the great ocean road | a day trip along the coast

I thought I had an idea of what the Great Ocean Road would be like. You know, Pinterest does a good job of telling you what to do and see, and when you travel throughout Australia you hear so many different things about the magnificent drive. “Don’t miss the apostles!” “Stop and stay somewhere along…

7 day road trip around tasmania, australia

When we first arrived in Tasmania in September, knowing that in the near future we would need to “settle down” (just a little bit), we decided to hit the road for seven nights of Tasmanian exploration before any adulting was to happen. Exploring Tassie by campervan (or car) is the best way to get around…

bay of fires, tasmania | red rocks & the greenest ocean

Free camping, tractor traffic jams, and white sand beaches sprawling for kilometres with not a footprint laid into…

melbourne to thredbo, australia | coastal drive + camp spots

There’s a feeling that I will never be able to put words to. It’s a feeling that actually makes it hard for me to write about my trip to Australia. The feeling of absolute bliss and travel wanderlust that makes you long for that moment to happen again and again, but it’s also the feeling…
