The latest Travel Journal Entry: Canberra for this trip was different. Rich and I had some shopping to do and preparation for Natalie’s birthday. Our girl was turning 18th. Life Changes.
To say Kangaroo Island is exceptional would be an understatement. It’s one of Australia’s hidden gems, although it is gaining a lot more notoriety due to their award-winning restaurants, lodges and produce. We spent three amazing days on KI and it’s a place that has lodged a place deep in my heart. It has character, charm not to mention scenery that will blow your mind. And, as I said to Rich, I’ve not seen so much Australian wildlife in one concentrated area – in my life. If this place isn’t on your Australian Itinerary, you need to add it. Seriously.
While Australia may seem laid back and easy to navigate, I’m here to set your expectations and give you some inside tips. The last thing you want is to look like an idiot because Australians will ‘take the piss’ out of you if you screw up.
I’m here to give you the insider’s guide, as it were. I share with you about distances, costs, give you a language guide, guide you to the best places to find the wildlife, help you navigate our way of life, including our sucky internet, and provide some other links to help you plan your trip.
When it comes to road trips, we’ve been around the block a few times, as it were. Now we’re on a 10 month roadtrip, you know we’ve put in a lot of thought about this…
f you’ve been following us awhile, you’ll know that we plan on walking the Camino de Santiago in 2018. I’ve been inspired to do this walk through books, blogs and friends. I’m the first one to admit: I’m not your pinup girl for a long distance walk, so I’m needing all the inspiration I can get! Here are a few books that I’ve read over the last year and recommend.
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.
