Saxon Yuen gave up a job he loved to follow his dream. With one year and a lot of experience under his belt he’s back to let us know if we should all consider throwing our keyboards out of the window too…
About a year ago I quit, not only a promising career, but a job I loved. I waved goodbye to my friends and left my apartment, my city, my favourite Chinese takeaway – my whole life as I knew it – in order to travel and chase down a dream.
I wrote about it here and apparently it’s been a bit of a hit (thanks guys) so the masters of the blog have asked me for a little follow up. Am I still going? Is life still good? Did getting typhoid fever take the shine off the dream? Well if the title hasn’t already given it away completely read on and I’ll let you know…
Last year we asked you to pick your favourite campervan route from a choice of 3 amazing Australian itineraries and 2 marvellous New Zealand routes. The winner was Charli’s East Coast extravaganza where she rocked the Cairns to Sydney.

When asked what they know about Peru many people jump straight to Machu Picchu (not literally, it’s quite a long hike). Some
conspiracy theorists history buffs may also talk of the amazing and still genuinely mysterious lines at Nazca. Other than these, Peru’s highlights are discussed in roughly the same manner that astrophysics is at STA Towers…briefly and with very little actual knowledge.
With this in mind, we’ve drawn from our own journeys and the experiences of our Travel Experts to pull together a guide to the wonders of Peru. This itinerary can be followed point by point, mixed up, added to, subtracted from or discarded entirely. But it’s pretty good. We promise.
It’s that time of year again. You dust off your old habits, take a good look at your life and decide…you know what? I’m pretty damn awesome. But I could probably change the odd thing. Just the odd one mind you, otherwise it might affect the awesome.
With that in mind we’ve got some travel resolutions that will help make your journeys in 2015 a little more interesting and, more importantly, they’re easier to stick to than the “New Nordic” diet. Trust us.
