Stats from 3 years of Full Time Travel

A full run down of costs and stats now that we have been on the road for 3 years!

Full Time Travel is Not Always Sunshine & Rainbows

After 3 years on the road our worlds have been turned upside down.

July 2021 – Travel Expenses

An itemised summary of our monthly expenses for July, and an overall weekly average.

We are just a regular Australian couple, married for almost 30 years with two young adult boys. We are making the most of our lives by maximising our travel opportunities before retirement! Many people think they need to wait until retirement or until they win lotto! Unfortuntely, things don’t always go to plan. We are making sure we see our fair share of this country now. We have always traveled more than most while working, taking advantage of long weekends and sneaking in an extra day’s leave here and there. 

In August 2018 we both resigned from our jobs to take a “gap year or 2” We have been on the road since then, and hope to extend our “gap year or 2” for as long as possible! 

We love the red Outback, country pubs, Aussie rivers, vibrant sunsets, waterfalls, campfires, stargazing and following that secluded bush trail either on foot or in the 4WD. Then of course, there is the Coast! How glorious is it to stroll our Australian coast line, spotting whales, exploring rock pools or splashing in the waves! If you enjoy all those things too, you will just love our adventures! Hope to see you out there!

We have heard some pretty negative comments about the dolphin experience at Monkey Mia. Most people say it is over rated, over priced and too crowded. As with most negative comments, we thought we would make up our own mind. We were quite pleased with our experience. The tour guide gave a very informative commentary explaining how dolphins feed in the wild. We were asked to stand back while dolphins were looking for food. (This video shows a dolphin actually fishing for a feed in the shallows!) Once the dolphins had finished fishing, volunteer marine biology students fed a small amount to each dolphin, so as not to interfere with their natural behaviour. If you want to feed the dolphins, forget it. This experience is not for you.If you want to be educated about dolphins, then you will enjoy Monkey Mia. I feel it probably is a bit overpriced, but overall we had a pleasant morning. You decide for yourself 🐬 ... See MoreSee Less
