Backpacking, Round 2!! Surviving a 33-hour Journey & the Australian East Coast Adventure Begins 🌎

Aaaaaaaah here it finally is! 🙈 The gap year travel vlogs begin anew… this time, on the other side of the world. 🌎 I really hope you enjoy coming along on the craZy 33-hour journey to Sydney, featuring 3 flights, a layover in Taipei and some freak hailstorms.

I travelled with my friend Ceri, who I’ve known since Year 7! 🦋

Note: I received a discounted experience in certain hostels or gifted activities thanks to my YouTube channel and reaching out to companies! However, all my opinions are honest. 🥰

Hostel we stayed at in Sydney: Wake Up! (gifted) 🌻 absolutely loved them:

We booked our flight through the website SkyScanner, which allows you to compare prices, see the cheapest days to fly and generally helps you save money. Yes, our journey was 33 hours. But yes, we saved a lot of cash… 😉 We flew British Airway, KLM and China Airlines with no issues. 💛

I genuinely hope this all helps! x


  1. I keep rewatching this, I wanna be finished with school so bad, it’s only one year left

  2. I first watched this series last summer. I’ve always wanted to go to Australia and these videos have made me want to go even more 🙂 living vicariously through these until I can go hopefully in 2022!

  3. Watching this as an alternative to netflix as a way to get a positve vibe in lockdown!! ;))

  4. Don’t know why you lot just didn’t go for a Kuala Lumpur stop over 6/7 hours with Malaysian, I’m going home to Sydney and always had a kuala stop over. Yeah the hailstorm was pretty shit I rememeber that day.

  10. Hey Jade!
    First of all, I am such a fan of these travel vlogs! I have been saving up to go to Australia and I think I'll finally go next year, and these vlogs make me so incredibly excited!
    I was hoping you could make a video with backpacker tips, with things such as when you started booking your hostels, how you budgeted the trip, how you packed your suitcase and tips for on the way! It looks like you had an amazing time and had most of your things sorted so it would be so helpful to know how you did it!
    As for now keep up the crazy good editing because I'm just looooving these!!

  11. This makes me want to travel soooo bad. I wish I chocked afford to travel. I wish I had enough money in between high school and college
