The Swiss Army Knife of Clothing!

Now there‚Äôs a hoopy frood who really knows where her sarong is! The number one item that I think every backpacker should have with them at all times, male and female, is a sarong. It is the most multi-purpose tool you can have and a few quick knots can turn it into almost anything. Take a look at my article at Add to Life to read exactly why you should…

That time I thought I was getting kidnapped…

This is one of those stories I like to bring out over a beer or something with friends. It’s one of the scariest experiences I’ve had while travelling – and looking back at it now, it’s pretty funny. It was one of those times when everything lined up in just the wrong way. Let me set the scene for you. I was at the very start of my first real…

Epi’s Midland Tour – old school travel at it’s best

Epi’s Midland Tour – old school travel at it’s best

Fiji is a fascinating place. When people think Fiji, I think most people think of relaxing on a white-sand beach with a coconut cocktail in hand, and that’s certainly a big part of what Fiji has to offer, but there’s so much more to see when you set foot outside the resorts. Fiji’s rich village culture and incredible inland landscapes have so much to offer. They aren’t nearly as accessible…

Travelling at Home – Motorbikes on the Monaro

Travelling at Home – Motorbikes on the Monaro

I’ve spent the last couple of weeks chilling out at home, at my parent’s house in rural NSW. I’m finally home from Fiji (don’t worry though, there’s still plenty more stunning-tropical-paradise posts in the works, with accompanying beautiful pictures) and I wanted to take some time out and just be at home for a bit. (Well, aside from multiple trips to Adelaide, Melbourne, Canberra… Ok, so I’m not really any…

Learning to dive in Fiji

Learning to dive in Fiji

Scuba diving. It’s something that will either fill you with excitement or fear, anticipation or dread. Being far under the surface of the water with a tank of air strapped to your back, venturing into the world of corals, octopi, sharks, rays, anemones, puffer fish, angel fish, more fish that one person could possibly count. People are sometimes shocked when I tell them I’m only new at diving. “But you’re…

Street Art in Siberia

Street Art in Siberia

Siberia is a fascinating place. It’s utterly remote, far from everything, synonymous with ‘the middle of nowhere’. It’s frozen for more than half of the year, just a little south of the Arctic Circle. And yet it’s also a lush, green place, for a few months of the year at least. It has a rich cultural legacy, and incredible geological features, the first of which must always be the stunning…

Racing round Vanua Levu – discovering the hidden beauty of Fiji’s North

Racing round Vanua Levu – discovering the hidden beauty of Fiji’s North

Northern Fiji is much less touristy than the Western and Central Divisions. It’s harder to get to, less developed, more remote. It’s also home to lush tropical forests, untold numbers of waterfalls, stunning soft corals, cloud-shrouded mountains, and beautiful, relaxed beaches. According to the locals, the Northern Division is Fiji’s crowning glory. “You haven’t seen Fiji til you’ve been to the North,” they’ve told me. So when I got the…

Swimming Sawa-i-Lau (the Yasawas’ worst kept secret…)

Swimming Sawa-i-Lau (the Yasawas’ worst kept secret…)

What’s a beautiful limestone cave like you doing in a volcanic archipelago like this? Sawa-i-Lau is a bit of a geological puzzle. While the rest of the Yasawa archipelago is volcanic, Sawa-i-Lau island is made of limestone. Beautiful sheer white cliffs reach up to the sky over the water, the “beach” as such is stone rather than sand, and best of all the gradual trickle of water over limestone has…
