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.
Ah, 2016. What a year!
As 2016 comes to an end, it is time to look ahead at what amazing countries are tipped to be the places to go in 2017…..
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.
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.
This is Through an Aussie’s Eyes first official blogging recognition! Woo! I can hear the crowd going wild now!!
Before I go any further about the Liebster Award, I want to thank and apologise to the wonderful Angie Briggs from Feet Do Travel! The reason for my apology is that it has taken me so long to get this post up. Sorry Angie! But thank you so much for the nomination and all of the support you have provided me and other travel bloggers especially with the running of the Feet Do Travel Facebook Group which is designed to bring travel bloggers together and to inspire them to reach for the stars. I love it. It really has helped me so much.

Happy birthday Queen Elizabeth!!
In Australia we celebrate the Queen’s birthday on the second Monday in June (well all states except for Western Australia…). This year Queen Elizabeth turned the big 9-0 – well her actually birthday is on the 21st of April but don’t let the facts get in the way of a good story. The Queen has travelled pretty much all over the world but in her old age she has chosen to stay in the merry old UK. In honour of the Queen Elizabeth’s birthday, here is a list of 10 awesome gifts to give a traveller.
As some of you may know, today is Australia Day (26 January). But what actually is Australia Day? Today isn’t just all about having a public holiday (a nice bonus though that was introduced in 1994), but it is a day that we can reflect upon our diverse society and landscape. A day we can think about all of the amazing achievements and what our future may hold for us. And even more exciting, a day for the new Australian citizens who can call themselves Australian after being conferred citizenship.
One of my goals in life is to inspire people to travel the world. Get them out of their comfort zone, experience different cultures, be immersed in a different language and see the many beautiful sights that the world has to offer. I want to be able to share the adventures I have had and the picturesque views that I have seen.
