Explore the natural NT wonders

May 182014

The main reason for my visit to North Australia, or the Northern Territory as they call it was the Ayers Rock. Namely, one of my main interests in the last couple of years has been visiting place with ancient visual art and I knew that Ayers rock is a Mecca for someone with such interests. Luckily I have an old friend in Darwin, which is actually the capital of this part of Australia and she invited me to check out the city, the rest of this part of Australia and of course, the Ayers rock.

Be one of the few to explore this untouched place

October 82013

If you asked people where the top 10 beaches in the world are, most of them would probably list tropical locations like the Whitsundays or Bahamas. But you might be surprised to know that one of the beaches that regularly makes an appearance in “Top 10 Beaches in the World” lists is almost as close to Antarctica as it is to the tropics. That beach is at Wineglass Bay in Tasmania.

The most fun 3 hours you'll ever have

October 62013

I recently spent a week in Tasmania, speeding from one side of the island state to the other, trying every adventure available. And the Bruny Island Cruise was by far the most heart racing, squeal inducing and educational (yes, adventure AND education!) attraction I came across. It’s the kind of adventure that you could do again and again and it would take your breath away every time.

Things to do while visiting the Gold Coast on a budget
April 222013

The Gold Coast is an amazing place to visit, whether you live in Australia or on a tour. The place is buzzing with life and is a heaven for tourists. However, it is known to be expensive, which deters many tourists who want to explore but are on a budget. Being such a person myself, I can convince you that you can actually enjoy a Gold coast holiday, without running out of money.

The ultimate Brisbane weekend itinerary
April 112013

I’m a Brisbane local through and through. I was born here, grew up here, and though I’ve traveled the world, I think I’ll always call Brisbane “home”. Brisbane has just about everything that you could want; the convenience and variety of a big city, friendly locals and easy access to great beaches, rainforest and country scenery. There are so many things to do in Brisbane, but if you’ve only got limited time (i.e. a weekend stopover), here are some of the best things I’d recommend. Rather than a set itinerary, I’ve listed lots of things that you can pick and choose from to create your own adventure to suit your taste, budget and weather!

Waiting for the turtles, a moment from Heron Island
April 112013

The sky is beautiful tonight, black except for a quilt of silver stars. They flicker over my head and into the distance, while twinkling reflections bounce off the water. The tide crashes against wet sand, the waves folding onto the beach. It’s gentle, therapeutic, repetitive.
