15 Favourite New Destinations of 2015

2015 has been a great travel year for me. I was in the middle of my two gap years, when 2015 started, so I’ve had plenty of time to explore the World. Basically, my year has been work, travel, work, travel, work, travel. Just the way I like it. I’ve been on weekendtrips to Latvia and Germany, family holidays in Spain, Andorra and England and…

My One Month in Australia

On November 8th, I set off on my first trip ever to a country below the equator – and I went way down. I went down under, to the beautiful and diverse country of Australia, where I spent four beautiful weeks in five different locations. I’ve explored the cities of Melbourne, Adelaide, Sydney, Canberra and Brisbane; travelled around hilly landscapes in Victoria, mountainous regions in…

My Last Week: Brisbane and Beyond

Brisbane, the third largest city in Australia and the capital of the state of Queensland, was my last destination on my one-month trip to Australia. Brisbane is a city that I’ve wanted to visit for ages, mainly because of my love for Black Milk Clothing. In order to explore as much as possible in and around the city, I chose to spend an entire week…

Brisbane: Black Milk’s Birthday Party ’15

Ever since Euro Sharkiecon in September 2014 on Mallorca, I’ve been looking forward to this years event with my favourite clothing company, Black Milk Clothing. Since there were no events in Europe this year, I decided to make the trip to Australia for their birthday party on December 5th.

A Day Trip to Byron Bay

During my last week in Australia, I stayed with my friends Elien and Liam at Liam’s family’s house in Logan in between Brisbane and Gold Coast. Elien and Liam wanted to show me some of their favourite places in the area, so on the day after my arrival, we headed to Byron Bay, a famous beach town in the far-northeastern corner of New South Wales.…

My Whitsunday Islands Adventure

After spending two weeks in three big cities, it was time to experience another side of Australia. I headed to the Whitsunday Islands, where I stayed and partied in Airlie Beach, sailed around the beautiful islands and snorkelled in the Great Barrier Reef. I flew into Hamilton Island and caught a rather expensive ferry to Airlie Beach (50 AUD for 45 minutes of sailing). It…

Flying into the Whitsunday Islands

The second part of my favourite domestic flight in Australia was the most beautiful landing over the Whitsunday Islands, ending at Hamilton Island Airport. The first part was flying from Sydney, which was gorgeous, but flying into the Whitsundays was simply breathtaking. I’ve seen quite a few beautiful landings in my short lifetime, but none have been anywhere near as stunning as this one! From…

Living It Up in Sydney

You can’t go to Australia without visiting Sydney, people say. As the biggest city in the country, there are countless opportunities and things to explore in and around the city. I spent five beautiful days there and I was never bored! Even though the size of the city is way too big for my liking, I really enjoyed my time there, seeing as Sydney is…

Hiking in the Blue Mountains: The National Pass

Being incredibly intrigued by mountains, fresh air and waterfalls, the Blue Mountains located just 50 km. from the center of Sydney were calling my name from the moment I got to Sydney. After so much time spent in concrete jungles, I knew that I had to go there. Since Naufar had the day off work, he decided to join me and we had a great…

Bondi Beach to Coogee Beach Coastal Walk

The Bondi Beach to Coogee Beach Coastal Walk is one of the most popular coastal walks in Sydney, taking you from the famous Bondi Beach to the more relaxed Coogee Beach. On my third day in Sydney, my Couchsurfing host Naufar and I decided to do the walk. When I came to Sydney, I knew that I needed to see Bondi Beach, as it’s hands-down…
