The 6th of october and my flight flew me all the way up to Queensland. My east coast adventure began up in Cairns, a little town close to the top of Australia. I stayed at a hostel called "Gilligans", which is a great hostel with nice rooms and close to everything. It was´nt really a hostel I would choose for myself cause of all the partying, but I sure did have a lot of fun. My second day was one of the best days of my life. I went up early, had a nutritious breakfast and got ready because that day was the day that I was going to dive The great barrier reef. I got to the boats along the harbor and the boat that took me out to sea was called "Ocean Freedom". It was a great boat, basically it was me and all the older people but I think that´s a big part why I loved about it. It became the boat trip that I wished for, a relaxed and harmonic day. Hunger was nothing to worry about cause they where giving you more food then you could eat, snorkling stops and the best part of all, many dives! I have´nt dived a lot but that was something extraordinarily, a saw fishes and colors that I did´nt even knew existed. Diving or snorkling The great barrier reef is something everyone should do before they die. It was absolutely amazing! Two days after the boat tour, I went on a day tour to Atherton Tableland´s Region with the uncle Brian´s tour, had a day full of water sliding on rocks and swimming under waterfalls. It was a great day in the nature that I definitely will remember for a very long time. When I did´nt have those adventures I had a few beer adventures, saw the night life and met a lot of crazy party people. I had 5 great days in Cairns and it definitely made me extremely curious about how the rest of the east coast would be like!

Early morning in August, on the 5th to be exact.
​I had sold almost everything I owned, packed the last of my belongings and had a one way ticket to Australia. I was nervous and excited at the same time. After 3 different flights, 22 hours and a 9 hours long wait in Bangkok. I finally arrived in Sydney, Australia!
I was tired and hungry, but it did´nt stop me from smiling. The first thing I did was to try to find somewhere to stay for a few nights, the first hostel I found was Bounce. I walked in, asked for a bed and he offered me a job, I was so tired and hungry, that after I´d taken a little nap I could´nt figure out if I had dreamt it or not. But that´s how I started to work at Bounce hostel and I stayed there for 2 months, just so I could plan what my next destination would be. It was 2 months of constant partying and meeting new people, which I enjoyed very much. It was a very fun and good experience, I would´nt choose to work in any other hostel then Bounce, its a great hostel for both workers and guests. I also did all the tourist attraction before I left Sydney, when I was´nt hangover or working of course.
Sydney was a very beautiful city, so many places you could go that where so different yet equally beautiful to each other. I don´t recommend to stay there for to long if you´re not working, because that city will "figuratively speaking" eat your money in one bite. Its a very expensive city but definitely worth seeing! Those 2 months went past so quick, I met so many good people that I still talk to today and hopefully will meet again somewhere. So with that said, I thank all the people and the city for the lovely stay but 2 months was enough and then I took the next flight to my next destination!

Where my wanderlust soul was born, where the lust of traveling began. It all started January 2015 when me and three other friends decided to pack our bags and go to Bali. One of us had been in Bali before so she knew a lot that helped us along the way. We arrived in Kuta where we stayed for 6 nights, it was a week of relaxation. We laid on the beach, got some shopping done and also went to padang padang in Uluwato (almost an hour outside of Kuta). It was this gorgeous hidden beach where you had to go down a couple of stairs through a cave to get to the beach. It was a really beautiful place but the weather that day was not working with us, still beautiful though. After our week in Kuta we decided to keep going and booked our transport to Gii Trawangan. After one horrible bus ride and one nice boat trip we where there, it felt and looked like paradise. Everything on Gili T was amazing, the water was crystal clear, the food was unbelievable and the whole island had so much charisma. I took my open water licens there, with Manta dive company and I loved every minute of it! I also got my new favorite dish there called Nasi Campor, it was rise, noodles, green beans and the most amazing chicken. It might sound simple but all that combined, it was delicious. We spent most of our time on Gili T, just enjoying life. We all had lost track of time and before we knew it we had to go back to Kuta. We stayed on that island for 2 weeks and I would´ve loved to stay longer but we wanted to see a little bit more of Kuta before we had to get on our flight back home. The last week of our Bali adventure we met up with some guys that one of the girls knew and we all went to Serangan together. The guys did some surfing and we four laid on the beach eating a lot of amazing, colorful fruit. We also went to a beach called "dreamland" and trust me, it was dreamy.
Everything about Bali was great, I loved every minute of every day on that trip. Unfortunately I did´nt do as much as I hoped but I only had a month off work. But that only means that I have to go back and do it again but with a longer "to do list" and I would love to go back to that paradise. Im very grateful that I did that trip cause it made me open my eyes, I got to see so much beauty that it made me more curious about the rest of the world. So the first thing I did when I got back home was to quit my job and then went traveling. Best decision I have ever made in my entire life!

This blog is going to start out to be my travel journal. A place apart from Facebook or Instagram, where I can actually write what Im doing and where Im going. I can put in more details to my pictures and write a longer text about my current destination, without having someone getting annoyed about the text being to long. Also many of you are probably wondering why Im writing in English, maybe some of you think that Im trying to be someone Im not or maybe you think that I don´t like the Swedish language. Well it´s non of the above, I´ve decided to write my blog in English cause there is so many people I´ve met during my travels that are not familiar with the Swedish language and will probably have a "little" bit of trouble reading this otherwise. Im writing my blog for my old friends/family back home and also for my new found friends all over the world. Hopefully I might succeed to get readers that will get inspired by my traveling and decides to do their own journey. By following my blog you will get the chance to see and read about my world traveling experiences. Hope you enjoy it!
