In November 2018, my #1 road trip buddy Marijs and I made the long drive from Sydney to Broken Hill and got to experience Outback NSW.
This unique little slice of Australia isn’t really on the tourist trail, but that only adds to its appeal I think.
You guys, I’ve found a remedy for Sydney winters without having to flee to the northern hemisphere!
Even after traveling to the US and Byron Bay this past winter, by mid-August I was still fed up with the cold weather.
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 residing overseas instead.
This Brisbane to Sunshine Coast road trip blog post was originally published in October 2017 and last updated in July 2020.

I recently wrote a post about how to plan a Kauai road trip – you know, the practical stuff like where to get camping equipment, how to book campsites, and what kind of car to rent.
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).

These are the things Southwest Australia is most known for. With plenty of time and money, you could afford to sample the best of the region via all of them.
This post about driving from Melbourne to Perth was last updated on 14 December 2020.
Very much a hot mess in Melbourne with an imminent flight to Queensland out of Perth, I knew I had to get my life in order and head to the west coast.
I won’t deny my tendency to over-plan my days and trips. That’s why it was rather out of character for me to hardly plan a thing for my Tasmania trip this past January.
