The Perfect Long Weekend on the Eyre Peninsula

There have been a lot of benefits about moving back down to Adelaide. I have a steady home, a gorgeous fiancee and two beautiful bunnies to come home to every day. However, until recently, because of Covid, South Australia (SA) has remained mostly closed off to the rest of the country, and the world. It’s […]

A Day of Boozing, Pubs and Helicopters?!

darwin-helicopter-pub-crawl-blog-travel-northern-territory-australia

Living in Darwin had many advantages. Abundant mangoes, incredible storms, a newspaper which only seems to put out croc-related headlines and a generally relaxed vibe. One other such advantage is that it is one of the only places in the world where you can go on a pub crawl… in a chopper! When one of […]

What it’s Really Like to Swim with Humpback Whales in Tonga

When people ask me what my favourite travel experiences have been, swimming with humpback whales in Tonga is always one of the first things that springs to mind. I first swam with the humpies back in 2017, and as soon as I slipped into the water and saw a whale for the first time, I […]

A Top End Staycation at Hideaway Litchfield

Living in Darwin has many perks. We get cheap and abundant mangoes, hilarious headlines courtesy of the NT news and the most amazing monsoons. We also enjoy being just a short drive from Litchfield – an epic national park which I have visited many times before. Litchfield (or Litchy as it is affectionately dubbed by […]

I Love Darwin: An Ode To My Home In The Tropics

Darwin. When I moved to you I thought that I would need to endure you. I thought that I’d be lucky to last 6 months in such a new and different environment. I thought that my work would be harder. I thought that the humidity would nearly kill me. I was sure that the six […]

How To Spend One Day in Tongatapu

tongatapu-tonga-travel-blog-solo-backpacking-guide

Thanks to a stuff up courtesy of the super flaky Tongan airline Real Tonga, I found myself needing to leave Ha’apai and get back to the main island of Tongatapu a day earlier than I had anticipated. Initially I was kinda bummed out by this (I didn’t want to leave my island early!) but it did […]

Having a Whale of a Time: Swimming With The Whales of Ha’apai

When I look back on my time in Tonga, the words ‘awe-inspiring’, ‘magnificent’ and ‘unbelievable’ spring to my mind, but even these words seem to fall short. I have been sitting in this chair for 30 minutes trying to think of better words, but I just realised that there aren’t any. There are truly no […]

After an amazing first day spent in the water with some incredible humpback whales, it was time to head back to land and check out my eco-friendly home for the next few nights. Located on the small island of Uoleva which is part of a larger chain of islands known as Ha’apai, Sea Change lives […]

Swimming With Humpback Whales in Ha’apai

I have always loved the ocean. The vastness, the unknown, the depths and the colours have always seemed magical to me, but it is the creatures who call it home that truly captivate and mesmerise me. I have mentioned before that my first career aspiration was to be a coroner (I was obviously a well […]

A Weekend in Marion Bay, South Australia

As much as I love living in the Top End, it does have its downsides – the biggest one being that I don’t get to see my best friends all that often. Sure, I have friends up in Darwin, but it just isn’t the same as being surrounded by the people that you’ve known for […]
