I traveled to the other side of the world to explore Australia in every way possible. Over two months, I visited every state and territory (except the capital) and clocked over 18,000 miles—by every mode of transportation imaginable. Honestly, I fell in love with this country, from the people, wildlife, and landscapes, right down to eating Vegemite on my toast. Australia is a glorious destination. I’m so glad I could go and can’t wait to go back.
