In October 2017 I had the exciting opportunity to try out a company I have been yearning to try for so long, G Adventures! Galavanting our way across China, I share where we went, what we did and exactly what I thought about it.
Oahu is one of the most beautiful places on earth, and with too many activities to choose from, hopefully this list helps inspire your next trip to Hawaii.
Rooftop bars in Melbourne aren’t unique to this city, but they are infamous never-the-less. Kind of like New York’s pizza or Greece’s islands. They’re just better here.
In February I took a little trip along the Great Ocean Road with my mum as a late birthday present. When booking accommodation, I stumbled upon this beautiful bed & breakfast and whilst most hotels impress you with the photos and leave you disappointed on arrival, this place was quite the opposite. The photo’s did not do it justice.
There’s a reason Melburnians have flocked to this stunning location for decades and why tourism numbers are forever on the up. The charming peninsula is crowded with cute beachside towns all complete with calm beaches of white sand and crystal blue waters and cute fishing jetty’s dotted along the coastline.
Thailand is without a doubt one of the most visited countries in Asia and it’s continually growing in popularity.

Whilst Istanbul in itself is teeming with cultural, historic and interesting attractions, the rest of Turkey has much to offer international visitors. From easy day tours to overnight or weekend stays, there is an option for all tastes close by. This is a great way to utilise ones time, whilst adding depth to a prolonged holiday in Istanbul. People like Bonnie Meyer, a university student from the Gold Coast, Australia had no idea just how diverse the country is. “I didn’t know much about Turkey before going, I absolutely loved it when I arrived though,” she said. She spent more than a week in Turkey with Istanbul as her base. “If you had the time I would recommend staying a little longer and doing more day trips or even spending time in another city or town,” Meyer said.
