Fraser Island, Australia (World Heritage listed) is the largest sand island in the world. That's right, the entire island is made of sand. Don't let that fool you though, it's also one of the most diverse islands. From just over 100 freshwater lakes, lush rainforests, a 120km beach highway, rugged terrain and natural beauty everywhere you turn, you are guaranteed to enjoy a visit here.
I recently spent some time on Fraser Island for the very first time and was pleasantly surprised, not realizing how stunning this island actually was. Located off the Sunshine Coast, and just south of the Great Barrier Reef, a visit to Fraser Island is a must for nature, culture and history enthusiasts. We stayed at the lovely Kingfisher Bay Resort, which is a 4-star eco-tourism, yet full-service resort and a great choice for tourists who still want all the comforts and modern amenities.
48 hours doesn't seem like a lot of time, however, there are an abundance of activities you can do in 2 days by planning well, and in advance. If you had only 48 hours to spend in the vibrant city of Sydney what would you do to make the most of your time? A very valid question for vacationers on a time crunch, or those just passing through. We are here to help make it easier for you to do just this.
I recently spent a very short 24 hours in Sydney and of course it was not nearly enough time, but happy for the opportunity to do what I was able to fit in, quite a bit in fact.
Sydney is the most well-known city in Australia. What comes time mind? Sydney harbour, Sydney Bridge, the world famous Opera House and so much more! Located in New South Wales, it's a bustling capital and the largest city in the nation. Sydney is also the main gateway to the country "down under". Most international flights, and well as cruise ships, arrive and depart from Sydney. And many vacations, tours and holidays will at least include a stop in the vibrate city, if not start or end there.
Whether you begin or end in Sydney, click "read more" for some of my "top picks" to introduce and welcome you to Australia, or say goodbye in true Aussie style.
What does a Honeymoon and Destination Wedding Specialist do anyway? A lot of couples that we meet have this exact question from the start.
With many of our couples growing up using the internet and so many travel sites out there today, you are probably asking why do you need a planner/agent/consultant (whatever term you want to use, we prefer consultant)? Or even, what is a travel consultant? And what can we do for you that you can’t do for yourself?
You have questions and we want to answer those. Let’s start with the “why” and the “what” to help give you more insight?
I recently had the opportunity to visit Fiji and experience this amazing destination first hand. This was my first visit and my expectations of what was in store were different from what I experienced. Not in a bad way, more so from a logistical standpoint, location of resorts, distance between them, etc. Things tend to look different on a map, remember that if you are trying to figure things out on your own.
As a travel professional, I tend to “compare” certain destinations that have similarities. Having traveled all over Mexico, the Caribbean and twice to Tahiti, I thought for sure it would be similar. What I found with Fiji is that you just cannot compare it to any other. I fell in love with just about everything from the moment I arrived, and I am sure you will too. Since there is far too much to put in one blog post I will break it up into several. Let’s start with the reasons I fell in love with Fiji and why I think you’ll love it for your honeymoon.
