A few weeks ago, I found myself in the middle of a long ocean journey to explore the deep waters of the Australian mainland.
I was in my first year of university in Melbourne when I embarked on a journey of discovery.
I had been looking for the most remote location in the world for a decade, and now I was looking for something totally new.
I wanted to see what the ocean looked like on the surface of the planet.
This was the year before I graduated and I had a few months to explore what life is like at sea.
I spent a week in Fiji, then flew to Australia to take part in an expedition.
The journey took us over 2,000km.
We were in the heart of a vast and beautiful Pacific.
The voyage was an incredible experience for me, as it allowed me to get up close and personal with some of the world’s most beautiful creatures.
In the middle was the Australian coastline, with an abundance of life, and an abundance on our doorstep.
I would have been lying if I didn’t admit I felt a bit like a voyeur on the journey.
There were no barriers, no barriers to enter or leave.
I just had to be there.
There are plenty of stories about people who have had their lives changed by a journey to a new location.
One of the most interesting stories that I heard about came from an Australian couple who took their family to see the Great Barrier Reef.
When they first got there, they were excited to see a different reef, but they were surprised to discover that the Great Black Spot was only visible for a few days a year.
They decided to keep visiting, and they have been going ever since.
I thought, what an incredible journey that is.
It was so much fun.
In fact, my friends and I started to have so much more fun that we were really struggling to make it to our destination on time.
We spent two months in the Great White Shark Sanctuary, where we explored the reef and were lucky enough to meet and greet the Great Blue Heron.
It is amazing to see that people are able to make the trip for so little money.
I also discovered the amazing world of seabirds.
When I went on an expedition in 2014, I got a chance to meet a lot of these wonderful creatures.
They were just so beautiful and unique.
There was even a young boy who had his entire family up close, including his mother, and was so scared to even leave the sanctuary.
But we all loved him so much, and he was so happy that we got to visit with him and his family.
In 2014, the Great Barrens National Park was declared a national park and there are still lots of places to explore.
I can’t imagine a more incredible experience than that.
I feel lucky to have experienced such a life changing voyage, and I can only imagine what it is like to see our ocean and our environment change.
But now I have found a new way of living my life.
I’m not sure I would be able to do it if I had never been on a boat.
I love living off the land.
But I also love to explore our ocean, and seeing everything that it has to offer.
I have always loved to travel, but I feel like I have never been able to experience it in such a beautiful way.
It’s just been such a privilege to explore this amazing ocean.
I hope that by following in my footsteps, I can one day be able as a person to explore these amazing places that we all love to visit.
