Traveling for three months means you have to be prepared for anything and the places I’ll be visiting need visas and vaccinations. This trip has been two years in the making, so now it’s time to finalize […]

TweetI alluded to an upcoming trip to Australia and Asia when I talked about my upcoming year in travel, but now it’s official. I’m going back to Australia. It’s a day I’ve been thinking about ever since I left Sydney on December 1, 2011. And this time, I’m taking my sister Sammi along with me. […]
Tweet A new year brings the promise of new adventures and I’ve been looking forward to this year for a long time now. Flo, one of my best friends from my time in Australia, got engaged in 2012 shortly after I got home and told me her plans to get married in Thailand. So that […]

TweetThere’s not always enough time to devote a full stay at a given destination, which is where the day trip comes into play. Throughout my travels, if I’ve found myself with an extra day, I’ll take the train to another city to wander around. It allows me to see something new without having to deviate […]
Tweet Many “independent” travelers are immediately turned off by the word tour. They picture large groups huddled around a tour guide with an umbrella or worse, a portable microphone, spouting out facts about whatever random attraction they’re standing in front of. They picture fanny packs and knee high socks and massive tour buses. The hear […]
Tweet I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again: Australia is expensive. Sydney is certainly no exception and is likely more expensive than any other city in the country. While the US dollar is nearly even with the Australian dollar, it will take you much more of those dollars to buy the same items. But […]
Tweet While Melbourne didn’t get a chance to impress me, I did appreciate the street art that makes the city so popular with the hip, artsy set. I had read about the so-called “graffiti alley,” better known as Hosier Lane, before visiting Melbourne but knew I had to track it down for myself. Located across […]
TweetThis post is the final post of a series about the cost of traveling in Australia. It will cover everything else you could possibly need to know, including living expenses, transportation, shopping and other thrifty tips. Transportation Since everything is so spread out, Australian flights can be a nightmare. Getting from Sydney to Alice Springs […]
