Island Inspiration (Part 1 of 2)

“Meet me where the sky touches the sea” – Jennifer Donnelly

*A TWO-PART EAST COAST ISLAND SPECIAL*

As we travelled Australia’s east coast, it became clear that some of the best days out are a short ferry ride away to nearby islands. Enjoying an island day out doesn’t have to be an expensive or time-consuming option. In this 2-Part Special, read about the wildlife you can experience so close to large cities, a cost-saving itinerary for your day out and our preferred place to stay back on the mainland. This is Part 1: Continue reading “Island Inspiration (Part 1 of 2)”

* A VEGAN SPECIAL *

7 easy and healthy meals for life on the road

 

One gas bottle, a two-ring hob and three meals a day. We recently spent no less than 6 weeks living in a hi-top campervan, a converted Hiace with just about enough room to stand up in. With just one medium saucepan and one medium frying pan to play with, we’ve become experts at easy campervan meals that require limited resources. Our road trip was full of natural beauty, long days exploring and thousands of kilometres of new roads. When we stopped for a meal, we wanted it to be simple to make, but we also wanted to avoid junk food, fast food or processed food. This month, we’re sharing our top seven go-to meals for time spent on the road with a campervan kitchen.Β  Continue reading “Meals on Campervan Wheels”

Dingoes and Driving

Fraser Island in a day from Noosa Heads.

“Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Fraser Island, Australia

As the largest sand island in the world, for a very unique style of adventure, get yourself to Fraser Island. Just off Australia’s east coast, it’s ideal for lovers of wildlife, epic drives and memorable experiences. Staying here for a while can get costly so we want to show you how we did it in just one day. We’ll also recommend a natural pool in Noosa Heads with a touch of magic, if you don’t mind a spot of rock climbing! Pack your camera, hold on tight and admire the rather bumpy but incredible views of Fraser Island and it’s surroundings. Continue reading “Dingoes and Driving”

A Pristine Paradise

Our romantic multi-beach break in the Whitsundays.

“Let the waves hit your feet and the sand be your seat” – Unknown

The Whitsundays, Australia

Considered to have some of the most stunning beaches in the world, the Whitsundays are nothing short of picture-perfect. On Queensland’s east coast, this region consists of many mainland must-dos and 74 idylic islands. No visit to Australia would be complete without time to explore and marvel at the natural beauty held here. This Christmas, we enjoyed 7 nights of Whitsunday magic as part of our road trip from New South Wales. Here’s what we loved and why we recommend this location for every style of traveller.

Being Lost Is Just The Beginning

This is my expressive, lengthy and very personal diary on being lost and finding a way to make that work for you.

“You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestation of your own blessings.” – Elizabeth Gilbert

*ANNIVERSARY SPECIAL*

Today, to celebrate the first anniversary, I would love to share with you where the idea came from in the hope of inspiring others to pursue their dreams and to never give up hope. People often say to me ‘I’d love your life.’ Well, I want YOU to love YOUR life. And that is the whole point behind Get Up, Get Out There and Get Lost.

A Stopover City

What to do in Hong Kong on a two-night city break.

“The mind is everything. What you think you become.” – Buddha

Hong Kong, China

If you’re doing a long haul journey, like the one we just did from the UK to the land down-under, often these routes require a stop. If you’re already paying for the flight, I say grab two or three days somewhere you may not have visited otherwise. This is what Hong Kong was for me. It’s a destination I may not have considered as a trip in itself, however a ticket to Australia with Cathay Pacific meant I could stop and see this little piece of the world, almost for nothing. If you are interested in learning more about stopover cities, check out the airlines that get you to and from your destination and their respective hubs to see where your next adventure could take you as an interesting side trip. This month, join me in Hong Kong as I share with you what we spent our stopoverΒ doing. Continue reading “A Stopover City”
