Each and every Travel Deeper adventure has been a direct result of the previous one.
I moved to Colombia after rooming with two great Colombians in Argentina. I volunteered in Ecuador, Bolivia and Guatemala after living a very sinful lifestyle in Colombia. And, I moved to Brazil after discovering the importance of the World Cup from every Latin American country I’ve lived in.
This mission will be no different. Thanks to an opportunity during the World Cup, I had the chance to meet and work with a great group of people from Australia.
They were crazy fun, incredibly inviting and wouldn’t stop talking about how great their country is.
So, it’s time for me to go see for myself! Next week I’ll be flying to Sydney to embark on a new adventure around Australia!
My goal is to experience everything from the urban lifestyles of Sydney, Melbourne and Perth, to the natural beauty of the Great Barrier Reef and rugged Outback.
With the ultimate aim as always of going from Tourist to Townie!
Apart from the obvious stereotypes and stories, I don’t know much about Australia.
I know they have a lot of dangerous creatures down there, so I’m going to try and stay clear of them. Especially snakes, I absolutely hate snakes.
Other than that, I have no set plan. I will touch down in Sydney next week and figure everything out from there.
If you want to follow along on all the adventures, I will be posting daily on Instagram and Snapchat (@GarethChat), and weekly “Travel Deeper – Australia” episodes on YouTube, so be sure to follow and subscribe to those.
From Australia, my plan is to hop over the Tasman Sea to explore New Zealand, and hopefully more of the South Pacific from there. But we can talk more about this when the time comes.
In the meantime, any travel tips to help me Travel Deeper in Australia and New Zealand would be greatly appreciated.
