2017: My Year in Travel

Prior to travelling to Australia, I didn't know much about the country besides the fact that it seemed like everyone aspired to go there one day, or had already been or knew someone who went there. I also knew Australia has a lot of animals, I wasn't too fussed about that, there was also the sun and beaches and surfers. Going in cold to Australia worked in  my favour, I pretty much winged my trip and it worked out pretty much how I imagined it would go. I learned so much about what an amazing country Australia is, and I learned a lot about myself in the process..

What NOT to say to a female solo traveller

I've been travelling around Australia for eight months now, five of which were spent in the outback. If that doesn't scream this girl can handle herself, I don't know what does. No I may not be the roughest, toughest backpacker to hit the roads of Australia, but I'm not pathetic either. Each time someone says something along the lines of "it's not safe for a girl to travel alone" I just ignore it. I've had men confess to me that they couldn't do what I was doing if they were a woman my age, fly across the world and explore a country alone, taking such a big risk. So what does that say about them? What does it say about me?
