My love affair with Australia dates back to 2006, the year I studied abroad at the University of Sydney. I’m unable to explain exactly why this is my soul country, but I never was able to shake the feeling that I was meant to live in Australia.

Hiking is one of my favorite ways to enjoy the outdoors, and something I try to incorporate into every trip I take no matter where I travel. It usually doesn’t cost anything (not counting what you’ll spend on hiking gear or on accommodation if you do an overnight trek), it’s low risk and low impact, and it doesn’t require any technical gear or skills beyond a good pair of hiking shoes and the ability to put one foot in front of the other over and over again.
In my opinion, the best way to experience a new place is by road tripping. Road trips give you optimal freedom to explore, and on your own timeframe. You can go wherever you want, whenever you want, when you have your own car.
