I recently embarked on my second road trip around the Hawaiian islands. Someday I will write about the epic adventures I had driving around the Big Island back in my pre-blog days (until then, this guide to trekking to Waimanu Valley will have to do). But now, let’s talk about everything


I already wrote about learning how to surf on Siargao, but there’s a whole lot more going on at this surf island than just hanging ten on Cloud 9 (see what I did there?). I’m pretty sure I wore my bathing suit the entire week I was on Siargao –


I know, I know – how dare I use such a clickbait-y title. Aren’t I just the worst? I’m pretty excited about this post because it’s not about how to save money TO travel – it’s about how to subsidize travel, travel cheaply, and save money while on the road. You


I can’t believe it took me nearly 32 years to take my first helicopter flight! I’ve been lucky enough to take a few scenic flights during my travels (over the Grand Canyon, Great Barrier Reef, and Milford Sound)… but those were all in small planes. The fact is, scenic flights by


After 26 months of vagabonding, I can now officially say that I am a Sydney resident! :: cue the gasps :: I just signed a lease on a 2-bedroom apartment in North Bondi, a quick 5 minute walk from the world-renowned Bondi Beach. And while it’s completely a pinch-me-I’m-dreaming kind


When you hear “Tulum”, does your mind go straight to street art? Don’t worry, I don’t think anyone’s does. Beaches, cenotes, and ruins, sure, but street art? Nah. Nevertheless, Tulum is absolutely teeming with street art. Aimlessly wandering the side streets off the highway through town is your best bet

Annual Recap

As usual, I didn’t make any concrete New Years resolutions for 2016. That’s why it’s a little funny that it sort of ended up being a year in which I unintentionally experienced a whole lot of new things. Though I didn’t set out to try 18 awesome new things in


The Kalalau Trail is exhilarating, exhausting, terrifying, drop-dead stunning, and positively one of the best hikes you could ever hope to embark on. I tend to operate on a *throw myself into it and see what happens* basis, often without pausing to consider whether I can actually succeed (after all,

Monthly Recap

Oh I LOVED December so much! This month I returned to the US for the first time in two years and it was every bit as magical and wonderful as I’d hoped it would be. First, I flew from Melbourne to Hawaii on a ridiculously cheap flight I booked back


When I left Australia last month bound for the US for the holidays, I had nothing planned in my life beyond the moment I stepped foot on my hometown’s train platform. I figured I’d cozy up at home for a bit and soak up all of the Christmas vibes while

    outdoor travel blogger
    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.
