SAILING THE WHITSUNDAYS

Apparently the Whitsundays have the best beaches in Australia and for many visitors to Queensland, a cruise out to the Whitsundays is up there with diving the Great Barrier Reef and visiting the Irwin’s at Australia Zoo. Despite coming from the side of Australia that actually has the best beaches in Australia (and I’m totally

EP 24: ULURU KATA TJUTA NATIONAL PARK

Watching this video still gives my spine a little tingle – I can’t believe that we made it to Uluru! The rock is so much bigger and imposing in person but we hope you get a sense of the place and the space that it inhabits. As I had mentioned in my write up on

ULURU-KATA TJUTA NATIONAL PARK

I still remember that day. My hands gripped the steering wheel as I came to a slow halt in front of the turnoff on the Stuart Highway, and I turned to Siu and asked, “so what do you reckon? Should we go to Uluru?” We both hesitated and didn’t know what would lay ahead on

JOURNEY TO THE RED CENTRE: PART 3

The middle of Australia was everything I thought it would be and more. As an Australian seeing Uluru up close and personal, it was awe inspiring and surprisingly emotional. A landmark I have seen time and time again, yet never did I think I would be standing here looking up at it in person. After

JOURNEY TO THE RED CENTRE: PART 1

A colorful graffiti covered doorway.

I had those butterflies in my stomach as Siu started Bea’s engine and we backed out of our driveway from what was our home for the past 12 months. Our time in Sydney had gone in a blink of an eye and was not without its ups and downs. Although we were relieved to be

EP21: OVERNIGHT HIKING AT MT JAGUNGAL

Our first overnight hike in Kosciuszko was a breeze, so we decided to take it up a notch and try a multiday hike through the cool sounding Jagungal Wilderness Area. There were no tears and no tantrums on this adventure, but a lot more of this stunning alpine area to see.

FINDING JAPAN IN SYDNEY

Japan has to be one of my all time favourite destinations for its mixture of traditional Japanese  culture, history and ultra modernness. Since we are doing our best to reign in our overseas travel as we save as much as we can, I’ve gotten pretty creative with sating my wanderlust tendencies and taken to coming
