If you follow me on Instagram you will have seen the above photo asking "Guess where I am". Answers on a postcard? I was in Sydney, with so many cool places to visit and Instagram. Here are the pictures I took while there.

You only have to read to my post last week to know saying goodbye to my travel companions broke my heart in two and maybe it was this, or maybe it was self sabotage post this event but things in Sydney seemed to be slowly getting worse for me.

Another short and sweet IG Diary post for New South Wales just because I wanted to keep the Sydney chapter separate. Here are a couple of shots from Byron Bay and Newcastle.

Okay so this is my first video I have made while in Australia and uploaded to my YouTube channel. I am hoping to make loads more videos in the future so keep your eyes peeled. This is comprised of some of the videos I took on my GoPro while on my tour, I have always loved photography but really wanted to expand my creativity to videos too.
The Music is by Vance Joy and I live this song but do not own any rights to it so please support the artist and buy the track from iTunes. I hope you enjoy it. Clips include The Twelve Apsotles, Uluru, Maguk, Coober Pedy, Halls Gap, The Gampians, Mount Gambier and the Great Ocean Road. Hopefully it will inspire you to take a road trip too!

After leaving Newcastle we were on our way to Sydney, the final stop of our trip down the east coast. There was definitely a solemn feeling in the air as we boarded our bus. Comments of "this will be the last bus we catch together" and reminiscing about our journey began, you could already tell the last week together was going to be a difficult one. The journey from Newcastle only took just over two hours and before we knew it the Opera House was in sight and we were driving across the Harbour Bridge towards Central Station.

The last two months have been fantastic travelling from place to place, meeting all kinds of wonderful people and having experiences that will last me a lifetime of stories and wonderful memories that I will cherish forever.

a dark hostel room is probably one of the most sobering moments I think you could have. And that's is what I am doing as I write this post. I mentioned before that travelling, especially backpacker-style for any period of time isn't all glitz and glamour like everyone thinks it is, this is definitely one of those moments and I want to cover it before I cover all my Sydney memories.
Today I am showcasing my second set of Instagrams from Queensland (you can find the first post here). Featured in this post is Rainbow Beach, Fraser Island and Brisbane.

Because I took so many Instagrams in Queensland I have had to split the IG diaries up so they are not too photo heavy. Today's features images from Airlie Beach and Agnes Waters/1770. Enjoy!

On my second day in Byron Bay I woke early, around 5.30am, got my sleepy self up and ready to leave the hostel at 7am. Nerves were lightly fluttering around my stomach but tiredness was winning. Today was the morning I was going to jump out of a plane from 14,000 feet. Today I would b Skydiving.
We left Surfers Paradise for Byon Bay after lunch on the 28th October for 2 nights. We were all quite excited as we would be seeing old friends we made that night from Mission Beach. Travelling down the coast you seem to do that. Meet people, split up, see each other again for a few hours/a day, overtake them, they overtake you and then all of a sudden you find you get a few days together again in the same hostel and you still feel like you have known these people all your life. I don't look forward to seeing them all off at the airport when I reach sydney.

On our second day in Surfers Paradise reality was starting to settle in a bit for me, for my group is is just a holiday but for me I know I need to find a job and acommodation for the summer and decide where I am heading to, it's quite nerve wracking really and so I woke up with an uneasy feeling in my stomach. Despite all of this I was determined to get out and do some chores and sees bit more of the city before heading back to the hostel to hammer the wifi on my job search.
