WELCOME TO QUEENSTOWN

So those that follow me on social media will know that I’m now living in Queenstown, New Zealand. A lot of people have been messaging me about it, asking how it is, how easy is it to get a job, and what is there to do. So I’ve made it into one blog post, to…

WORKING HOLIDAY VISA – NEW ZEALAND

New Zealand is one of the countries you can choose to do a working holiday visa (some countries are exempt). The tiny country, split between two islands, is only a three and a half hour flight from Australia, in the Southwestern Pacific Ocean. With volcanoes, waterfalls, snowy mountains, glaciers and black sand beaches, it’s not…

REVIEW: DJI MAVIC AIR

Around a year ago, I jumped on the drone bandwagon, purchasing a DJI Phantom 3 drone for my travels. Although it was a big drone, and not the most ideal or obvious choice for travelling, it was good nonetheless. But, the longer I had it, the less I used it, and the more of a…

TIPS FOR TRAVELLING THE EAST COAST

Heading to Australia soon? You’re going to want to do the East Coast. It’s a popular backpacker route, that nearly every backpacker that has been in Australia has done. And there’s a reason why…it’s amazing! Having done it myself a couple of times, here’s some tips.  1. DO IT THE PROPER WAY, NOT THE CHEAP…

HOW TO SPEND 3 DAYS IN BRISBANE

Brisbane is often mistaken as being boring with backpackers. They often think nothing is there. It’s probably one of the least known cities along the East Coast, with Sydney, Melbourne and Cairns taking the limelight. I was one of those backpackers. But in actual fact, it’s an upcoming city, full of culture, with lots to…

SECOND YEAR VISA FOR AUSTRALIA

You’ve probably been travelling Australia for a few months, and decided you love it so much, you want to stay for another year. A working holiday visa lasts 12 months once you enter Australia. You don’t have to spend the full 12 months in Australia, but that is a waste in my opinion, as visa’s…

DECEMBER UPDATE

So in November, I announced I would be making more blog posts, and posting 3 days a week. Anyone that follows me, will know that hasn’t happened. No, I haven’t been lazy, I have a genuine reason. I left Queensland and my little apartment in Brisbane, packed up and moved to Western Australia. A little…

NOVEMBER – A NEW WAY OF DOING THINGS

November is finally here! This year is going so fast, and it’s bizarre to think I’ve been travelling for exactly 6 months today. Now, I’ve been useless with my blog lately. Apologies about that. I could say I’ve been having too much fun, but I’d be lying. I’ve been too busy working, then being too…

A ROAD TRIP TO THE GLASSHOUSE MOUNTAINS

We decided to leave Brisbane for a few days and head to Noosa, which is a couple of hours drive away from the city. We hired a car from Jucy World, which is something I recommend doing while travelling in Australia, if you haven’t got access to your own car. Having your own car allows…

TIPS FOR FINDING WORK IN AUSTRALIA AS A BACKPACKER

So you’ve got that Working Holiday Visa, planned a trip of a lifetime to Australia, but then reality kicks in and you realise if you want the travelling to continue, you’re going to have to work for it. A lot of travellers that go to Australia forget that it is a “working” holiday visa, and…
