Will a Trip to the Northern Territory, Australia, kill you?

Posted on October 27, 2016

The first thing an Australian told me upon arrival in my Darwin hostel was “Everything in the ocean is trying to kill you, you won’t make it longer than five minutes”. Welcome to the Northern Territory, where everything is trying to kill you and each other! This is the land where the animals and some of the people are all kinds of cray cray. Where crocodiles eat bull sharks and snakes eat crocodiles. Where kangaroos have relationships with pigs and where flies would take over the country if they had a bigger brain. Welcome to the Northern Territory! Continue Reading

The Best Beaches of The Australian Westcoast

Posted on March 11, 2016

Most Australians have not visited the West Coast of their own country, so why should you? With only 11% percent of the Australian population living on this side of the country, it is remote and sometimes difficult to get to. But remote also means well-preserved, hardly polluted and abundant with wildlife. And the best part about it? The beaches! Next to having a couple of the most amazing beaches I have so far seen in the world, you will find that these beaches are less crowded than most east coast beaches and if you’re lucky, you might even find an empty one. The West Coast has another unique feature and that is its sunsets. With the way that the world rotates the North and West Coast get to see the sun drop behind the ocean every single night, usually accompanied by a beautiful array of colors. Quite a sight to see. So arm yourself with a vehicle and some great travel mates and start visiting a few of the world’s most beautiful beaches!

My Australian Road Trip Soundtrack

Posted on January 11, 2016

When you’re driving around a country the size of Australia, which is bigger than Europe in its entirety, a well-curated road trip playlist is a vital part of your journey. Any memorable road trip stands or falls with unique locations, inspiring people and flawless entertainment. Having driven from Darwin down to Perth and from Perth all the way to Melbourne and back up to Brisbane, I’ve gotten to know a thing or two about what it takes to keep you going (we’re talking 4000+ km’s). You need tunes to wake you up in the morning, tunes to remember all those great moments and tunes to enjoy the sunsets you drive past. And when all else fails and you’re sick of those songs, you will need some good podcasts. Continue Reading
