Australia Roadtrip: Western Australia Food

Five months ago, Adam, Nicole, and I kicked off our two-month road trip along the southern coast of Australia. During the trip, we honed our camping skills, battled swarms of insects, visited some of the country’s most beautiful beaches, and of course, ate some delicious food. This post is the final in the road trip […]

Australia Roadtrip: Western Australia

In 2006, my youngest sister and I popped into the pizza shop beside our hostel in Sydney to get a quick take away dinner. A friendly 20-something heard our American accents and quickly struck up a typical traveler’s conversation with us. “What, you’re only here for three weeks?! Man, you gotta make it to WA […]

Quick Guide: How to Survive the Nullarbor

There were a lot of things I’d read about before my arrival in Australia, but the Nullarbor Plain was not one of them. Even after living in the country for eight months, no one had ever breathed a word of the nearly treeless landscape to me. Then, just a week before Adam and I planned […]

Australia Roadtrip: South Australia’s beautiful beaches, gorgeous skies, and charming towns

Sometimes when you travel, you enjoy the journey so much that you take in every moment, focusing completely on the present. As beautiful as the scenery is, you compose and commit the snapshots to memory instead of using a camera. While you normally scribble keywords and phrases to jog your mind about what you experienced […]

Australia Roadtrip: South Australia

After visiting Tasmania and Victoria on the Oz Roadtrip, Adam, Nicole, and I continued west to South Australia. I had already fallen in love with SA’s Adelaide and Coober Pedy ten months prior, so I couldn’t wait to see what else South Australia had to offer. As it turns out, I loved South Australia so […]

Australia Roadtrip: Victoria

Three months ago, Adam, Nicole, and I set off on a 2-month road trip around the southern coast of Australia. Until now, I’ve only been able to share about the 2-week trip to Tasmania and the trials and tribulations of living out of a van for two months. Now, I’m ready to pick up where […]

Heather the Whizbanger

In the last seven weeks, I’ve traveled 13,000 kilometers around Australia. Somewhere around the 9,000 km mark, I learned that I am a whizbanger. At a national park in Western Australia, a park volunteer made a mad dash toward our van as soon as we arrived at the overnight camping area she looks after. “Where’s […]

Australia Roadtrip: Tasmania food and cafes

This is the 9th post in the “my waist line is expanding while my bank account is decreasing” series. If there’s anything that can capture my attention more than a cute baby wombat in the wild, it’s the promise of a good meal — and then delivering on that promise. Cute baby wombat in the […]

Australia road trip: Tasmania and nature

Tasmania, Australia’s “Natural State”, is home to a handfull of national parks, with one covering a sizeable portion of the island in the south west. In addition to the major parks everyone visits, we visited a few other sites based on the recommendation of residents. Some offered butt-kicking hikes, most rewarded us with beautiful views, […]

Australia Road trip: 2 weeks in Tasmania

I almost didn’t make it to Tasmania. I’m sure when most people plan a trip to Australia, they give the small island a miss. After all, it requires more time and money to venture off the mainland and explore Australia’s “natural state”. Before I arrived last year, however, I promised myself that I would visit […]
