I’ve realised that a list is limiting. It limits you from seeing amazing places that you may not have heard of before and realistically, If I updated the list of places I’m learning about along the way, I would never get to any of them. It would be too overwhelming! So, maybe it’s time to ditch the list and follow my instincts… go with the flow, as it were.
I’ve travelled for years and I’m always curious what people take in their carry-on. So, here’s mine: What is always packed in my carry-on.
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. After being on the road awhile, with a number of housesits under our belt, we share our experience.
Before we began our trek across the Nullarbor, the great expanse of desert that connects South Australia to Western Australia, I had heart palpitations. I had this massively inflated image of being remote and the possibility of being abandoned for days. I expected to feel isolated on the Nullarbor.
It couldn’t have been further from the truth.
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.
