Finding My Love for Travel on a USA Adventure Tour

“I’m going to travel the world” five tiny insignificant words that meant nothing to anyone but me. When I touched down in Manchester airport the cold was bitter and the rain poured. I’m yet to arrive at Manchester airport without the heavens being open. I recall feeling the warmth of being back home but I also remember a heavy sense of realisation.

Nine Month Travel Reflection – Living in Australia

As I stretch my gaze over Lavender Bay and across the Sydney Harbour, I can’t believe that it’s been nine months since we touched down in Australia.

Nursing in Australia – My Experience

I have a question for you. Would you consider working abroad in Australia or would you rather quit your job and just travel? I decided to go for it and start nursing in Australia during my Working Holiday Visa but I know that decision isn’t for everyone.

We did it!

Over 4000km later we can finally scribble off ‘East Coast Roadie’ from our bucket list and I’ve got to say it feels amazing! What an incredible month we’ve had on the road and I’m so sad that’s it’s now come to an end, can we start all over again? I must admit I had no idea how I would handle ‘van life’ for an entire month, but I can’t believe how much I loved it!

If you are one of the lucky ones who follow me on twitter then you’ll know I’ve been harping on about how I’ve not had much time to blog on this road trip. I’ve also been talking about a two-week update that I was hoping to post about a week ago now! Here’s the thing, I love writing and starting this blog has brought me so much enjoyment and fulfilment so far. And that’s exactly what I want it to continue doing.

So what really is moving to Australia like? We are here update you three months in!

Australia is one of those countries that’s on most people’s bucket list right? It’s often a big one because, yes it’s so far away, from anywhere else, in the world! I can certainly say that it was probably my biggest country that I wanted to tick off the bucket list and even more make it my home for some time!
