Traveling Australia’s East Coast in a Campervan

Episode 3: Traveling Australia’s East Coast in a Campervan
(ONE OF MY FIRST EVER VLOGS – The video quality, editing, and my ability to talk on camera has really improved since this hahaha but hey, we all start somewhere right?)

In this episode I will show you 12 of the 20 destinations we traveled during our 3 week Australian East Coast trip & important tips you can use when you make the trip too.

Warning: In this video, I
1. Have a snuffalumpagus cold.
2. Say “awesome,” “amazing,” “uh,” and “I gotta tell you” A LOT
3. I’m not sure I know what I’m doing
4. I just want to inspire other people to leave their comfort zones and travel.

If you are planning on visiting Australia I highly recommend renting a camper van for 2-4 weeks to explore these destinations…

Jucy van comes with all bedding needs, cooking ware and utensils, fridge, and gas for the stove – for the price it was a great option. We will be using Jucy again in New Zealand!

Campervan accommodations include:
– National parks: stay for very low prices or even free
– Free parking areas: we found a few beach towns that allowed you to park and sleep legally. — Google Terrigal
– Caravan parks: most range from – a night and include showers and laundry. Be aware that these can add up quickly if you are trying to go the cheap route.
– Random neighborhoods: illegal in most areas but you can risk it if you’re feeling froggy.

If you have any questions at all please leave me a comment – I would love to help! Thanks for tuning in.
About the Vlog & Us:
Welcome to my Travel Vlog! (aka my side hobby)
This channel was created to inspire others to travel and really, to MOVE abroad. In these episodes I will show you the beautiful places around the world we explore + the answers to why and how we made it happen.

I am a rapid media producer (videographer/social media strategist) and my partner is a personal trainer. We left the United States to travel/live abroad for the next 3 years…

I graduated business school December 2015, worked to save money, and left the U.S. 1 year later.
Inspired by other travelers, with only 6 months of planning, I made the decision to leave my home country & explore the world. I quit my job, left my comfort zone behind, and entered a totally new world….

As of February, 2017 I have put more focus on my social media marketing business and helping business owners tell their story online. I film and edit videos regularly, but now to help other people win (which I’m really excited about!)

I am a huge advocate for personal development and am always eager to acquire new skills, learn about different cultures, and make new friends along the journey.

Living abroad isn’t for everyone but I think it’s much less complicated and more possible than some may think. Subscribe to stay in the loop!
