Today’s blog comes from STA Travel’s Sarah Hickey who can be found either curing her wanderlust in various parts of the world, or wishing she was back in the backpacker bubble.
I went to Fiji on a wing and a prayer! I booked it a couple of days before and all I was expecting were desert islands, excellent snorkeling and blue skies. Even though I was right about all of these things, if I’d have known what else was on offer I would have been more prepared, and I may have had a more exciting experience. Here’s what I wish I’d known before I left.
Louna Maroun – an Australian vlogger, singer songwriter and red hair enthusiast – and her partner Daniel Hynes, travelled between Atlanta, Nashville and New Orleans to discover the musical rhythms of the South. This is their story …
One of the world’s last remaining wilderness regions, Western Australia should be high on any adventurer’s bucket list. With beaches to rival the East Coast but no people to get in the way of your sun, swathes of untouched land to explore and tumbling waterfalls to gaze at lovingly in the desert sunset, there is simply no reason not to start planning your trip immediately.
In this blog we take a closer look at the route from Broome to Darwin and pick out some of the highlights of this incredible land. Walking boots at the ready…
Today’s blog comes from our resident road tripper Hannah “Jeffers” Jeffery who isn’t actually that keen on Dire Straits. Honestly.
If you have a secret thing for trailer trash, questionable driving skills (more sheep than people = empty roads) and musical tastes that shouldn’t be inflicted on coach loads of other travellers, then you’re the perfect candidate for a campervan trip!

However, before you scream “roadtrip” and bundle your motley crew of travel buddies into a van, there are a few things you need to know about campervanning in NZ.
With the help of our lovely friends at Mighty, Britz and Maui – the purveyors and experts of all things campervan – we’ve come up with some not altogether unhelpful dos and don’ts.
Today’s blog comes from Rick who recently returned from a trip to Laos with Stray Asia – a hop-on hop-off bus which is one of the only ways to travel through the remote region.
When most people think of Laos, they think of Luang Prabang, the old French colonial capital, Vientiane, the current capital, and Vang Vieng, the party capital.
