Stay in shape while traveling

stayinshapecairns

Going travelling can be a life changing experience but you need to make sure it is life changing in a positive way. Whilst travelling you will do things you would never normally do, eat things you would never normally eat and meet people totally different to anyone you may have come across before. For some people who go travelling they will go home a different person, with a new outlook, new friends and new habits (not always good ones).

If you're travelling around Australia, no doubt you would have had your pre-conceptions about the wonderful Aussies. However, there are a few phrases and stereotypes of Australians that not all Aussies will agree with, and some Australians hate these stereotypes with a passion! Here are the 3 stereotypes that Aussies working at Nomads Airlie Beach dislike the most.

Glebe Market Sydney

glebemarket

If you are looking for something to do on your lazy Saturdays before going out, you will really enjoy Glebe market. It is located just outside the city centre but it really feels like you're not in Sydney any more. The atmosphere there is very town-like. When you walk into the street the market is located on, you immediately notice the serenity and peacefulness of the neighbourhood.

4 reasons you should keep on traveling

reasonstotravel

Traveling is awesome. Everyone knows that. You meet new people, see new places, experience new things. But let's face it, sometimes, every now and then, you just wanna pack up your shit and go home.

You miss your friends, your family, even your job sometimes (maybe just a little), you're broke, nothing's going your way, you're sick of all the packing up and constant farewells.

Why I prefer traveling alone

makingfriendstraveling

I always planned to go on my trip through Australia by myself. First, I was not sure about how it would be to travel alone. I guess it's quite normal that I was a bit worried in the beginning! But luckily I figured out very quickly that I would never be lonely on this journey. It took me around half an hour before I made my first friend on the plane. And it continued like that. No matter where I went, I met amazing people, heard interesting life stories and made friends for life.

Why visit Rotorua in New Zealand?

zorb-rotorua

Why? Here's why...

Action, adventure, Maori culture, Geysers, mud pools and thermal hot springs have been attracting visitors to Rotorua since the 1800s and the living, breathing landscape never fails to amaze. Don’t be put off by the faint sulphur scent which lingers in the air like a bad fart, this is just a reminder of the thermal activity that is beneath the surface constantly trying to escape.

Hobbiton & Tamaki Cultural Show

hobbitonmatamata

After an amazing 2 days so far visiting the North Island with Kiwi Experience, we wondered how on earth could it get any better. So far we had visited volcanic craters, kayaked across the Coromandel and abseiled through caves. Today however, a little town called Matamata was on the itinerary, where the hell is that I hear you ask, ah well, you may also know it as a little place in Middle Earth called Hobbiton.

Essential things to keep in your dorm

thingstokeepindormroom

There is nothing worse than realising you have forgotten something or craving something that you can not have. Being organised and ensuring that you have everything and anything you could need will save you a lot of time and the headache of searching for it when you need it most. Over the past few months I have learnt there are a few key items which you should always have easily available to you...

Aussie Rules (AFL)

aussierules

Aussie Rules! No that's not a statement, although Aussie does rule, Aussie Rules is the common name for the Australian Football League or AFL. The footy season (winter) brings both a crazed sporting atmosphere as well as showing the pride Australians have in their national sport. So what makes Aussie Rules different to football or rugby?
