Wanderlust: Share your travel adventures and plans for the future!

   tumblr_mvn79pBPZn1s62xqro1_500.jpg

 

 

love travel, and not just overseas travel, even driving down to the coast for the day can fill me with an amazing sense of "Gosh, the world is an amazing place". I'm betting some of you guys must love to travel as well so come and share your adventures! Whether they're past journeys, something you have planned for the future or just pipe-dreams at the moment.

 

I myself am heading over to Japan and Hong Kong later this year, so bonus points if you can give me cool ideas Smiley Tongue

Re: Wanderlust: Share your travel adventures and plans for the future!

Hey @KitKat 

 

I've done a fair bit of travel overseas to countries like Thailand & Bali. About two years ago I actually went three times in one year! I'm planning to do a little bit of travelling WITHIN Australia this year. So much out there to explore!

 

I'm starting simple - so just a little bit of QLD - but i'm looking forward to the break. The same routine in lilttle ole' melbourne gets boring Smiley Happy

 

Next year my partner and I are looking at going to Europe!

Here's a picture of Karijini National Park, one of my best mates has been there and he described it as an oasis in the desert. 

Its about as outback and isolated as it gets. In the middle of nowhere there theres this place thats full of water and absolutely stunning, just looking at the pictures gets me excited to jump off those cliffs into the water.

Re: Wanderlust: Share your travel adventures and plans for the future!

@redhead Europe is amazing! I'm going on a full Europe trip this April! It's going to be around 3 weeks long and I'll be going to 11 different countries!
@j95 Oh that sounds amazing! I wish you all the best and don't forget to take pictures of everything! Even the most mundane things can be worth photographing.
@lanejane good luck in QLD! The place isn't as big as WA but there's still so much! Definitely go to the Gold Coast (Movieworld for the win!)
@KitKat that's so cool! I plan to visit Japan to visit some friends next year. And this thread is also a good idea!

Today I completed one of my dreams and visited Italy. I had my first Italian pizza and a hot chocolate that was like the sauce in the middle of a pudding (so thick and chocolately!). It was only one town but when I do my big tour around Europe I'll be visiting three big cities including the capital! I'm just so excited and happy. Italy has always been really close to me. My love of pasta and pizza and that I've learnt the language for so long too. Definitely a place to go back to!

Woah,  @lanejane three times in one year is so much! I'm so jealous of you! Exploring within Australia definitely sounds really exciting though. The other day I saw this overseas travel article about places to travel in Australia and the photographs were absolutely stunning. I couldn't believe it was the same place as where I live.

 

Where abouts in Europe are you thinking about travelling to though ? That's on my bucket list as well with my partner!   

 

@j95your plans look absolutely amazing!! How long are is your trip going to be ? Karijini National Park looks mindblowingly beautiful!!! That would be such an amazing experience.

 

@redhead'm so jelly! Where abouts are you visiting in Europe ?

 

@N1ghtW1ng when you go to Japan, where do you want to visit ? (secretly stealing ideas from you).  I'm doing Tokyo > Kyoto > Osaka as my major stops, but also will be visiting (and hopefully at least partially climbing) Mt Fuji, Nara (where all the deers are!) and potentially Hiroshima along with some other mountains and possibly a few islands. I'm a huge fan of Japanese pop-culture so I'm really excited for Tokyo.

@KitKat @N1ghtW1ng 3-4 weeks the trip is, we're flying to some of the places but driving quite a bit so it's obviously won't be as long as if we had driven the whole way around. Meeting up with some friends in the different places, who can hopefully show us some little gems a long the way. Soooo keen! And we chose a good time of the year too - winter!!! So excited!

@KitKat it was a pretty great hot chocolate! When I visit Japan I'll definitely visit the major cities, the deers(Of course the deers!) Hopefully the cats and bunnies too. Mountain climbing and just letting my Japanese friends take me around!
@j95 that sounds so great!

Re: Wanderlust: Share your travel adventures and plans for the future!

@KitKat I'll be spending the majority of my time in Sweden. Mum live there for 5-6 months of the year. I'll also be spending about 2 weeks in the UK. We are driving from Sweden to England and stopping at various places along the way.

@N1ghtW1ng jealous

@j95 hope you have a great trip

@redhead Sweden? I have a couple of friends there now I think. That sounds so cool! Do you know where you'll be stopping? It definitely sounds fun! I'm jealous!
