Day 22: Rainbow Beach to 1770 and Agnes Water I woke up to the loud voice of a proper Aussie named Nate corralling the newest tour group at 6:30am. I didn't mind much since it meant we could get an early start on the road too. After breakfast, I checked the forecast and it said … Continue reading Aussie Motorbike Adventure Day 22: Rainbow Beach to 1770/Agnes Water
Day 21: Fraser Island to Rainbow Beach I woke up around 6am and started to clean the campsite since I knew my fellow team members would not be fit to drive this morning. Stumpy and I cleared the empty cans and shimmery silver wine bags. He remarked that he chooses not to "poison" his body … Continue reading Aussie Motorbike Adventure Day 21: Fraser Island
A quick jog turned into a two hour trek through Noosa National Park. We even got to enjoy the beach without much rain and won hostel trivia!
Some beautiful forest roads and some ugly Brisbane traffic. Today we headed out to the Glass House Mountains region for some hiking and a great Airbnb.
Feb 17 Even though we scheduled a late breakfast to allow us to sleep in, we woke up at 7am. At least we used the time to pack up and get ready to head out on the bikes again. Breakfast consisted of delicious fried eggs, bread, and traditional Vietnamese coffee made by the adorable grandmother … Continue reading Tuan Chau to Cat Ba Island

Jan 8 After a hearty helping of free toast, peanut butter, and Rice Krispies, we ran to catch the tram into the CBD and the starting point of the free walking tour. Our guide took us all around the city: The old gaol (where Ned Kelly had his last words before being hung), the old … Continue reading Melbourne
Byron, his sister and I woke up at the crack of dawn, and had to sprint past all of downtown in order to make our train. Of course, sweaty and out of breath we found out the train was running fifteen minutes late. Typical. After a few transfers, a bus took us to Bondi Beach, … Continue reading Dec. 28 – Sydney Beaches
The kids were awake and out motor biking before we even got out of bed, so we went out and joined them to have a few more hours before we piled into the car for the day's activity. The journey to Jenolan Caves took us past incredible lookouts, like Mount Victoria's view of the surrounding … Continue reading Dec. 27 – Springwood and Jenolan Caves
