The Dolomites mountain range in northern Italy is what dreams are made of for photographers and outdoor adventures. There's plenty to explore for hikers and road trippers alike.
Italy is not the cheapest destination for budget travellers, but the good news is that a visit to the capital of Rome doesn’t have to break the bank. There's plenty of attractions you can see for free if you know where to look.
If you’re toying with the idea of a gap year, you’ve probably come across the concept of au pairing.
An au pair is a live in position where you look after children in return for board and food. You will also receive a small payment (basically pocket money) of around $100 AUD per week. Reasons people want an au pair is for a variety of reasons, but the most common ones are that they want their kids to learn another language or they would prefer their child be at home with someone rather than going to childcare.
