Contiki trips taken
The Big Walkabout (Sydney to Darwin)
Contiki ‘day song’
East Coast: I Love It - Icona Pop
Northern Territory: Thank You - MKTO
Favourite country visited
Australia, obviously! Though, the East Coast and the Northern Territory were so different that they felt like two different countries, so I'd say the Northern Territory was my favourite. The landscapes were just so incredible and nothing like I had ever seen before.
Favourite city visited
Okay, so it's not technically a city, but I'd say that Byron Bay was my favourite place on the East Coast. The beaches were just incredible and there's this place that makes the greatest breakfast smoothies known to man. In the Northern Territory I think I'd go for Katherine - we had an awesome pizza party there and it was where I saw my first wild croc!
Favourite part of the Contiki trip
How do you choose?! Scuba diving in the Great Barrier Reef was absolutely incredible (not likely to top being less than a foot away from a Giant Sea Turtle in the wild anytime soon), but watching the sun rise over Uluru was equally incredible. It was once in a lifetime experience.
Favourite photo from the trip
A big ask, considering how many I took! I love them all, but there's this one I took in Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary of a kangaroo sleeping in the sun - classic Australian attitude right there.
I've got a friend who is travelling through Cambodia and Vietnam at the moment and his stories are making me insanely jealous! The Big Indochina Adventure is a trip I'd love to take if I got the chance.
Travelling with Contiki helped me realize that it's the things you don't do in life that you regret. Things change and you never know where you're going to be in a year's time, so I think it's really important to take chances and do the things you want to do. There is no reason that you shouldn't get out there and see the world!
