There's something beautiful about planning. Especially when it comes to travel. It's the way that it builds anticipation and excitement. Those hours spent exploring accommodation options and Google images of remote beaches. It gives you some evening inspiration to explore rather than zoning out in front of Netflix for countless hours.Read More

Catching public transport just doesn't have the same appeal at home. There's nothing exotic about jumping on a bus in Brisbane city or slogging it through the burbs on your daily train commute. Where I live on the Sunshine Coast we barely even have public transport! And yet, when you're in a foreign country, the way you get from point A to point B, all become part of the glorious, romantic adventure. Whether it's riding on the back of a motorbike in Indonesia, (without the inhibitions of a helmet) or dodging heart-palpitation-inducing traffic in an Indian rickshaw - the way we travel becomes part of the beautiful fabric of our journey tales. But there are risks and rewards with every option!Read More

That may actually be one of the only things a remember from high school biology! But for some reason, not everyone who travels seems to understand or take seriously that our decisions and the choices we make and activities we partake in while "on holidays" really does have an impact on the people, the communities and the culture of the country we are merely passing through. I certainly don't want to come across as condescending - in fact I am the first to admit I have made mistakes while travelling and with knowledge and maturity I would definitely make different decisions now in some situations that I may have found myself in during my late teens and early 20s. And in my early 30s I also don't suppose to be expert on anything! However, I also strongly believe ignorance is NOT bliss under any circumstance. That's actually not good enough!Read More
Oh my goodness. If I had a dollar for every time I've heard someone trot out one of these dodgy pieces of travel advice, I could give up my day job and swan about in the world's most exotic and luxurious hotels forever. OK, maybe just backpacker hostels... But the point is, so many people say this stuff!Read More
