• 11 Things I Don’t Love About Australia

    Australia is the dream of many travelers and therefore I know that there will be a lot of people not sharing my opinion, but I cant help it. When I was younger I always wondered what it would be like to live in Australia. Why? I actually don’t really know. I think because it was so damn far away from Europe I’d always been super excited to travel Down Under. Australia attracts travelers from all over the world and yes they definitely offer some amazingly unique experiences like kangaroo’s, the Opera House, koalas, endless beaches, the Great Barrier Reef, etc. The best places to see in Australia are fabulous and there are tons of other reasons to love Australia, yet still it is not my favourite country!

  • Cage of Death Review | Croccove Darwin

  • Crowne Plaza Perth | Best Riverside Hotel In Perth

But yeah I definitely could, when I received a message on the plan just before I was about to land in Israel, country number 78.

  • How I Ended Up Working In Australia

    Almost 2 years ago I was somewhere in Austria driving around in my car. It was the end of the winter season and I had been snowboarding for more than 3 months at that time.

Kakadu scenic flights are therefore one of the best ways to see Kakadu National Park.
