Here are my top five experiences. What are yours?
Leon shares his 2018 travel highlights and asks you for yours

It’s been a big year in travel. Personally, my highlights included a visit to Vietnam, crewing a tall ship in the Whitsundays, driving across Tasmania's west coast in winter and finally having my first Top End experience.

I was lucky to be a guest with some great organisations, such as Webjet Exclusives, Asia Vacation Group, Tourism Tasmania, Tourism NT, Tourism Whitsundays and Hilton Double Tree. I was treated so well and I can highly recommend using these vendors and visiting these states for a ripper holiday.

If I had to choose my top travel experience of the year, I'd have to spend a year thinking about it. So, I'll give you my top five (in no particular order):

  • Riding through the streets of Hoi An in Vietnam (and getting temporarily lost) at night with my now good friend Elspeth Callender (as a guest of Webjet Exclusives and Asia Vacation Group)
  • Cruising the Gordon River in Tasmania with Gordon River Cruises
  • Sitting under a waterfall at a secret pool at Buley Rockhole in Litchfield Park (as a guest of Tourism NT), with dinner that night at Hanuman as a guest of renowned restaurateur, Jimmy Shu (what a guy!)
  • Driving through the snow through the alpine ranges on the coast of Tasmania (as a guest of Tourism Tasmania)
  • Being part of the Derwent Hunter crew and sailing through the Whitsundays (as a guest of Tourism Whitsundays)

Honestly, I could name more, and naming my top five was tough. But I'd like to know your 2018 travel highlights, so why not share them with me?
