Great Ocean Road

The Great Ocean Road is one of my absolute favourites in Australia. The road starts in Torquay and ends in Allansford, near Warnambool, passing some absolutely amazing coast line with various highlights: Loch Ard Gorge, London Bridge, the Arch, the Twelve Apostels and plenty more! Last time I was in that area, I did aContinue reading “Great Ocean Road”

Sydney Harbour

The Sydney Harbour and skyline as seen from Macquarie’s Point. Love the view! 🙂 It always feels special gazing upon the beautifully shaped Sydney Opera House and the stunning harbour that adorns this huge metropole. I’ve been to Sydney a few times now, but I’ll never not like this view. This view is also special toContinue reading “Sydney Harbour”

The Grampians

The Grampians is a mountain area/national park in Victoria, Australia. I visited the national park during a tour along the Great Ocean Road. We hiked for a few hours and about halfway we stopped for a lunch break where we had this amazing view! In the bottom right of the photo you can see some buildings,Continue reading “The Grampians”

Hostelling series: experiences

Some people can’t stand the thought of sharing a room with some random stranger, other people love staying in hostels. When I travel, I mostly stay in hostels. It’s generally cheaper and it’s a great way to meet other people. I’ve had great experiences and not so great experiences (like everyone, I’m sure). Sometimes it’sContinue reading “Hostelling series: experiences”


Nah, I’m just kidding. 🙂 Not bluffing, but definetly looking at the Bluff of Victor Harbor here. In this post, I shared a photo taken from the Bluff looking into the next bay, and now you have one looking at it from the beach. South Australia is a very dry state and this area is noContinue reading “Bluff-ing”

Sydney NYE fireworks

One of the items on my bucket list was to be in Sydney for New Year’s Eve to see the amazing fireworks. As 2011 was close to making way to 2012, I was there sitting near Macquarie’s Point making this dream come true. It was very busy in the city that day. I had doneContinue reading “Sydney NYE fireworks”

My big outback adventure

One of the things I really wanted to do while in Australia, was head into the outback. But to go into the outback on your own seems rather foolish, especially for me since this was my first ‘big-far away-even off the trusted continent’-trip. Going into the outback on my own was never an option. ItContinue reading “My big outback adventure”

Orange is the new green

When in Sydney, please visit the Botanical Gardens. They are a delight to walk through. Every time I visited Sydney, I made sure to enjoy a walk through these beautiful gardens. And after you’ve seen everything, you can keep on walking towards Bennelong Point, where the Sydney Opera House is. I have no idea whatContinue reading “Orange is the new green”
