About Me

My photo
I am a bohemian nomad, someone who acts and lives free of regard for conventional rules and practices, but also one who moves according to the seasons. After traveling to over 100 countries and all 7 continents over the past 12 years I feel that I truly subscribe to the words of Mary Poxon, who said. "I sought to see the amazing as normal and the daily as unique, and in that swirling paradox I found the joy of travel." I will be forever in pursuit of new sights and adventures and hope that maybe I can convince a few more to give budget travel a chance. Budget travel gives those with little money an opportunity to travel and those with money an opportunity to travel longer.

  November 22-25th, 2019

Spent 3 nights in Brisbane and had no idea what to expect. I stayed in Kangaroo Point. I really enjoyed my time there, especially since there were m any great restaurants, pubs and live music along the river. Visit to Koala Sanctuary was my highlight.

On my last day in Brisbane , I took a rover cruise to the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary. I was able to get a photo holding a koala. There are 130 koalas at the SANCTUARY. Also attended people feeding the kangaroos.

Purpose of this Australian visit was to visit the Whitsunday Islands and specifically Whitehaven Beach. Stayed at wonderful hostel, Bush Village Budget Cabins.  It was a 30 minute walk to Arlie Beach but really nice. Highlight was my catamaran cruise through the Whitsunday Island to Whitehaven Beach and my THANKSGIVING Australian BBQ onboard.

Not my pic unfortunately

Another part of my day trip in Tasmania was to Mt. Field National Park to walk through the mighty eucalyptus TALL TREES which are the TALLEST HARDWOOD TREES IN THE WORLD located in Tasmania. Along the walk also was the beautiful Russell Falls.

LAST stop on our Tasmania Day Trip was to Mt. Wellington which overlooks the city of Hobart. It was snowing, sleeting and very windy but got a few good pics and even saw a rainbow.
