Now take a peek at my itinerary and tell me what you’re most excited to see videos/pictures of… and OF COURSE I’ll bring you back presents (just like I did from New Zeland!) I’m thinking a cute Koala bear, yes? 🙂 Comment below if you like that idea and start thinking of what you’ll name him! (Nowshad has suggested “Kiki”)

An amazing project to host the world’s best bloggers (yay!) and invite them on some really amazing trips to Queensland, (double yay!) And because Queensland Tourism understands that travel-blogging can be as exhausting as it is fun, they’re ending our trip with a week-long stay at an amazing location (Room 753) that’s been designed with nomadic bloggers in mind! (Dear Queensland, have I told you I love you yet?) Check out some of my fellow world-bloggers and their Queensland experiences below!
