NEW VIDEO: Surprised My Mother At Disney Orlando!

As some of you may know, I am currently in Australia travelling and working.
I decided to save up some money as I heard that my family are heading to Walt Disney World in the summer whilst I am here.

So, me and my family (minus my mother) made lots of plans and completely pulled off this huge surprise of me turning up to Walt Disney World to surprise my mother!
She had no idea whatsoever and our flights were so well scheduled that I arrived 20 minutes before everyone else!

Check out my vlog below to get the whole story!


I hope you enjoyed this and there will be so many more videos coming up of my travels and even Walt Disney World!

TRAVEL LOG 02.03.15 – 16.03.15

02/03/15 I bumped into Isabel in the toilets this morning, so I have hung around with her and her friends all day! Everyone is so nice, and we went for dumplings for our lunch!

04/03/15 It’s the first day of the F1 set up today – there was a lot of lifting, unloading, construction and I know I will aching in the morning haha! But it was so much fun and I met some more new people!
I cannot wait for the F1 to actually start!

05/03/15 I am currently in Starbucks catching up with some blog posts, just phoned Barb for the first time and am hoping to go to H&M to get some basics for farming.
I had lunch cooked for me today by my two new asian friends, which was really nice of them.
I check out tomorrow to go to Urban Central and I just booked my day tour to Great Ocean Road!

06/03/15 I went back to Starbucks today so I could catch up on blog posts and everything – not much happened! Just getting ready for tomorrow!

07/03/15 I went on my trip to the Great Ocean Road today – it was amazing, I loved it! I saw some wild koala bears, went into a rainforest, visited several gorgeous beaches and then saw the twelve apostles!

08/03/15 I started back at work again today, setting up more stands for the F1 Grand Prix. Although, I drove on the race course today!

09/03/15 I went to work again today, same thing really. Just had an induction as well for a little bit, got to know which marquee I was working on and that was about it! My logs will probably be really boring until Thursday, so I won’t write much here.
I also saw loads of amazing hot air balloons everywhere this morning, so pretty!

10/03/15 I drove on the circuit again today, in the work van! It was such an experience whilst all of the signs and fences were up – I took a video which I will try to post onto my blog, too! I will do a mini YouTube video as well, although I haven’t filmed much yet!
We also got to see people pulling out all of the bollards on the track for the race, which must’ve taken hours and hours to do! We also saw them repainting the sponsors signs all around the track, although they looked perfect from last year – it’s still not good enough! 😀

11/03/15 I saw some of the safety cars driving around the track today as they closed it for practises, so good! I also heard a lot of the drivers testing last night – exciting!

12/03/15 The Formula One is finally starting! Today is Corporate Day mainly, and some of the general public can come in too. It’s pretty quiet so far, but it will be a lot busier over the next three days! We have already sold out of so much stock already, on the first day – crazy!
I heard a lot of the cars practising today and managed to run up onto the grandstand at 7am to take a video whilst one came past – it was so fast though that I couldn’t even see who it was driving!

13/03/15 It’s the first main day of the Grand Prix! I got to wonder around Albert Park on my breaks, so I went to see the Opening Ceremony cars that the drivers arrive in – too cool!

14/03/15 Today is Qualifying Day! I sat by the screens on my break to watch it, sadly McLaren did not do very well but it was still so exciting to watch! The atmosphere was crazy!

15/03/15 Today is the last day of the Formula One Grand Prix – so sad! Everything has been so exciting, and although it’s the main race today, it will all be over straight afterwards.

After the race finished, I heard a load of hysterical screaming and shouting coming from the grandstand, so I ran up to have a look and people were waiting for the drivers to come out.
I got to see Rosberg, which was amazing! Sad to be finishing my work here!

16/03/15 My first day off in ages, today I am getting myself organised for tomorrow as I fly back to Sydney to go farming. I have packed my backpack whilst drinking a celebratory ‘Well Done Zoe, You worked hard’ cider and a Kinder Bunny. I also went to the post office to send a box to my parents with a few bits of merchandise from the Formula One for them, as they’re very jealous that I was working there!

Did you guys watch the Grand Prix? Or visited the Great Ocean Road? It was definitely one of my favourite places so far, with Byron Bay!

My Work Australia Experience So Far..

IT’S 6 MONTHS SINCE I STARTED MY TRAVELS!
I thought that now is the time to come up with a mid-way conclusion of my Australia Trip so far!

10408186_10152740022262362_7654015926494309255_n
So much has happened within the last 6 months since being on my BUNAC Work Australia programme and I have already got so many incredible memories to share with family and friends!
Although, I have been working a lot since I got here, I have met some of the most incredible people from all around the world. I wouldn’t change them for anyone else, we have all stuck by each other at all times.
I feel so thankful that I have been able to make such amazing friends, and the fact that I will always be able to visit them around the world, no matter where they are – and I can do the same for them!

I have visited some of the most beautiful places in Australia, learnt about different cultures and I can’t wait to learn and see a lot more!

I have been in Sydney for 5 months feeling more like a working resident there and having gained so many Australian friends, then I went to Gold Coast to experience some of their theme parks, Byron Bay was a day trip last week which was one of the most beautiful beaches I have visited so far and now I am in Melbourne for a short period of time to work before heading off to a very nice sounding farm to work for my second year visa.

I can’t believe that all of this has happened in 6 months and I now have another 18 months left of travelling!
I highly recommend that you all try to save to come travelling, as I have become a much more independent person who now doesn’t mind hopping from hostel to hostel on my own!

Have you guys gone backpacking/travelling before?
I would love to hear some of your travel stories, good and bad! 😀

New Vlog: Gold Coast, Cyclone Time.

Melbourne Trip!

A little unexpected trip to Melbourne – which was so much fun!
I had a job interview with one days notice, so I booked a flight straight away and luckily it was on my two days off of work! So, I headed straight for Melbourne!

On my first day, I decided to walk all the way up to Queen Victoria Markets and get some food there as I was starving since the plane! I then strolled around the streets of Melbourne looking for some cool coffee shops and stores – I even came across H&M at GPO!
I did so much stuff in one day, I ended up going to ACMI (Australia Centre of Moving Image) which was free and a lot of fun to see! It is about technology, how film, games and television became! They had a lot of interactive stuff too, for people that are more hands on too!

After ACMI, I visited Sealife Melbourne as I have a Merlin Unlimited Pass in Sydney which lets me visit any of them in Australia. So I went here for a browse as it was chilly outside! It was a lot of fun and I had a lovely surprise when I saw that they had some adorable penguins!

The next day, I went to my job interview (got the job!) and came back for a stroll around the city again. Turns out, one of my friends from the hostel was in Melbourne for a few weeks – so she decided to show me around and to take me to some cool places like Manchester Press which is a really cool, out of sight cafe/restaurant (amazing bagels!).

After Issy showing me all of the cool graffiti and coffee shops, I sadly had to go to the airport to fly back to Sydney – although I loved Melbourne, I still miss my little Sydney hostel family! But all in all, productive last minute trip, got a job and a great experience there!

Have you been here before? Recommend me some cool places to go, when I go back! 🙂
I will be posting a video of Melbourne up here soon!
