Working holiday alone – how to find friends?

November 28, 2018

I started my second working holiday year in Australia without any traveling companion or friends to hang out with.  That year has been my biggest solo travel experience this far, and I can assure that I was nervous. How can one find friends? Am I condemned to a year of loneliness? In this post, I will share my personal experiences about my working holiday year in Australia and…

Australia and working holiday: How did I save money for it?

September 16, 2018

Working holiday, as the name tells, is a holiday combined with working and earning money. Australia is one of the most common working holiday destinations but the country is really expensive. One night at a hostel costs around 25 – 30 Australian dollars, and when you add food and other compulsory expenses, you easily end up spending at least 50 – 70 dollars per day. It is also…


Funny Australian food and drink habits

August 22, 2018

After spending a couple of years in Australia, you see a thing or two about their funny and peculiar food and drink habits. The most habits originate from Britain, but during the years, Australians have developed them one step further.

Will I return to Australia?

June 16, 2018

It’s been 13 months, when I left Australia. Moving there had been one of the biggest dreams I ever had, and actually making the final decision to go demanded a massive amount of courage and a bit of madness too. I had just received a permanent job contract after graduation, moved to a new city for my job and started my steady and respectable life as an adult.…


Why is Melbourne the world’s most liveable city?

April 21, 2018

Melbourne, the city of my heart, has been nominated as the most liveable city seven times in a row. When Sydney is charming you with the most recognisable monuments, Melbourne has a different, more subtle tactic.  Maybe that’s why people say that Sydney is the girl you date, but Melbourne is the girl you marry. But what is the secret of Melbourne? Is it the sounds of tram…


What I did not experience in Australia?

February 22, 2018

For almost two years, I travelled across Australia and managed to see even more than some locals will see in their lives. The largest cities, Tasmania, Great Ocean Road, Uluru, Blue Mountains, Great Barrier Reef, the rural Australia, Karijini Natural Park, Byron Bay – I saw all this, and much more. Luckily, Australia is a stunningly large place and there are still new places to discover. What did…


My TOP 10 experiences in Australia

January 12, 2018

There is nothing like Australia. There are few countries in the world that have so much diversity and that many varying things to do than Australia. Whether you like bustling cities or peace and quiet, snowy mountains, barren deserts or white beaches, Australia has it all. I fell in love with the country, its nature, people, way of life, wildlife, and cannot wait to visit that magnificent place again. In…


What to do in Broome, WA?

May 28, 2017

Broome is often referred as the pearl of North West Australia even though the town is not very well known among tourists. And who can blame them? The town of Broome is relatively small with just around 15 000 people living there permanently, it is super remote and not at all easily accessible unless you want to fly there. It is located staggering 2240 kilometres north of Perth, and…
