Nullarbor Traveller: where the journey IS the experience

In 10 days, I swam with sea lions and dolphins, climbed a 52-meter tree, sunbathed with kangaroos on whiter-than-snow sand beaches, crossed the longest straight road in Australia and drove more than 3,000 kilometers (or 1,800 miles). I fell asleep...

Postcard from Rottnest Island

It's hard to believe that the paradise-like Rottnest Island was once an Aboriginal prison, an internment camp and a military fortress. However, some forward-thinking tourism official saw the light and the island was turned into an A-class nature...

The Down Under edition comes to an end

Nothing in Australia went how I meant it to go. But, then again, I suppose it’s worked out better than I could have imagined. Either way, everyone said it would "change my life" (whatever that's supposed to mean--doesn't every day change your life?)...

Postcard from the streets of Fitzroy

If I hadn't lived in laid-back, beachy St Kilda, I would have lived in Fitzroy. The hipster cafes, the trendy bars, the crazy amount of vintage stores...and the street art. In the main roads, on the side streets, in the alleys: works of art with...

The Blue Mountains: a sensory experience

The Blue Mountains is a flurry of activity for the senses, an expanse of natural beauty and real ingredients and small country towns. An easy drive from the hustle and bustle of Sydney, it’s a beautiful place to breathe in the relaxed lifestyle and...

Postcard from Sculptures by the Sea

My favorite type of art isn't a classic painting or sculpture stuck in a museum, collecting dust and inviting glazed-over stares. It's art that sparks a discussion, art that makes you question whether it is art, art that is out in the public eye for...
