Aussie Experience nr. 7 – Sydney

Alright… this is going to be my last post about Australia! And it’s going to be quick as I’m falling far behind on my blogging and will end up sitting back in Norway writing up the last travel experiences instead of doing it where I’m supposed to do it, on the road. We only spent a few days in Sydney, but it’s really a beautiful city and it deserved some attention here 🙂 Sydney is one of the bigger cities in the world... Read More

Aussie Experience nr.3 – Australian wildlife at the Billabong Sanctuary

When someone mentiones Australia, the pictures of Kangaroos and Koalas immediately pop up in your head. It’s like Germany with beer, USA with big burgers and Norway with high price tags.

The Billabong sanctuary is a famous wildlife park in Townsville that has received... Read More
