I’ve stayed in countless hostels throught Australia and, today, want to share some of my favorites. Base St. […]
Updated: 05/16/18 | May 16th, 2018 Australia is one of the most remote countries in the world and, ironically, one of the most popular places to visit, especially among backpackers and budget travelers. Because of its distance from the US, not many Americans tend to visit Australia. The flights are long and expensive, and when […]

I’ve been to Melbourne four times and can honestly say it’s my favorite spot in the country. There’s so much to see and do in this place! This post is all about my 18 favorite things to do in Melbourne.
We all have that spot in the world where all is perfect and all is paradise. Mine’s Coral Bay, a small town in Western Australia with one-road, one bar, one supermarket, three restaurants, and three hotels. In this post, I explain why I love Australia’s hidden gem (and why I’m hesitant to spill the beans on it!).
I hate heights. SERIOUSLY hate heights. Which is ironic, considering how often I fly. Any bump in the air and I grab onto the seat like Paris Hilton grabs onto bags of cocaine. I won’t even go near ledges or cliffs. And if someone does manage to get me up an observation tower, it takes […]
Fraser Island, located in Queensland, Australia, is the world’s largest sand island. Moreover, it’s one of those “must sees” on Australia’s east coast travel trail. The majority of people who visit do a 4WD self-drive tour around the island. You’ll spend 3 days camping, getting sand everywhere, swimming in lakes and streams, eating, avoiding dingoes, […]
