Hey everyone! As a part of blogging I have been asked to do a blog post about my dream vacation for one of Miss Teen Canada-World’s official sponsors, the travel company S-Trip! They will be awarding the lucky girl who wins the Social Media Queen award a trip! So here is mine!

A Kangaroo Leap Into The Outback!

Who would like to see a kangaroo?!


My dream vacation would be a long distance horseback ride across the breathtaking Australian Outback!

Inspiring this trip is the amazing Joe Guy (horse trainer, actor, author, motivational speaker, singer and songwriter). I met Joe last year at a local fair where he was demonstrating his colt breaking skills and technique. After his clinic I had an opportunity to chat with Joe and also purchased his book and DVD as well as a very useful bridle he designed himself.

Joe working his magic!

After reading Joe’s book and watching his DVD in a matter of days, I had found that Joe had ridden thousands of kilometers over the Outback of Australia (where he is originally from)! Learning many useful facts and lifelong lessons during the journey, Joe inspired me to take on the challenge of an incredible trip like this, one day!

I would take my sister, Madison and my best friend Mattea on this trip with me. With us all being “horse people” I figured this would be a great ride to take as we have spent many hours riding together before. And we could end our trip by spending some time at the beach in Sydney of course!

Having Joe Guy as our tour guide would be even more exciting!!! Or even if we saw him during our trip, haha!

I think Mattea and Madison would most enjoy the riding during the trip and the change of scenery. It would be quite a transition from south west Saskatchewan’s native prairie grasslands and rolling hills to the dry deserts and towering sand dunes of Australia’s Outback. I hope they would enjoy the simplicity of it all with just enough

supplies to survive, slowly making our way across the land. I wish they would forget their worries and live in the moment to fully embrace the trip and all it has to offer.

It would be great to travel with all my friends, of course! Although for this trip I may have to alter it a bit, seeing as some of my friends couldn’t stay on a horse if their life depended on it! But the different culture and landscape would definitely be enjoyed by all!

This would be my dream vacation sponsored by the outstanding travel company, S-Trip!
