Bali may have claimed the spotlight for Indonesia, but there are at least 18,000 other islands and countless other destinations worth exploring in this country. Komodo National Park is one of them. Its magnificent landscapes, exotic wildlife, and diverse underwater world make Komodo one of the best places in Indonesia to explore
I don’t know about you, but when I lay eyes on a photo of a devastatingly gorgeous landscape, that place tends to catapult to the upper reaches of my bucket list. In fact, I have a pretty solid track record of designing trips around these vistas. What can I say,
I’m not proud of the fact that it took me nearly 3 years to make it down to Canberra for the first time (well, that’s excluding the time I got stranded on the tarmac at Canberra Airport when I first arrived in Australia – that doesn’t really count, right?). Somehow, I managed
The very last day of my summer Euro-trip had me in Verona, a small city in northern Italy that I’ve never had much desire to visit. You know, the one that’s famous for Juliette’s balcony, under which Romeo would stand and bellow out sweet nothings to her? (That’s how the
It may not be one of Australia’s most renowned regions, but Queensland’s Sunshine Coast is well worth a visit. Spanning from Caloundra up to Great Sandy National Park, it’s delightfully low on tourists (except for Noosa), boasts reasonably warm winters (think 70F/20C), and offers both beaches and mountains. Does it
Those subscribed to my newsletter or follow my Facebook page have already heard the news, but for everyone else out there… After over a year of constant stress, document chasing, and other administrative bullcrap, my Aussie visa process is finally over. I’M NOW A PERMANENT RESIDENT OF AUSTRALIA! Hold Up…
I don’t know about you, but I never heard much about the Dolomites until I really started getting into traveling and hiking. So if you’re like me, then here’s a quick catch-me-up: The Dolomites are often referred to as the Italian Alps or the “pale mountains”. Situated in the northeast corner of Italy,
It’s widely known that July and August are the busiest, craziest, most touristy months in Europe, and that for an optimal experience there, you best avoid this time of year. But what if that’s the only time you have to travel? Is it even worth braving the hellish crowds to
Venice wasn’t part of the plan when I crafted my itinerary for Italy, but when my Danish friends spontaneously decided to head there the day after we finished our stint in the Dolomites, I couldn’t resist tagging along. I LOVE VENICE SO MUCH!! In fact, it is now my most-visited city
Would you believe me if I told you that my recent 3.5 week trip to France and Italy only cost me $411? Well it’s true! Obviously if we’re looking at raw spend, my expenses totaled way more than that amount. But once you factor in various savings, such as taking a
I'm Lindsay! Not too long ago, I found myself on the Corporate American conveyor belt: an ivy league education, followed by massive student loan debt and an investment banking job in NYC. I didn't know what I wanted to do with my life, but I knew this wasn't it - so one day I summoned the courage to quit.
Since then, I've taken a more active approach to life, living deliberately and slowly figuring out my path. Currently living in Australia, I blog about outdoor adventures in beautiful places around the world that don't cost a lot of money. Read more about my story here.
