One of the greatest joys of travelling is really discovering the way the locals live. That is what is so exciting about Backpacking as opposed to expensive hotel stays – you get to really immerse yourself in the culture as well as meet the locals and discover what life is really like in the city or village you are visiting.
Travelling through Melbourne suburbia, watching Scott and Charlene tie the knot in one of Australia’s most famous on screen weddings, my excitement was building. Having grown up with Neighbours I couldn’t wait to see what the ‘Official Neigbours Tour’ had in store for us.
So you’re planning a trip to Australia and you’re thinking about buying a cheap car or campervan to get you around? You want to experience Australia up close, an experience that will stay with you forever. You want the freedom to make your own itinerary and see and do things at your own leisure – then buying your own car or campervan could be the right move!
Sometimes staying in the city can be tough, expensive rent, expensive food and instead of venturing out and being social, most nights and weekends end up being spent doing home based activities because you are trying to save for something.
