Please tell us a bit of your background and your travel experience.
I’m a 25 year old surfer and photographer from Devon in the UK who has spent the last 3 years travelling around the world covering heaps of countries, 6 continents and a whole bucket load of random adventures! And of course I’ve blogged it all over at BackpackerBanter.com
Why your life has lead you to live as a travelling backpacker?
I blame surfing and photography totally for my travelling lifestyle! As a surfer you always dream of warmer waves (it’s bloody cold surfing in the UK!) and I think travel and surfing go hand in hand. Couple that with a degree in documentary photography and you have a person who lives, dreams and breathes travel!
That all spiraled into my life as a travel blogger, which now funds and spurs on my travel plans even more than I could’ve ever dreamed of! Read the rest of this entry »
Kangaroo Island, South Australia … Across the Water, but a World Away!
Think of an island with 509km of Coastline & 155km from the East Coast to the West Coast. With native bushland, wildlife, adventure & exploring. Where pristine beaches, local wines & sunsets are on your doorstep. You’ll need longer than you think!
“There really aren’t enough adjectives to accurately describe the beauty of Kangaroo Island. In fact, words can almost spoil the moment. Even photos don’t do this wildly gorgeous destination justice”. Isaac Bober, Symmetry, Australia

So – you coming to Australia and decided to buy a car – GREAT! Now comes the big decision – what do I actually want? Do I want a stationwagon, van or may be even a 4WD?
PRICE & COSTS
If you are on a real budget the Stationwagon is your best decision – they can be quite cheap and you can split any extra costs – petrol/camp stations – among a group of people. Stationwagons are also rather easy to fix on a decent price level. Should you decide to stay ltos of nights in a hostel it might worth considering a van – hostel accommodation costs can very quickly add up and you may find that a van – with a proper bed & kitchen – might be a lot more suitable. A 4WD is the definitely on the top price wise but you paying for the real-life outback experience – so it’s worth it. Read the rest of this entry »
