Thank You! – The Blog Is Back & Going To Be Better Than Ever

by Zac George

I know I know, the lack of posts the past year (almost 2) has been pretty disappointing, I first of all want to sincerely apologise for that. I hate making promises that I can’t keep and unfortunately I kept making a habit of that on the blog – I’d take time away and there’d be near to no posts, well I’m happy to write, that’s no longer going to be the case.

If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, you may have seen a post regarding my absence, if you don’t, here’s a brief rundown. Turning 18 definitely had it’s benefits, being able to access lounges legally, checking into hotels legally and also being able to take full advantage of the the beverage selections before, during and in some cases, after flights.

Unfortunately for me, I’m someone who can be very easily influenced and I regret to say, I was falling into the wrong type of crowd. Instead of writing and doing what I absolutely love, I was out partying and being an idiot – I’m don’t want any sympathy at all for that, it was soo stupid and looking back it now, makes me soo sad.

The readership on this blog varies and I have quite a large number of readers who are quite young and I just want to send a message to you, don’t let others influence you in a negative way and even if you feel the slightest feeling they are – remove yourself from the negativity, it’ll save your life. Follow your dreams and strive for being successful in the right way.

I’m happy to say, I’ve cut a lot of people out of my life who were starting to bring me down and I also had a lot of people close to me make me realise what I was doing with my time was dumb and it made me realise how much I missed writing. Without negativity and bad influences, I’ve become a lot happier and concentrated on what I love to do and that’s write about travel and help people travel for less.

I’m back travelling again and I don’t want to stop. I want to build the blog up again and make it bigger than what it was, and that really excites me. I’m currently in Queenstown, NZ enjoying the beautiful scenery and I’ve got a ton of content that’ll be posted as time goes on.

Queenstown, NZ.

As a teaser, here’s a couple of photos of one of the reviews currently being written and prepared, a stay at the W Brisbane in the Extreme EWOW Suite.

I’ve got a load of content that’ll be posted as time passes and I can’t wait to showcase that with you guys.

I just want to thank everyone that’s stuck around and continued reading the blog. As well as readers and other writers that have continued to assist and inspire me to keep writing – you don’t know how much that means.

Welcome to the blog if you’re new and please make yourself comfortable.

“out partying and being an idiot”

Don’t worry: at 18 you have a ‘get-out-of-jail-free’ card. It does expire, though.

Plus, out partying and being an idiot at 18?

It’s not doing that which brings regrets.

If I didn’t stop, I’d be going down a bad path and it was starting to go that way. Im back doing what I love and wouldn’t change it for the world.

You were self aware enough to realise what was happening, which is a good thing. I look forward to seeing more posts (I’m a new blog reader). But don’t miss out on all the fun! Everything in moderation, right?

Zac George February 19, 2019 - 7:31 pm

First of all, welcome! Definitely not going to miss out on the fun, just had to get back on track and a drink or a few with friends and family is always good fun 😉

Welcome back to the community Zac, it is brave you shared the honest truth of your absence and from that you have already grown from your experiences.

Life is full of adventures.
Live the journey.

I’ve always said, an intimate drink with a friend (whether new or old) at a nice wine bar trumps partying and getting trashed any day. Part of travel is going out and tasting the world (and writing home about it on this blog). Look forward to reading!

Dear Zac its wonderful you are back. We all tend to go off track at your age but you learn from your mistakes, you refocus and follow your dream. Move on and move forward and dont lose sight of what your ultimate goal is!

You got onto Boarding Area because of your relationship with Ben schlappig as a fellow homosexual. None of your posts are insightful or worthwhile. Compared to local Australian websites like,, not the plethora of information on AFF and FT.

You are a conceited douche that doesn’t deserve any accoldaes nor the prime spot you have attained on BA via whatever sexual means from Ben.

I dare you to post this you coward.

That’s cute of you, how thoughtful. Just keep spending time making fake accounts and hating on me all you like, just makes me want to keep posting more and more 🙂

Welcome back.

Just a tip – if you’re going to do this properly you really need to be publishing a minimum of 3 posts each weekday, ideally 4 or 5 a day.

Many full time bloggers write more than that ; P

We’re all here if you need help in the future. The blogger community has your back!

Good to see you back, posting and enjoying what you do. I agree with Billy Bob above, don’t kick yourself for what has already been done. No point in regretting it, rather, take it all as learning experience.

Also fwiw your email address has bounced back.

Test Post… made a comment but it didn’t show up.

I’ve got a issue with my spam filter atm so have to manually go through every comment, should be fixed shortly. Sorry about that 🙂
