Almost a year ago I graduated with a Bacehlor of Journalism, but now I’m a travel agent.
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.
Taking the leap of faith to start traveling on your own can be quite daunting, especially when heading to a foreign country for the first time. I can say from experience that the environment you surround yourself in can make or break a trip, especially when you don’t have someone to fall back on during a tough time. So to help you decide where to go on your first solo ‘vacay’, here’s a list of some of the friendliest countries in the world to make sure it’s a good one!
Whilst exploring the States, I often couldn’t help but compare certain places to parts of Australia. Of course every destination is unique, but I liked to observe similarities and thought it would be fun to share my thoughts on what parts of Australia are most similar to those in America.
The Labor Day long weekend rolled around and I thought of no better way to see out the Australian summer months then to head to some of the nicest coastlines Oz has to offer. The Mornington Peninsula surrounds the eastern side of Port Phillip Bay and is a favorite holiday spot for many Melbournians for a reason.
It’s always one of the biggest questions people ask me about travel, and for good reason. Flight’s can be expensive. And if not, the cheap options can be dodgy and take 31 hours to get anywhere because of multiple stops along the way. Having always booked my own flights, and always searching for a bargain, I’ve created some of my own techniques that have saved me hundreds of dollars.
Having traveled to so many other cities around the world, I seem to forget to truly appreciate my home city. So I decided to take a day off to explore Melbourne as I would in any other city; as a tourist. Armed with my iPhone 6 and a travelers attitude in mind, I took to the streets and grew to love Melbourne even more than I already did.
Melbourne (pronounced Mel-bin) is my home city and is still one of my favorite cities in the world. It’s alternative feel, abundance of parks and public art and diverse culture makes it extremely unique. Not only has it been voted the most livable city in the world for many years in a row, but it was just voted the friendliest city in the world as well. It’s also known as the sporting capital of the world. And who better to give you some tips for visiting the fashion and sporting capital of Australia than a local, right?
