This post was paid for. Here’s a question for you: Where in the USA is the loneliest road according to Time Life Magazine (and that for the 30th year)? And what held the USA together in the 19th century when west and east were still pretty much divided by huge areas of mountains and deserts? […]
This post was sponsored. I was at the Grand Canyon and had only 24 hours to explore its unreal beauty and what did I do? I laid down for five minutes and woke up half an hour before sunset – a must see at the Gran Canyon. I raced from bus to bus, asking each […]
Do you know what I cannot stand about travel in the USA? The public transport. Or the lack thereof. New Zealand wasn’t a prime example either but at least it wasn’t so big. What is a solo traveller to do when leaving the driving licence at home but having driving experience that amounts to zero […]

This post about Nullarbor Traveller was sponsored. The last two days there were no hikes whatsoever, it was all culinary and sensory experiences as well as beaches. After escaping the bush fires, we had a pretty nice end to an awesome tour with Nullarbor Traveller, but it’s not over yet until I’ve told you all […]
This post about Nullarbor Traveller was sponsored. The air permeated with the smell of burnt wood, covering the forests in a dense mist and tinting the sun a bloody red. This was not a normal morning and the signs were unmistakable. Even without the tiny pieces of ashes flying about, we knew: the raging bush […]
This post was sponsored. Since we received favouring tailwinds, we made it to Cape LeGrand National Park by afternoon on my tour with Nullarbor Traveller. Arriving after dark is not unusual and so we were indeed lucky and seized the beautiful day to relax on the beach. Donning our best beach wear we walked out […]
This post about Nullarbor Traveller was sponsored.A long drive lay ahead of us. Ten hours to be exact and there was not much to see unless you count the fact that we were crossing the large treeless plain that got to be known by its Latin name nullarbor – no trees. Of course, we had […]
This post about Nullarbor Traveller was sponsored. On this cloudy day, we headed over to watch the wind tear up the ocean and send enormous waves crashing against the shore. The spot we picked for starters was a memorial for a nun that had been washed away by a king wave when she stood on […]
This Nullarbor Traveller post was sponsored. I’ve noticed my nails are starting to turn yellow with grime and I make a quick run for the showers in our new camp on our Nullarbor Traveller tour. We are in the middle of nowhere but at least have eco friendly facilities – which means a kinda self […]
This post was sponsored. Waving goodbye to my latest group, I joined the private Xplore Eyre luxury tour by Australian Wildlife Adventures together with another member of our former group to discover all that the peninsula has to offer. And it had a lot to offer, which we would see in the following two days.
This post was sponsored. Even today we were not quite rid of the clouds but, never mind, they made for an even more phenomenal sunrise over the dark silhouette of the King’s Canyon as we struggled up the Cardiac Hill and onto the start of the four hour long Rim Walk. Piled up rocks, layered […]
This post was sponsored. Deviating from the regular tour plan, our guide wanted to give us a little extra treat and first let us watch a spectacular sunrise over the Cobber Pedy hills and together with our incredible photogeneity we had an amazing time at our impromptu photo shoot. The model at the next stop, […]
Are you planning an Australian road trip? Australia basically screams for long drives and road trips. But even so, it’s not as easy as pie in such a vast and dangerous country as Australia. While keeping in mind the essentials, such as having enough fuel, supplies and staying on the roads, there is a little […]
Ah, the Great Ocean Road drive! Impressive limestone boulders rising up from the raging sea, protruding out along the rugged coastline like warning fingers, the 12 Apostles are a sure tourist magnet for every Great Ocean Road drive. Everyone flocks to this beautiful scenery to get a glimpse of what is one of the most […]
This post was sponsored by Groovy Grape Tours. Like tree bark creaking in the wind, the cries of the red headed Gang Gang welcomed us on our morning hike up the Grampians. Over rocks and stones we clumbered, holding on tightly to odd shaped formations and finding a grip in small crevasses while we were […]
