Going to Perth and not going to Rottnest Island, to me, is like going to Paris and not visiting the Eiffel Tower. It’s one of those places that makes up Australia and speaks of this country’s natural splendor. After arriving for an afternoon adventure on day 90, I immediately saw resemblances to both Fraser… Read more
Swimming with dolphins isn’t something I ever really considered in the past, but coming to Australia has really put my nature-loving side out there, and by out there I mean that I have a bit more of it than normal. Animals are now a focal point for me when I travel, and I blame it… Read more

I had heard about the awesome sunsets that come over on this side of the country right on the Indian Ocean. On day 88,… Read more
I about had a spaz out a couple weeks ago when I received a message on Twitter from Adam. I was tweeting if anybody wanted to meet up for coffee when I was in Perth, and surprisingly Adam responded that it was a possibility. What a coincidence!
Adam and Heather, two people… Read more
I don’t know if I knew exactly what I was getting myself into yesterday when I signed up for a brewery tour of the Swan Valley. Yes, you heard me right, a brewery tour. Everyone – when it comes to Perth’s nearby Swan Valley – always raves about the wine country there, but in actually,… Read more
I got off the train today. After a 65 hour journey from the Pacific to the Indian Ocean, I picked up my cute little piece of luggage and waved bye to my little train manager and headed on my way into the unknown land of Perth. The whole process of getting to where… Read more
I awoke extremely early in the morning to nothing but faint outlines of trees and bushes showing through the slight glimmer of morning light. It was captivating; I was so sleepy, and my body wanted nothing more than to go back to dreaming, but I… Read more
I’m a backpack sort of girl, so much so that I can’t even remember the last time I used “real” luggage for a trip. Sometimes, I look at little rolling suitcases and laugh. “Ha! What a nightmare that must be to get through the streets, along sidewalks, over bumps and humps and gaps.”… Read more

When I first started in this blogging game, I did it to share my passion with the world. It had a purpose of… Read more
I like being resourceful, and apparently I’m not the only one. I asked my readers what they’ve done to be resourceful and save money for and during travels, and the list that’s been compiled is awesome. It ranges from daily life decisions, packing tips and travel gear hacks. Have a read, be inspired and learn… Read more
Long or short, a holiday is a holiday, right? Well, yes and no. A holiday’s basic definition (to me) would be the escape from normal life, but it doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s a relaxing and do nothing sort of ordeal. A holiday means different things to different types of travelers; it’s… Read more
I choose items in green all the time, often without even thinking about it. I’m just drawn to the color, and frankly, I think I look good in it (it brings out my eyes?). Anyway, I have a healthy obsession with green things, and green articles of clothing always make it into my wardrobe when… Read more
