Australia. It’s probably on your bucket list (if it’s not, it should be). Australia introduced me to the amazing world of travel. It has everything a backpacker would want: decent hostels, amazing beaches, rainforests, deserts, friendly people, part-time work to earn some extra cash, and the chance to meet travellers from around the world. Fresh out of university, it was my first big trip. It was somewhere I had always wanted to go. I had a friend living there, going to school, so I had the perfect excuse.
