    5 things every Aussie MUST experience!
    1024 768 nomadic adventure

    Australia. The great land of opportunity! In 2016 many young Aussies don’t seem to think so. Most of us view Australia as small fry; a splodge on the corner of the world map. There’s a bit of a “getting out” and “moving on” kind of attitude. But I’ve realised that everything I was looking for…

    Truth be told
    1024 768 nomadic adventure

    I’m going to tell you the truth, because honesty seems to be lacking a bit in this world. I balled my eyes out when we left Pearcedale in Luxi on Jan 26th to drive around Australia. The weather was miserable and so was I. I was confused. I had no idea whether it was the…

    My Dad is one of those farmers who denies that it’s raining. Water falls from the sky but apparently it’s not the “proper” kind of rain. Well Dad, 125ml running a lake through your tent certainly looks like “proper” rain to me. I’m proud to be taking the photo proof home. Not only did we…

      Connection. What’s the first thing that pops into your mind when you read the word? Do you think of connecting to the internet or plugging your phone into power?

    Staying fit on the road
    960 960 nomadic adventure

    One of the most beneficial health outcomes of outdoor adventuring is the amount of incidental exercise you pack into each day. From walking to the toilet block, to setting up the tent, you are constantly burning energy. James and I currently average at 20,000 steps a day, more than double the daily recommended. We are…

    Never before did I think I could become jealous of a material possession. That was until my boyfriend bought a new car. Sorry not a car, a ute (I’ve already been lectured on the importance of using the correct terminology). Her name is “Luxi” and of course, like me, she is a female. When James met Luxi I…
