How to Spend Two Days on Fraser Island, Australia

How to Spend Two Days on Fraser Island, Australia

Spending Two Days on Australia’s Fraser Island

Located just off Australia’s east coast, Fraser Island is the largest sand island and the only sand-based rainforest in the world. To get to the 120-kilometer-long island, you need to take a ferry from Rainbow Beach or River Heads in Queensland. The ferries leave a couple of times a day. You can also take a car on board, which, in my opinion, is essential for any trip to the island. Fraser Island is best explored with a four-wheel drive, which you can rent yourself, or opt for a guided tour if you’re uncomfortable driving in the sand.

32 Perfect Solo Travel Quotes

Pin me!

It’s no surprise that I’m a believer in the power of solo travel.  Over seven years of exploring the world has made me appreciate the freedom of my own company, even in a place that is new to me.

Yet solo travel can be intimidating – especially at first. When I traveled to Bangkok by myself for the first time, I was nervous until the plane took off. But my other life-changing trips would not have happened if I never took that initial leap of faith.

The confidence to travel by yourself is more about your mind than it is about your abilities. Solo travel forces you to believe in your strength, and soon enough you’ll realize you can accomplish more than what you thought possible.

But if you still need that extra push to commit to your next adventure, take it from these 32 quotes that

The Best of Myanmar: The Full Itinerary

Pin me!

This post was originally written by Ryan Brun for BMTM in 2014. While much of what he wrote is still true and remains in this post, I visited again in 2020 and have updated the post as well as added in new resources and spots to see. Enjoy! -Kristin

Myanmar isn’t a Southeast Asian country that is often on travelers “must see” lists, or planned for their great backpacking adventure. Which is a shame, because Myanmar is one of the most culturally preserved and exciting destinations in Asia.

Why isn’t Myanmar on everyone’s “must do” lists?

It honestly wasn’t on my list until I was invited by a friend. Before traveling to Myanmar, I didn’t know anything about the country except about how it was closed off from the world up until about a couple decades ago.

After backpacking through a large portion of Myanmar during their annual
