July and August saw me escaping Sydney’s winter as much as I could manage. It’s by no means intolerable or even unpleasant (think 60F mostly-sunny

In what may have been the most spontaneous trip I’ve ever taken, last week I decided to join my good friend (and fellow travel blogger!) Marijs on a road trip from Sydney to Byron Bay. Both of us were eager to escape Sydney’s windy wintry weather and just wanted a
This isn’t a post I ever imagined I’d be publishing on my travel blog. This isn’t something I ever thought I’d actually do in my life. Yet here I am, reflecting on the healing session I had with a psychic medium back in May when I was in Melbourne. If
Admittedly I did very little research before rocking up to Yosemite National Park at the peak of summer this year. While everything worked out as it always does, and I had a fantastic time exploring this glorious natural playground, I feel like I could have saved myself some time and
If ever there was a place that was made for road tripping, it would be western USA. I always thought I’d have plenty of time to explore this part of my country when I eventually “settled” in California – I just never considered the possibility that I’d end up permanently
When I first started (and then promptly forgot about) this “perfect day” blog series, I wanted to document those rare magical days where I was out in the world doing various things that bring me joy, living in the flow, and just being enveloped in bliss from start to finish.
Welp, I think it’s safe to say that the more distracted I get with weekend trips, road trips, and other adventures, the worse I am about blogging and Instagramming and even reading. So these two months are pretty heavy on the adventure front, and much less so on most everything
If you’re looking for a weekend trip from Melbourne that isn’t the Great Ocean Road or one of the other usual suspects (lovely as they are, sometimes you just want something different, right?)… consider heading up to Mt. Buffalo. This national park is about a 3.5 hour drive northeast from
I’ve been waiting a really long time to compose this post and, after FINALLY experiencing Trip #7 for myself last month, I think it’s time to unveil it! Melbourne is a fantastic (and “liveable”) city, but there’s some equally amazing stuff worth experiencing elsewhere in Victoria. From coastline to countryside
To give you an idea of how much I planned for my recent road trip around High Country, Victoria: I didn’t actually know I’d be doing a road trip until about 3 weeks beforehand, and I didn’t know where I’d be heading until about 2 days before picking up the
One of the very first things I noted when I moved to Sydney on a work & holiday visa a few years ago was that on Sundays, there’s a $2.60 cap on public transport for the whole day. Hey, if the government has subsidized public transport to encourage more people
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.
