My Medical Emergency

I'd like to start by saying, for those of you just hearing about this incident now: I'm ok! This took place on Wednesday 15 August and I'm recovering!


Bungy Jumping in Cairns

6 Months In Australia

It's official, we have less than 6 months left on our Working Holiday Visas in Australia! Once again, I'm baffled at how quickly the time has gone by.

We’re Celebrating!

Woooohoooo! After nearly a month in Cairns, everything seemed to fall into place this week. I can't even begin to describe how frustrating it was to sit around and wait for the right opportunity or moment to happen. Backpacking the east coast of Australia was such a high for us, but now that we've come... Continue Reading →
