Travel Bug: Australia

Australia is essentially one giant island. You’ll notice it in the higher prices, the laidback attitudes and the seemingly endless stretch of beaches. Oh, the beaches. Australian beaches are surprisingly dramatic: wide swaths of sand, crashing azure waves, menacing storm clouds that flash into sunshine in an instant. Locals shrug off the dangers of rip tides and one-sting-and-you’re-gone bluebox jellyfish with a “no worries, mate” as they expertly duck into the surf.
