Camping in the Grampians

A breezy, three-hour drive out of Melbourne sits the Grampians Mountain Range and campsites. It's a beautiful weekend trip to take out of the city, to exchange skyscrapers for mountain peaks, and tram rides for hikes. I wanted to go here for a weekend since first arriving in Melbourne, but not owning any camping gear... Continue Reading →


How to travel the world & work remotely

While I cringe at the thought of referring to myself as a "digital nomad" or even a "travel expert," with over 3 years of remote work and 42 countries visited under my belt, I figured I might have some valuable information to share with others who may be intrigued in dabbling in this sort of...

Melbourne Cafe & Restaurant Highlights | Australia

As much as I dislike the word "foodie," I'm going to have to use it in this post. My friend Nayda, also known as healthywholebeautiful on Instagram, is a real foodie, with a mouth-watering gallery of posts of donuts, burgers, and all sorts of delicious things. She's fun to travel with because she takes a... Continue Reading →

How to find cheap, last-minute flights

Searching for and booking flights can feel like a cruel game. Airlines hike up the prices on the day you want, the only cheap option has grueling layovers, or you get excited to see a low fare, only to get hit with taxes and fees upon checkout. The flight you booked for $1000 drops to... Continue Reading →

Christmas at the Swanston Hotel in Melbourne

Christmas in Melbourne was delightful. I love seeing a city in the middle of its summer, under the sun and heat, get ready with Christmas decorations and holiday cheer. After living in Minnesota almost my entire life, the allure of a "white Christmas" has completely been lost on me. For Christmas Day, we enjoyed a... Continue Reading →

Magnetic Island Day Trip from Townsville | Australia

A quick ferry ride from Townsville sits Magnetic Island, a beautiful destination to add to your Australia East Coast Road trip list. We almost skipped it to save on time, and I had heard from other travelers that it was expensive and wasn't an essential stop on the route, but I am SO GLAD we... Continue Reading →

48-hours in Hong Kong

After my annual visit to Madrid, reigniting my love for that city that will always be a second home, it was time to board a Cathay Pacific flight (my first time on the airline, and it was a great experience) and jet off to Hong Kong, my 3rd Asian destination of 2018.  To call the...

Whale Watching & Fraser Island from Hervey Bay with Tasman Ventures

After a drive from Agnes Water/Town of 1770, we arrived in Hervey Bay, a sleepy beachside town in Queensland. It's known for being the jumping-off point for trips to Fraser Island as well as big beaches and whale watching opportunities. Many backpackers on the east coast road trip trek of Australia book a multi-day tour... Continue Reading →
