The Dole Plantation was one of the first places I visited in Oahu, Hawaii. Who knew that a pineapple plantation would be so popular and so interesting? I was completely swept away with the history and the information that was held by this plantation.
Did you know that Waikiki in Hawaii is home to the world’s largest passenger submarine? Who knew that this island paradise had the capability to take 64 people under the waves?! Well I didn’t until I stumbled across Atlantis Submarines and boy, do they know how to show you the magic that is under the sea.
Sure, Paris is just a perfect destination for honeymooners – the lights, the bistros, the wine, the baguette, the Eiffel Tower, and everything else. Still, when you think about it, what can you actually do in Paris? Take long walks and eat. There are some couples that would like their honeymoon to be filled with a bit more excitement than that. And because there are a lot of them, active honeymoons have become quite common. Couples that like surfing can expect quite a treat everywhere around the globe, especially in the Pacific region. Here are a few places that join romance and surfing in the best possible way.
When I travel overseas, I prefer to hire a car to explore my latest destination. I just find it so much easier to be able to go where I want and to see what I want. Not to mention it provides shelter from bad weather, a place to put all of my things and a place to charge my phone and camera.
Hiring a car isn’t for everyone, but sometimes it is just the fear of not knowing how to hire a car that stops people from doing it. Hopefully the below tips will help you feel more confident to hire a car on your next adventure.
2017 is here and life is starting to get back into the normal routine. The New Year is all about making resolutions and a ‘new year, new me’ attitude. Inspiration is what keeps our resolutions and dreams alive. One of my New Year resolutions is to travel more, so to help me with this resolution I have compiled a list of the top 17 travel bloggers to watch in 2017. These guys are the ones that have inspired me to travel overseas and to explore my own backyard. I must also note that there are so many more amazing travel bloggers out there than just the 17 below.
Ah, 2016. What a bizarre year it has been. Pokémon Go took over the world and we lost countless big name celebrities. As I sit here and think about this year, I realise that it just wasn’t that great to me. Like it wasn’t bad, it just was not great. It is what I think of as a ‘stepping stone’ year; a year that will get me to somewhere better. I hope.
As a travel blogger there are two main goals I constantly attempt to achieve. One is to get people to travel the world and the other to get people to say ‘yes’ to amazing opportunities that present themselves. Think of Jim Carrey’s movie ‘Yes Man’. At the moment, I feel like I have failed these goals.
Majority of my Friday nights are spent watching Netflix and going to bed early but I made a new mission to myself – to go out and explore my hometown, Canberra, as much as I can. I spend my time dreaming and planning trips of far off distant lands but sometimes I forget that I live in a beautiful city as well. So when my Mum sent me a text asking if I wanted to go to the National Museum of Australia’s Origins night, I was in.
Have you ever travelled somewhere to raise funds for something that needs your help? Maybe something like cancer research? Cancer is something that has touched every one of us; it doesn’t discriminate against rich or poor, English speaker or non-English speaker, white skinned or dark skinned. It is something that tears families apart but some families are choosing to create a legacy for the people they have lost to this terrible disease.
