I’ve been wandering aimlessly for quite some time but this year – with a time limit, a budget (and no prospect of employment), and another person to consider – my planning and organisation skills have come into their own.
I’d like to think that the inordinate amount of time I spent researching this journey (and the ensuing trial and error of the first leg) may be of some benefit to other travellers. I intend to include: reviews and location guides; information for carry-on only packing (aka one bag travel); and my general observations on travelling.
It is also my hope that I will summon the courage to share this blog with my friends and family as a natural successor to the (not-so-regular-anymore) email updates that I have been sending out since first travelling to Australia in 2009. Many of these people are able to view my photos through social media but sometimes I need a few more words than a picture may speak.
