Firstly – Happy Valentines Day! Considering I’m travelling around the world with my boyfriend, I don’t think I’ve ever written a ‘couples travel’ post on here before. We’re three months in to our Australian adventure and I think we could both agree that it hasn’t been easy. We are currently spending every single day together, living together, worrying about our spends and, well, you get the idea. Three months in; I’d consider myself to be quite the expert at couple travel.
On a sunny afternoon strolling around Kendal, Jack and I were determined to pop into a book shop to find a book that suited ourselves for Australia. I’m not much of a reader myself, at least I wasn’t until I began to take travel writing seriously, so I had no idea what genre of book I was looking for. After mooching through a variety of travel books, I came across My Adventures – A Travellers Journal by Lisa Te Sonne. It seemed perfect.
It has almost been a month, three weeks exactly, since I embarked on my first real road trip, and what better way to do it than in Australia. We packed our bags just after Christmas in Brisbane, and set off to Sydney, to Melbourne and then to The Great Ocean Road, before travelling back to Brisbane on Sunday morning, stopping off at locations we missed on the way down.
