Australia

I have never been one to say no to a road trip, and I know that should I ever head to Australia, ‘by car’ will be my way to explore it. Where better to improve my driving skills, than in a country so big and empty, that an angry kangaroo or a super long road-train would be my only enemies?
I dream about arriving in Sydney or Melbourne, haggling my way …

It’s the perspective that can turn any boring every-day thing into the most spectacular experience ever - like the bird’s-eye view of your hometown when you approach the airport by plane, or slowly cycling along a road that you usually zoom along in a car or bus. Suddenly you become conscious of details you never noticed before, and somehow this place you thought you knew, seems unfamiliar, new and exciting.
Although I …

Melbourne is arguably, and most rightly so, one of the top most liveable cities in the world! I lived there for nearly three years and it is definitely a place that stole my heart – I’ll always think about it with affection and hope of returning. One of the many reasons why I love it is that it is so diverse with a multitude of suburbs that would suit any …

Perth has gone from a small country town to a mining boom town and holds the title of the world’s most isolated city; but what you will find in and around Perth will take you by surprise and leave you with a lasting impression. Growing up here I have spent a lot of time exploring the city and visiting the local holiday areas. If you are travelling out west, I would …

The land down under is a big, beautiful place full of diversity and culture with a touch of danger thrown in for excitement. While Australia may be notorious for its vast array of land and sea animals that can kill you, it also provides stunning views and entertainment that you can’t get anywhere else. From Perth to Sydney and everywhere in between, Australia’s beauty truly is rich and rare. Here …

The summer in Australia is raging hard, fast and hot at the moment. The beauty of the glorious Aussie summer brings the stereotypical care-free and sunshine drenched beach lifestyle, but there’s no time to beach bum around. With the temperatures soaring, don’t waste time lying on the beach topping up your tan. Get involved with the hundreds of water adventures available and indulge your inner explorer with some out-of-this–world underwater …

One of the reasons I keep coming back to Sydney, Australia, is its unique way of balancing urban life and nature: with its stunning coastline, vast parks and secret hideaways, Sydney doesn’t make me feel oppressed the way other metropolises do. Sometimes, though, it feels good to get properly, completely out of the city—and spend some time surrounded by nothing but Australia’s exuberant wilderness.
Getting around this continent of prodigious dimensions without a …

I’m not going to lie, I am a breakfast addict. I love it. It gets me out of bed in the morning and adds the sunshine into my morning even if I wake up to the traditional UK weather. Being a newly returning Brit from Australia, not only is the rainy and cold weather getting me down, but so is the cafe culture. The cafes and breakfast spots in Australia …

 Bondi, Manly, Bronte… The gorgeous beaches that made Sydney famous the world over share the same characteristics: long strips of golden sand, voluptuous waves, turquoise to indigo shades of water… and also, sadly, a tendency to get atrociously crowded on beautiful summer days.
And yet, with over 100 beaches sprinkled around the city, Sydney is definitely full of other options for the Travelette on the hunt for secluded coves, quiet swimming …

I’ve never been to Las Vegas: the legendary city of sin. Where the city never sleeps and is run on neon lights, casinos, glitter, razzle dazzle and Black Jack… so when given the chance to experience Australia’s answer to Vegas, I of course jumped at it with gusto: gambling, lights, luxury… The Crown Casino sounded like something I could be down with!

Truth be told, I am not a big gambler. …
