A Guide to Pambula and the Stunning Sapphire Coast

Living in a country as big as Australia, we have no shortage of amazing places to visit. Whether they’re in our home state of Victoria, or any of the other states or territories, our country is full of little gems to see. We’ve visited several of them on more than one occasion. But there are […]

Two Weeks in Myanmar: An Itinerary For First Time Visitors

Since reopening its doors to tourism, Myanmar (formerly known as Burma) is quickly becoming a new travel hotspot. After hearing some good feedback from family and friends, we decided it was time to check out Myanmar for ourselves. We are very glad that we did! Myanmar is rich in history and tradition, and it has […]

Our Four-Day Itinerary to Tropical North Queensland

The last time I set foot in Tropical North Queensland, I was twenty-three, a backpacker and I had barely any money with me. I stayed at hostels out of necessity, and eating out in restaurants was definitely not something I could afford. All of the money that I had, I spent on trips visiting the […]

Ngapali Beach: Paradise Found in Myanmar

Visiting Myanmar’s many pagodas, temples and ancient capitals was a big part of our recent holiday there. We loved immersing ourselves in the country’s rich culture and history. But after nearly two weeks of temple hopping, and being constantly on the go, we were exhausted. Some relaxation time was definitely in order, before flying home […]

Hiking the Main Range Track to Mount Kosciuszko

After spending a wonderful Christmas in Pambula, New South Wales this year, we were feeling the side effects of eating way too much food, and certainly not enough hiking! So it was just as well that after leaving Pambula we drove north to the town of Jindabyne, an all year round haven for skiers, hikers […]

Riding the Skyrail and Kuranda Scenic Railway in Cairns

On our recent trip to tropical North Queensland, there were two things we knew we had to do. The first was to revisit the Great Barrier Reef. That’s a no-brainer, you can’t head up there and not go snorkelling on the reef. But many people had also suggested taking the Skyrail over the rainforest to the […]

Our Top 10 Favourite Experiences of 2017

2017 has been a great year for us. We’ve maxed out our holidays, taking three international trips and several long weekends away within Australia. It’s been a blast! So it wasn’t very hard to put together our top ten list of experiences for the year. Taking a boat right up close to an active lava […]

Our Amazing Hot Air Balloon Ride Over Inle Lake

The experience that we were most looking forward to on our trip to Myanmar was a hot air balloon ride over Bagan. But sadly our flight was cancelled at the last minute, due to poor weather conditions on the day. We tried to find a spot on the next morning’s flight, but because it’s the […]

12 Things to Do and See in Inle Lake

After six days of temple hopping, we were keen to experience something a little bit different. Luckily our next stop was Inle Lake. This lake is Myanmar’s second largest, measuring twenty-two kilometres long by ten kilometres wide. This picturesque lake sits in a valley between two mountain ranges, in the Western Shan State. While the scenery […]

Exploring Mandalay: the Cultural Centre of Myanmar

After spending an awesome three days in Bagan, we headed off to Mandalay, Myanmar’s second largest city and its last royal capital. Mandalay is often overlooked by travellers, which is odd because it has so much to offer. We had planned two days there, but we left feeling that it really wasn’t long enough. Mandalay […]
