Going ... going ... Ghan!

, Prev Next

Hi, everyone. It's been a bit non-stop for me, lately ... no sooner did I get back from a whistle-stop tour of south-east Asia did I pack my thongs and beach towel to prepare for this week's show, which is all about Australia's best beaches.

It was my kind of 'hard research', I'll tell you what! The gang and I had a great time covering all the sand, sun and surf you can dream of in Oz ... which is quite a lot!

And now I'm packing my bags for the next adventure, which is going to be a dream come true for me. I'm flying up to Darwin so I can travel on the Ghan! I can't tell you how excited I am for this trip. The Ghan exudes all the glamour of the Orient Express, but travels through some of Australia's most epic landscapes. I've never seen some of the places we'll travel through, and I absolutely can't wait. We'll be exploring places like Katherine and Alice Springs along the way, and eventually ending up in beautiful Adelaide.

Did I mention I'm excited?! The Ghan is meant to be a once-in-a-lifetime journey, so I know I'm quite a lucky girl!

Have a fantastic week, everyone, and I hope you enjoy the beach bonanza this Thursday night!
