Jessica is verslaafd geraakt aan Australië sinds zij 4 maanden gewoond heeft in Sydney en daarna dit prachtige land is doorgereisd. Hoogtepunten van de reis vond zij de Red Centre met de imposante Uluru rots en de prachtige gekleurde zonsondergangen en de Great Barrier Reef. Ook Nieuw Zeeland heeft veel indruk op haar gemaakt, met haar favoriet Mt. Cook. Fiji is de kers op de taart! Een magische bestemming om nooit te vergeten en absoluut de moeite waard om een bezoek aan te brengen!
