I took the ferry from Melbourne to Tasmania (known as Tassie). I booked a fairytale cabin next to an apple orchard! I was provided free gin & brandy tastings from the onsite distillery. The host even provided me with dinner and great conversation!
On a sailing tour of the Whitsunday islands, our engine suddenly caught fire! The captain shouted for the fire extinguisher as massive black clouds of smoke filled the sky.
I had never rock climbed or rappelled, but this experience going into the center of the earth was once in a lifetime! We went all of the way into a class six gorge in Western Australia. This was in the top three things I’ve ever done.
Solo traveling gives you the opportunity to meet people from all sorts of backgrounds. One evening in Australia, I met someone at a high level in politics.
I met some British guys on an ATV tour and they were a blast! I tagged along with them while checking out the bars and clubs in Chiang Mai.
I returned to Los Angeles and stayed at the house of a rock star – Ryan Shuck. Then I went to a party on a boat and ended at a mansion.
I zip-lined through the trees on Whistler mountain. The lines were long and fast! It was great weather, but they even do it in the winter. It was a great way to end my time in Whistler.
