DSC02944

"Welcome to Australia" – once I learn this sign at Sydney Airport, I used to be so excited that I even forgot how tired I used to be of an extended distance from Amsterdam to Sydney. It was such a aid to lastly arrive for almost 30 hours. I do not assume I've ever been on a aircraft for therefore lengthy, but I knew that it is well worth the long trip. I've all the time dreamed to go to Australia, nevertheless it all the time appeared so distant, and since you need no less than three weeks, in case you are traveling Down Underiin Europe, I had the opportunity to go to before. In Germany, it is fairly widespread to have a piece and journey date in Australia after graduation, but in days of sweet 18, I didn't dare to do it.

Nicely 5 years later I lastly spent in Australia – not working, just traveling. I had a limited amount of time in my arms and I had to choose correctly. Australia is large and it is simply unattainable to see all of it in a short time. I discovered the East Coast's most fascinating begin in my journey Down Beneath. I already knew I might come back to see this lovely nation so I didn't have to rush it on this journey. In order to benefit from the time I had right here, I made a decision to go together with the tour firm as an alternative of getting organized one thing alone. I traveled with Stray in Asia earlier than organizing nice hop-on-hop-off journeys that will provide you with a comfort for a gaggle trip, however free enough to keep in longer locations in case you feel you want to explore more. The good bonus is that they all the time attempt to embrace some sort of crushed paths and native experiences, which makes it a very unique expertise. This reality distinguishes them from different tour operators. I'm often organized all the trip itself and the Stray actually changed my view of group tours. I still had sufficient freedom, but the stress of the organizations was taken away from me. When you solely have a restricted period of time, you don't want to waste it on getting to locations or unpleasant transport occasions.
