The Red Center was an experience that exhausted our spirits and our wallets. We arrived in Townsville and needed work. Finding work in Australia is easier said than done. We rely mostly on Facebook backpacker groups and Gumtree (Aussie Craigslist) to find jobs. That and days of traditional door to door Resume Handouts are the … More Damn Jackie, I can’t control the Weather!
After what seemed like decades Thomas and I have finally left cairns. We’ve been on the road again for about 2 weeks living the van life so I thought I’d drag my computer out and start posting again. I’m sure this will be the first of two, based on my track record. Before I can … More The Pretty Good Barrier Reef
Despite it being 2017 for another 22 hours or so back home, the year is basically over here in Australia. Am I from the future? can I time travel?

Thomas and I arrived in Cairns about 10 days ago with the intention of finding work. Which we have! We are currently working one job for pay, one job for accommodation, and are about to start a third which will be on and off in exchange for free diving.

Endless desolate wasteland + No internet = a Lazy blogger About 3 weeks ago we left Melbourne and headed through south Australia and Northern Territory slowly making our way to Uluru.

While… sometimes it literally is a picnic, I just mean its not always easy. Sleeping can be difficult with lights and noise. We have avoided curtains because it would … More AdVANtages to Van Life
Its been over 2 weeks since I last posted which is unfortunate, but its because Thomas and I have been working. We have spent the last 11 days working as Carnies. You heard me right, we flew all the way to Australia to work as the great vagrants known as carnival people. We did Carnie … More Oh the Carniege
We have plans to dive the S.S. Yongala later in the year, but an Open Water certification won’t be enough for that dive. With 10 days of spare time between jobs, and a need to further our education in diving, Thomas and I signed up for an Advanced Open Water course. Compared to diving somewhere up north, … More Deeprived of Warmth
We intended to stay in Adelaide for 1 night. We have now been here a little over 2 weeks. Its not even that we particularly love the city. We just keep finding cool things and opportunities! Our first day consisted of riding around the city on bikes. Where did we get bikes you ask? They are free! … More Add some time in Adelaide
After the Great Ocean Road we found ourselves in a city called Mount Gambier. Not many people would look twice at Mount Gambier. We were told to check out a little area called Ewens ponds, we weren’t sure what to expect. About two hours out of the city we got our our google. Turns out … More Hook, Line, and Sinkhole
