After 10 months (re) Discovering Australia, I have pulled 18 destinations together that took my breath away. Even as an Aussie, I was astounded at how breathtakingly beautiful Australia was.
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.
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.
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…
While travelling indefinitely, we’re discovering AirBnbs to be invaluable. Not only do they provide space to spread out, constant WiFi and washing facilities, but some offer truly unique stays. For our Aussie 10 month road trip, we’re finding them to be cheaper than holiday parks and hotels! This is definitely the way to go!
Despite all the planning, the departure for the full-time adventure wasn’t quite what I had anticipated. Here’s the realistic picture of the start of our full-time, RTW Adventure.
Have you ever read a piece of news that affected you so greatly you were compelled to act immediately? I was drawn to an article titled: “Farming family lose everything in the NSW fires”. Here’s why we’re donating all of our worldly goods to these victims of the Sir Ivan Fires in Central N.S.W.
With less than 30 days before we begin our 10 month (re) Discover Australia roadtrip, we’ve calculated our pre-trip costs. We’ve determined a way to travel comfortably, frugally that’s a lot cheaper than buying a campervan and a lot less stress than towing a camper trailer.
This indefinite travel adventure has been a dream for as long as I can remember. I never anticipated the emotional journey it would take to get here.
With our Living List nearby, we’ve mapped out our travel route. Now we can see what else we’re missing! It’s good to keep reality in check…not!
When faced with an indefinite, long-term, ‘Round The World adventure, it’s shocking how brutal you must become with your belongings. It was emotional, but honestly, there’s nothing like a good purge to simplify your life!
How do you find a cost effective solution to travel around Australia? Not buying a campervan, for one. We dug deep, looked at ways we could be frugal, and yet see and do everything we wanted to…
One of the dilemmas I’ve had, planning for our long-term travel plan, is to find a backpack that will fit every adventure we have planned. I needed a pack that would suit everything from travelling in a campervan to staying in luxury hotels. And then there’s the plan to walk the Camino De Santiago in Spain: 800km over a two-month period (give or take). I needed a pack that would fit all those needs. I think the Mountain Designs Escape 40L Daypack may be just the ticket…
The Olympus OMD EM1 offers great overall performance with a very pleasing design. It’s easy to use, easy to carry, and takes excellent images
It’s one thing to have your itinerary on a spreadsheet, but until you book that first airline ticket, it’s still just a dream. So, how do you move from dream to itinerary? We’ll show you how…
Part of me wants to just pack a bag, travel the world and not look back. But there is The List to tackle first. I’m freaking-out because that list is long!
Our dream is to travel the world, slowly. When we first wrote out our RTW Living List, it was a mother-trucker of a list. Damn it was long.
There are ways you can save and travel further.
