CAPTIVATED BY BYRON BAY

To me, there is no better feeling than the first big, early morning stretch in my van as I slowly wake up and take in my surroundings.

CANADIAN TOUR Part 1

After travelling to Canada for my very first international tour last year in July, I got bitten by the international travel bug. Sure I’ve lived on the road for a year in Australia, and I have travelled 60 per cent of my country (And LOVED it), but the feeling I got by being on top of the world at one of the highest peaks in Banff, Alberta Canada, at Sulfur Mountain lookout (Elevation of 2,451m) is just so indescribable, I longed to go back for my second Canadian Tour…
