Hi, I’m Kendall! I’m originally from California and moved to Sydney in 2017 to be with my partner, Glenn. After I moved here, I jumped straight into a full-time office job in the city. I loved it, but I couldn’t stop feeling like I was really missing out. I moved halfway across the world to a new country and I had barely even seen it!
Glenn and I didn’t have a car either, so we felt really stuck in the city. We decided to buy a van for weekend trips to get away from the hustle and bustle. This is when we absolutely fell in love with the ‘vanlife’ lifestyle! We realised quickly we didn’t need as many ‘things’ as we thought to be truly happy, and that being on the open road together was where we really felt at peace. So, we both eagerly jumped on the idea of doing it full-time and finally seeing all of Australia. This was hands down the best decision we ever made!
We soon found ourselves in beautiful Queensland and it came with many surprises! I was absolutely blown away by the number of waterfalls we came across. And they were all so close to one another! Each special in it’s own way. (I knew there were beautiful falls in Queensland, but I definitely didn’t expect to see that many). Wallaman Falls, Josephine Falls, Millaa Millaa Falls, Purling Brook Falls, Windin Falls...the list seriously goes on and on!
I was also surprised by how much of Queensland’s coastline is a ‘no-go’ zone for swimming at the beach because of crocodiles and stingers. Being at some of the most gorgeous beaches up north and not being able to go in the ocean was the ultimate tease!
