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.
When I asked where my daughter wanted to go on a road trip, I never thought South Dakota would be the answer. It turned out to be an EPIC roadtrip! As in life-changing.
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.
Staying within Kosciuszko National Park is perfect to base yourself when visiting N.S.W.’s Snowy Mountains. It’s beautiful and you can be one with nature.
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.
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…
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’.
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.
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.
