens

The Sapphire Coast…Through The Lens. A beautiful spot on the N.S.W. southern border. We love this area so much it’s now on our ‘possible settle’ list.

Travel Journal: Have We Found Utopia in Merimbula?

I feel like I’ve found Utopia. Merimbula is divine. It has everything I’d want in a ‘forever’ place. It was quaint, relaxing, but full of life. Have we found Utopia already? I hope not, because there’s a lot more to see and do… but it’ll be put on our short list for sure. Read on for WHY I loved it so much…

Why Merimbula Is On Our “Possible Settle” List

We have a list of places we’re considering for our ‘forever’ place, once we’re done travelling. Seattle. Hobart. Now, Merimbula is now on that short list. We were both completely taken by this quaint community. We write about why we loved it and why it fits completely with my long-term dream of our ‘forever home’.

Budget Report

RTW Travel Budget Report: April 2017

It’s our second month of travelling indefinitely. We’ve kicked off our 10-month Australian Road Trip and we’re having a great time. We’ve blown the budget in a few spots, but surprisingly not the areas we thought we would. Huh.

Southern Highlands

48 Hours In…The Southern Highlands

I’ve always loved the Southern Highlands. There’s just a certain class to the area, an elegance to it. Between the soft rolling hills, which always seem to be a luscious green, to the quirky shops and restaurants, there seems to be something for everyone. This is the destination for the romantic weekend getaway, the girl’s weekend retreat or even just a weekend to yourself. So, here’s how to spend 48 hours in The Southern Highlands.

Our 10 Month Australian Road Trip Plan – Updated!

We depart from Sydney in March (2017) for a 10 month road trip within Australia. Now, Australia is a damn big country – and obvious statement – so we’re focusing on the places that ignite us. We’re excited, aren’t you?! Here’s our plan…

Travel Journal: The Southern Highlands

We found ourselves spending the end of March and part of April (2017) housesitting near Bowral, in the Southern Highlands. We were looking after a home that was truly amazing and, after convalescing after a bout of the flu (or pneumonia in my case), we explored the areas. It was stunning. Truly gorgeous with green, rolling hills, cafés on offer everywhere … and then I started to feel old.
