About Me

My photo
After getting my first passport in 2006 and traveling to climb Kilimanjaro in Tanzania my life changed. I began the process of getting rid of all my possessions and traveling the world. Traveling to over 110 countries and all 7 continents, hostels have been my home. This "new life" has taught me what is important and it was NOT accumulating money or possessions. Traveling is the best education. I hope my blog will encourage others to travel. My World Tattoo was a way for me to express my PASSION FOR TRAVEL.

Australia, Whitsunday, Arlie Beach and Whitehaven Beach

November 25-29th, 2019

Purpose of this Australian visit was to visit the Whitsunday Islands and specifically Whitehaven Beach. Stayed at wonderful hostel, Bush Village Budget Cabins.  It was a 30 minute walk to Arlie Beach but really nice. Highlight was my catamaran cruise through the Whitsunday Island to Whitehaven Beach and my THANKSGIVING Australian BBQ onboard.

On my last day in Brisbane , I took a rover cruise to the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary. I was able to get a photo holding a koala. There are 130 koalas at the SANCTUARY. Also attended people feeding the kangaroos.

Spent 3 nights in Brisbane and had no idea what to expect. I stayed in Kangaroo Point. I really enjoyed my time there, especially since there were m any great restaurants, pubs and live music along the river. Visit to Koala Sanctuary was my highlight.

FIJI, Nadi

My cheap flight on Fiji Airways from LAX to Brisbane included a 2 night free stopover in Fiji. Enjoyed it but beaches WHERE I STAYED were adequate,at best.  Heard the RESORT BEACHES were impressive though.
