Melbourne to Port Douglas

It’s been over two months since I moved to Port Douglas, and I still can’t believe how quickly time has flown past. I was rather hesitant to move up here at first, as Melbourne had grown on me over the past six months. But alas, if I wanted to extend my visa for another year, I had no choice but to head north and find regional work. Which is how I found myself in the little gem that is Port Douglas.

My First Couch-surfing Experience: British Columbia

Last month I had the chance to couchsurf in one of the most beautiful cities I’ve ever traveled to: Vancouver, B.C. Before this trip, I usually stayed in either hostels or airbnb’s while traveling. Since I was on a tighter budget this time around, my friend and I decided to try out couch-surfing, and I’m beyond glad I did! Not only did I have the chance to meet some of the most generous and kind-hearted people, I made really close friends who I still keep in contact with.

First Backpacking Trip Abroad: PERU!

This August, I was determined to go on a trip abroad with my boyfriend to either Central or South America. I was limited on both time and money, and had only three weeks to spare. So after hours of googling, we arrived at a decision: Peru. (Scrolling through hundreds of photos of baby alpacas sold it for me). Next step was to begin planning our 3-week itinerary.
