Where to Stay: Sydney’s WakeUp!

June 8, 2011

I can honestly not say enough fabulous things about this hostel.  In my 4 month’s down under I stayed in this amazing hostel for a whopping 25 nights!  My length of stay isn’t even considered to be the longest.  I met people there that had stayed for months at a time and truly made the […]

And we are homeward bound…

Returning to Sydney for my remaining 4 days was bittersweet.  On the one hand I was excited to be back in the city I love and on the other I knew that my adventure was coming to an end and I was homeward bound.  As my train pulled into the station I had the same […]

Meet me at the hospital cause I don’t want to be alone

May 5, 2011

To say that my six days in Melbourne were spent in a way I’d rather not relive is to really state the obvious.  Didn’t think I’d be telling any of my friends to meet me at the hospital, but turns out, 3 days into my time in Australia’s culture capital – Melbourne – I was […]

Tom, Lionel (the boys I met during my Southwest coast Road Trip) and I hit the road in their station wagon (which was of course filled to the brim) on Friday, March 25.  After staying in their Adelaide mansion, Callum, Karen’s husband, did a quick check-over of the car, and then gave us the thumbs […]

A Few Days in an Adelaide Mansion

April 23, 2011

I was welcomed to Adelaide by Karen, the aunt of my friend, Scott (from back home).  She came to pick me up at the bus station after my Nullarbor Traveller tour and was so accommodating and hospitable.  She brought me back to her place in Glenelg, an affluent neighbourhood just outside of Adelaide.  To say […]

WARNING: ANOTHER LONG POST! I had one last afternoon free in the city of Perth, after arriving from my Southwest Coast roadtrip, but I was just so absolutely exhausted and knew that I better rest up for the tour I was set to begin the next day.  This upcoming adventure was my Nullarbor Traveller tour, […]

So I’ve been slacking on the updating.  Well… deal with it.  In the past 10 days, I’ve slept in a proper bed once, and have had access to the internet for maybe a total of 5hours (MAYBE?).   Anyways, back to the blogging… I arrived into Perth on March 3rd from my Western Exposure tour to […]
