Last week, Katrina shared how she saved thousands on a Kumuka tour just by shopping around and diligently doing her homework before finally finding a tour reseller with a big sale. Yes, it did seem like a lot of time and effort – something we all might not have or want to put in to the search – but there is a quick and easy way to at least save 10% off a tour without much effort at all.
Sorry to keep everyone in suspense for so long, but here is the outcome of the incident where I left our passports on a train in Sydney! It was not my proudest moment in the least. Maybe next time I should put them in a money belt.
This is the story of one of my worst rookie mistakes. Just yesterday, I set off in the morning (yes, I actually left the apartment) to visit the Russian Consulate in Sydney. With only a month to go before I hit the road for 3.5 months, I need to get this visa process going... and fast.
I get emails all the time from people asking me where to stay in Sydney, so I think today's post is going to kick off a new regular feature called "Sydney Sleeps". First up: a review of the Cambridge Hotel in Surry Hills -- a mix between young and old in a very convenient location.
I will always be American no matter where I am in the world. But, after 3 years in Australia, and 3 years of being with an Aussie guy, I don’t really flinch when people ask me, “How ya going?” I’m in a weird place, and that’s kind of what I wanted to portray in the LAST ROUND of the Canon Island Blogger Competition.
We finally, after over 4 kilometers of walking along moonlit paths further enhanced by the glowsticks on our bodies, reached a peaceful waterhole in the middle of practically nowhere — or at least that’s how it felt.
International flights from Australia are not cheap, so it makes sense to get more bang for your buck by incorporating several trips into one outing. In this post I explore the Round the World for Less! airfare option through travel.com.au. Bargain? I think so.
What is your ideal version of camping? Do you like to rough it in the secluded wild, or do you enjoy more of a glamping style? I think I'm somewhere on the closer end to glamping. Read more about that and the camping experience that changed my mind a little towards the idea of camping holidays.
My 2011 has been quite the adventure with several overseas trips and a couple of big ones here in Australia. In this post, I lay out what has happened in my 2011 travel life. Have a read, and then share yours!
