Because what else is there to do at the rest stop on your Greyhound bus journey?!
We decided to stop for a few nights in Surfers Paradise, which we assumed (based on the name) that it was a chill, laid-back, surf town where we’d relax before heading to Fraser Island. What we got was a mini Australia version of Miami. It even looks like Miami when you’re driving in over the […]
On our last morning in Byron Bay, we woke up extremely early and set out to the Cape Bryon Lighthouse to watch the sunrise. If you have been paying attention in previous blog posts, you’ll know that this is the most eastern point of Australia. Thus, making us first to see the sunrise. I also […]
The word that best describes the coverage of the Olympics in Australia is CRAP. There is one local channel that shows event and mostly they’ve been showing the worthless events no one cares about (with the exception of swimming).

New Zealand is stunning and a must visit. I loooove it so much!! Here are my thoughts on the country, in a nutshell. Phrases: Sweet As (awesome), Kia Ora (hello; Maori origin), If everything turns to custard (our Milford Sound bus driver kept saying this and I loved this!) Fun Facts: New Zealand sources of […]
