Spectacular Strupen: A Day Hike to Remember in the Lyngen Alps

Throughout my trips to Norway in the last few years, one thing has always been in the back of my mind. As much as I have loved exploring the country in winter and seeing it in all its snow-frosted majesty, I’ve wanted to go hiking. I’ve wanted to sweat it out climbing high up above…

How To Survive Camping at Coachella

Even if you’re someone who travels the world seeking out summer festivals — a banner I definitely do not fall under, having never been to a multi-day music festival before — Coachella presents something of a challenge (especially if you’re camping). How will you survive three days and four nights in the California desert, where…

A Holiday Gift Guide for Female Travellers

What exactly do you buy for a female traveller, especially one travelling full-time? It’s a tough decision because it seems like every choice is either something that will either weigh her down or will cost way more than your budget (in my case, that’s nearly anything to do with photography). Having spent half of this…

Why You Should Travel Solo…No Matter What the Media Says

Recently, news broke that an American mother named Sarai Sierra had traveled to Turkey on her own, only to be tragically murdered on the day she was due to return home. It’s a terrible story, and you have to feel for her family who are grasping for answers about why this would happen to her.…

My Twelve Best Aussie Photos of 2012

Despite a few setbacks, overall 2012 was a fantastic year for me. This showed through my photos; I took an incredible number (roughly 14,000 according to Lightroom) because I took a lot of opportunities to travel, both within Australia and abroad. Much of my travel within Australia was around South East Queensland, which was great…

Travel Massive: Massive Reasons Why You Should Go

When you live in Australia, sometimes it can feel like you live on the wrong end of the world. There always seem to be events that just aren’t feasible to go to because of the sheer distance you would have to travel. For instance, I just spent 50 hours in transit to get from Brisbane…

We All Dislike Travel Sometimes

Everyone has those moments. The moments where the adventure has become a nightmare that you just don’t want to deal with anymore. Why did you decide to do this again? Wouldn’t it be nice to sleep in your own bed, surrounded by the known, with everything part of a standard routine? I had that moment…

This Car Drives on Water, Right? My GPS Says It Does…

Yesterday, three tourists drove their car into Moreton Bay in an attempt to get to North Stradbroke Island. Why? Because their GPS directed them there. Yes, I’m serious. They didn’t actually drive into the water…but from what I understand, they were driving through gluggy mud trying to find the road to the island when their rented Hyundai Getz…

Do I Go Back Or Do I Go Somewhere New?

Every time you book a trip, there is a choice. Do you go back somewhere you’ve been before or head off somewhere new? Sure, for a lot of people this choice doesn’t even register. Why go somewhere you’ve already seen? Surely it’s changed and just isn’t as good as it used to be. Plus, there’s…

Twenty Eleven in Numbers

After writing the summary of my travels in 2011 and reading A Dangerous Business’ year by the numbers, I got a bit curious, so I did a bit of adding up and came up with the following stats on how 2011 treated me. Flights: 18 Long haul flights: 9 Miles flown: 59222 (94755.2km) Airports: 9…
