As some of you might know I've been battling with a back indury for some time and after things took a turn for the worse last year I've barely been in a boat. My passion for competition is still in mind but my focus will first be to fully recover before putting my body through any paces.
With that in mind I've taken the opportunity to explore some of the world without paddling being the focus and landed in Australia to see if the grass really is greener on the otherside.
I arrived in Perth in early January and embarked on a road trip along the south coast before heading north with Brisbane the final destination.
Stay tuned to see what I've been getting up to down under.
