What Inspired Us To Start Traveling In Australia
We’ve always wanted more from life and have loved travelling to many parts of the world together so we thought why not travel our own backyard and there’s never been a better time to do that with no overseas travel allowed.
Our Travel Plans
We started planning our trip about 12 months in advance which was mostly just getting the car ready and purchasing a camper trailer. Since we traveled with a camper, we didn't need to book anything because we were able to free camp and plan each day as it came.
The main things we needed for this trip were:
We don’t have an itinerary as such but our plan is to do a whole lap of Australia with no time frame. Originally we planned to do 6 months but here we are and we are nowhere near done, so it will be at least another 6 months because we’re only halfway around Australia!
We’ve Met A Lot Of Travelers
We've met a lot of other travellers doing the same as us, many from Australia and overseas. It’s been great to meet new people and also just to get ideas and recommendations from them.
Favourite Memory So Far
We’ve made a lot of memories so far so it’s hard to pinpoint one but if we had to say one it would be flying over the Whitsundays and Great Barrier Reef.
How We’ve Managed To Keep Costs Low
We’ve been pretty good so far with sticking to a budget but to be honest the best thing we’ve done was starting an online business which has helped us make an income along the way
