It’s that time of year again where I beg you to indulge me in harping on about my birthday tradition. It’s clear and simple: Every February, visit a new place in Australia. The distance traveled and the time spent away bare no guideline but the motivation behind it stemmed from years of meeting people worldwide … More Top 5 things to do in Esperance, Australia
May I state with gusto, it was good to get back on the horse (so to speak) and trek with confidence again. My trek last week fell somewhat short of expectations. Irrational or maybe somewhat rational fear kicked in as I trekked solo alongside the Hawkesbury River on the worst trek ever. This week, my … More Trekking the Six-Foot Track, Australia
If you thought this was going to be some sort of click-bait type title to get you to read all about my most joyful experiences trekking throughout Australia, you would be wrong. Not even close. This week, week three of gardening leave I decided I needed a lighter walk and opted for the easiest and … More The Worst Trek Ever.
Greetings from week two of gardening leave. I can’t say I feel entitled enough to deserve this amazing (paid) break, but I sure am grateful for it. It feels oddly unsettling knowing I won’t be working for nine weeks (for five of those I’ll be camino-ing) particularly when it was unexpected. Alas, I digress! This … More Trekking Kosciuszko, New South Wales

After resigning from my job I was told to go home for the next four weeks, suspended from work. I have no access to emails … More The Coast Track – In one day.

And yet, no one has really ever heard of this beautiful place in the small state of Tasmania. It’s true, Tassie is … More Top 5 short walks in the Tarkine, Tasmania
I’d heard about destination weddings, but I never really knew destination birthday’s were a thing. Until my oldest friend from school invited me to spend 4 days in Queensland to explore the magnificent Whitsunday islands with her. I was chuffed, I got to spend time with my buddy on her thirtieth day on earth and … More Experience the Whitsundays
From what I’ve heard on the street, Tasmania has recently been ranked as the most sort after destination to travel to in 2017. Either I’m ahead of the trends or I’m just lucky…or I completely made that up! Last week Moo and I travelled down south to spend 6 days and 5 nights to see … More Top 5 things to do in Tasmania, Australia
For my thirtieth birthday I wanted to visit somewhere in Australia I’d never been before. A destination not too far, not too close and with some serious mountains to conquer. From the title, I think you can guess where Moo and I ended up in February this year. Check out my tips for trekking the … More Trekking Cradle Mountain, Tasmania
Remember that time I told you about my birthday tradition? Sure you do! How could you forget? Well, to refresh your memory, the tradition goes that each year I aim to visit a new place in Australia. It’s been running for four years now and Perth or as it was, Margaret River was year number … More Top 5 things to do in Margaret River, Australia
