500 days of travel | Time flys when you're having fun! ๐Ÿ‘ฏ . . 24 countries later, we're still enjoying life on the road and adding more destinations to the adventure! โœˆ๏ธ . . We're always in planning mode and still don't know where we're heading after Australia next month, but we wouldn't have it any other way. โœŒ๏ธ๐Ÿ™ˆ . . #500daysoftravel #traveltheworld #createtoexplore #exploretheglobe #travelgram #wetraveltogether #travelcouple #traveltogether #nomadlife #traveldiaries #travelling #lovetotravel #couplegoals #couplestravel #travelbloggers #backpackers #backpacking #exploretheworld #seetheworld #seeaustralia #westernaustralia #quitthegrind

A little timeout | It's been a whole week of relaxing and home comforts!! โœŒ๏ธ . . Having a home with a full fridge, cold white wine, hot showers, cosy beds and friends to chat all night with has been the ultimate way to relax! ๐Ÿ’… . . It's always nice to have a little break from being on the road! ๐Ÿก . . #emmagorge #gorge #nature #seeaustralia #thekimberlyaustralia #australia_shotz #visitaustralia #tourismaustralia #travelphotography #createtoexplore #girlsthatwander #girlswhotravel #gltlove #exploretheworld #nomadlife #relaxing #travelblogger #traveltheworld #globetrotter #chill #happiness #ontheroad #quitthegrind

Birthdays in the outback | Without signal in the bush, Sam had the best birthday using his time wisely - eating cake and drinking wine (or tea to go with his cake!). ๐ŸŽ‚๐ŸทBut he was upset he couldn't get his birthday messages! . . His birthday was over ten days ago now, but the celebrations have carried on in the Northern Territory. ๐Ÿ’ƒWe're staying with my primary school teacher and her lovely family, being spoilt rotten! ๐Ÿ˜ . . Seeing friends and family on our trip is the absolute best! Especially when the wines cracked open at 3pm on a school night!!

Best seat in the house | My license expired today, so now I'm co-pilot and Sam's got to drive for the rest of the trip! ๐Ÿ—บ . . What a real shame!

Caption this ๐Ÿ™ˆ | It a felt little odd taking photo's of a forest fire and this one looks a bit like a tragic album cover. ๐Ÿ’ฟ Ironically, we were recording a singing happy birthday message for my niece just after we took this and I couldn't even get the tune right to the simplest song. It took 5 attempts :/ i'm actually tone deaf! ๐Ÿ™ˆ . . We've seen at least 3 forest fires this week in the northern region of Western Australia.๐Ÿ”ฅ The weather is sizzling up here (even in winter), so the natural disasters aren't a surprise when the grass is like straw. ๐ŸŒฑ But the eagles don't seem to mind, it means they can hunt for their scurrying prey. ๐Ÿญ . . #westernaustralia #seeaustralia #australiagram #worldnomads #thekimberlyaustralia #winterinaustralia #travelphotography #nomadlife #travelblogger #lostinourtravels #lifeofvisuals #createtoexplore #lifeofadventure #creativetravel #lovetotravel #gltlove #travelgram #girlsthatwander #travelcommunity #quitthegrind

Fun house | What started out as crocodile hunting, turned into finding our very own distorting mirror fun house! ๐Ÿ˜œ . . This camp has it all, cows, crocs and a beautiful lake! All for free ๐Ÿ˜ The owner of this cattle farm has opened up a space (by a lake, home to a crocodile) especially for campers. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ . . #westernaustralia #exploringaustralia #seeaustralia #australiagram #takemetoaustralia #freecamping #vanlifediaries #vanlife #worldnomads #thekimberlyaustralia #broome #stayandwander #travelphotography #nomadlife #travelblogger #lostinourtravels #lifeofvisuals #traveldeeper #createtoexplore #theglobewanderer #voyage #backpacking #lovetotravel #minimalisttravel #gltlove #girlsthatwander #travelcommunity #quitthegrind

The perfect evening | Tonight we're staying at one of the cosiest camps so far on our road trip. ๐Ÿ”ฅ . . If you saw our stories today you'll know we've been making homemade tortilla's, for a Mexican feast!! ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿผ . .

Cable beach | Whilst everyone was at the long stretch of beach sunbathing, we were climbing on the rocks trying to spot some snub nose dolphins. ๐Ÿฌ . . We didn't spot any, probably because we were so close to the shore. ๐Ÿ™ˆBut we had a great afternoon being big kids...as usual! ๐Ÿ‘ฏ . . #westernaustralia #exploringaustralia #seeaustralia #australiagram #takemetoaustralia #wheretonext #travelcouple #coupleswhotravel #coupleslovetravel #worldnomads #thekimberlyaustralia #broome #stayandwander #travelphotography #travelgram #nomadlife #travelblogger #lostinourtravels #lifeofvisuals #traveldeeper #createtoexplore #theglobewanderer #voyage #backpacking #lovetotravel #minimalists #minimalisttravel #travelcommunity

The best things in life are free | The best time of our day is watching a sunrise or sunset. ๐Ÿ—บ . . They don't cost a penny and you can see them every day without fail here in Western Australia. โ˜€๏ธOur mornings are brighter and our evenings more relaxing.๐Ÿ’†๐Ÿผโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ’†๐Ÿผ . . #visitaustralia #westernaustralia #exploreaustralia #seeaustralia #australiagram #takemetoaustralia #wheretonext #vanlife #vanlifecamper #vanlifediaries #stayandwander #travelphotography #travelgram #nomadlife #travelblogger #lostinourtravels #lifeofvisuals #traveldeeper #createtoexplore #theglobewanderer #voyage #sunset #sunrise #minimalists #minimalisttravel #travelcommunity #quitthegrind

Easy days | We've had the most relaxing day doing absolutely nothing by the beach. ๐Ÿ˜ . . We sat down with our morning coffee and decided we weren't going to move all day! . . Our time was spent washing all of our clothes (Megan's favourite time of the week) and writing some new blogs we've been slacking on. Lucky @olivia.miranda and @tish0tash0tosh have Bali blogs coming their way and we've filled a whole page on van life, with some great Q&A's we've had from friends like where we shower and go to the toilet. ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ˜‚ Our internet just isn't quite strong enough on the road to publish them yet. . . #australia #westernaustralia #exploreaustralia #seeaustralia #australiagram #justanotherdayinwa #takemetoaustralia #wheretonext #vanlife #vanlifecamper #vanlifediaries #stayandwander #travelphotography #travelgram #nomadlife #travelblogger #lostinourtravels #lifeofvisuals #traveldeeper #createtoexplore #ourplanetdaily #gohypetravel #theglobewanderer #travelcommunity #quitthegrind

Where to next on our travels? | We are in planning mode today. ๐Ÿ—บ . . We're trying to figure out where to go. ๐Ÿ˜ฉ Do we see more of Australia or do we discover new countries like the Pacific islands? The best thing about the Pacific islands is the work aways they offer which means we can travel for longer. โœŒ๐ŸปSuch a tough situation to be in. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜ . . #visitaustralia #westernaustralia #exploreaustralia #seeaustralia #australiagram #backpacking #workaway #takemetoaustralia #travel #amazingwa #ig_australia #travelersnotebook #wheretonext #travelplanning #travelphotography #visualsoflife #instatravel #travelblogger #lostinourtravels #traveltheworld #exploremore #happytravel #stayandwander #adventureawaits #girlslovetravel #travelcommunity #quitthegrind

C'mon England | After a few Aussies recognised our accents today, they cheered us on for the semi finals. ๐Ÿ˜‚ . . We were then spurred on to chant through the gorges 'c'mon england', not sure how much it was appreciated though!๐Ÿ˜œ Even though we're enjoying being on the other side of the world, we wouldn't mind being at home soaking up the energy!! โšฝ . . #australia #westernaustralia #exploreaustralia #seeaustralia #australiagram #justanotherdayinwa #takemetoaustralia #worldcup #gorge #karijininationalpark #patriotic #amazingworld #travelphotography #travelgram #instatravel #travelblogger #lostinourtravels #traveltheworld #createtoexplore #sheexplores #wanderful #beautifuldestinations #travelcommunity #quitthegrind

Mount Bruce | The first mountain we climbed in Australia just had be named Bruce! ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ Go on Brucey!! . . The second biggest mountain in Western Australia had us hike up and down these beautiful mounds, before rock climbing our way to the top of the penultimate hump. ๐Ÿซ The effort in the strong winds was well worth it, as the views of the mountain was just as glorious as the views from the summit. ๐Ÿ˜ . . #visitaustralia #westernaustralia #exploreaustralia #seeaustralia #australiagram #justanotherdayinwa #takemetoaustralia #travel #amazingwa #ig_australia #mountbruce #karijininationalpark #naturephotography #wheretonext #travelphotography #travelgram #instatravel #travelblogger #lostinourtravels #traveltheworld #exploremore #travelcouple #stayandwander #adventureawaits #travelcommunity #quitthegrind

Curious Gorge | A tranquil gorge today, which billions of years ago was under the sea, before the layers of rock bent and buckled before they pushed their way to the surface! ๐ŸŒ . . Sam did a Geography degree (a long time ago now ๐Ÿ™ˆ) and was in rock heaven! I made sure to test his knowledge as we went along!

Karijini National Park | When we think of Australia this is what comes to mind! ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ . . Karijini is west of the famous Coral Bay and Exmouth region and the second largest national park in Western Australia! ๐ŸžBoasting impressive gorges and humongous red rocks, we're looking forward to seeing the greener side of the country. ๐Ÿ˜ . . #australia #visitaustralia #exploreaustralia #seeaustralia #westernaustralia #karijini #landscape #traveltheworld #createtoexplore #exploretheworld #lovetotravel #travelwithus #travelgram #adventuretime #beautifuldestinations #wonderful_places #worldtraveller #letsflyawayto #travelcommunity #speechlessplaces #travelblogger #backpacking #travelphotography #sheexplores #instatravel #minimalisttravel #quitthegrind

Car karaoke | She made me listen to an hours worth of Beyoncรฉ songs on our drive today ๐Ÿ˜‚ a whole 100+km's - she may be small but she can definitely screech out those tunes!! ๐Ÿ™ˆ . .

Happy places | Just a few weeks ago we were fresh faced in Perth, not knowing what the road ahead entailed. ๐ŸšŽ . . Driving thousands of kilometres along the western coast in just two weeks we've got so many places we think are our favourite, until the next spot is just as great. ๐Ÿ˜Every coast is electric blue and turquoise, the waves are huge and the landscapes incredible. ๐ŸŒŠ . . The west coast is where it's at โœŒ๐Ÿป. . . #exploreaustralia #visitaustralia #westernsustralia #coastalliving #travelaustralia #travelcommunity #beachlife #australianbeaches #travelphotography #instamoment #wanderlust #beautifuldestinations #instatrip #instatravel #travelgram #travelwithus #travel #exploretheglobe #createtoexplore #travelbloggers #travelblog #amazingplaces #traveltagged #girlslovetravel #girlswhotravel #quitthegrind

Coral Coast ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ | Turquoise waters and dramatic cliff faces are just a few of our daily views . . . Every day the coast lines offer something new. Yesterday we saw half a dozen humpback whales migrating along the waters and were chasing blowholes on the cliffs. ๐Ÿ‹ . .
