By the time I hit Sydney, Australia (on September 11th), I was ready to CHILL OUT for awhile. Not only was I “travel-exhausted” in general from the past seven months, but the week prior I had been staying at hostels on my own and had quite a few late nights out with hostel friends (you […]

As an English-speaker, you may think going to Australia means you’ll be able to understand the people and communicate easily 100% of the time, right?  Well, not completely, actually.  The Australians also have a LOT of slang words and phrases of their own that can leave an American standing there, dumbfounded, and often repeatedly saying, […]

Australia facts: Are Australians the happiest people on earth?

Posted on September 24th, 2013 by BreAnn

You might think Australia is much like the US, and in some ways it IS. However, the more research I did about the country (and finding out about their minimum FOUR weeks of vacation per year!), and the more time I spent in everyday life with friends in Brisbane, Sydney, and Melbourne, the more I […]

Port Douglas, Daintree, and diving the Great Barrier Reef!

Posted on September 10th, 2010 by BreAnn

After driving ALL DAY on the “wrong side of the road” up to Port Douglas, Australia, we pulled into our motel/condo for the night, which ended up being a TOTAL dump!
