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

Believe it or not, bungy jumping was never on my bucket list. I'd seen it in film and heard the odd horror story, so the thought of being tied by my feet, jumping headfirst towards the ground, hoping the rope doesn't snap on the way down... nahh, safe to say that never really appealed to...

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. I can still vividly recall the 40 hours of travel it took to get here and landing in Sydney... back in December 2017. In 6 months, we... Continue Reading →

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 →

Six Months of Backpacking

I almost missed it, if I'm being perfectly honest. I've stopped checking my phone for the time or date, and I most definitely couldn't tell you if it was Monday or Friday. Time is no longer relevant, and I'm enjoying being off the clock. As it turns out, it has officially been six months since... Continue Reading →

Matt and I spent most of last November trying to come up with a rough itinerary of the things we wanted to do and places we needed to see in Australia. There were a few obvious stops, including Sydney, Melbourne, Byron Bay and Cairns. As we began researching vans, activities, travel companies and hostels, we... Continue Reading →

Under The Sea

The Great Barrier Reef has always been on my bucket list. I remember learning about it in school, and was amazed at the beautiful colours and variety of marine life. It has certainly been on my mind over the years, as updates on the Reef becoming increasingly bleached and dying has made major headlines.¬†We knew... Continue Reading →

Our Top 5 YHA Hostels Up The East Coast

Hooray! We finally made it to our final destination, Cairns. If you've been following our journey, you'll know that we've been on the road for the last 2 months, travelling up the east coast of Australia, from the sandy beaches of Sydney to wet tropics of Cairns. After hours of debating whether or not we... Continue Reading →
