    Resting in Darwin

    April 22, 2017 in Australia

    Arrived here from Alice Springs yesterday. Got a haircut this morning, so I'm less of the wild woman of the outback.

    I'm amazed by how antiseptic and soulless my accommodation feels. It's clean and modern, vaguely 'swish' and utterly wrong for me. When I was planning I thought it would be just perfect, but I'd rather be in a backpacker hostel. Tokyo on Wednesday, so all is changing anyway ...

    Now I know it's obvious, but 33-34 C and humid is quite challenging! It's a long time since I've been in the tropics. Too hot to explore much.

    One of my Rock Wallabies gang arrived during the day and we had dinner together. Nice to feel that some connections will persist as folk head to all points of the compass.

    Heading Bush Day 10 - Alice Springs

    April 19, 2017 in Australia

    Final day of the most amazing adventure 😔

    Kinda odd to wake up and see where you are for the first time. There was a great short walk straight from the campsite up the hill with views over the Finke River again.

    En route to Alice Springs we stopped off at ochre pits and at Ellery Creek Big Hole for anyone who wanted a final swim.

    Then drop-offs in Alice and a final group meetup at Marco's for our farewell dinner, singing thank you to Heading Bush and Corbin. Thanks mate.Read more

    Heading Bush Day 8 - Watarrka

    April 17, 2017 in Australia

    Amazing walk (6.4km) at Watarrka (King's Canyon).

    Heading along the Larapita Drive (most beautiful red road) Corbin spotted a thorny devil at the side of the road, slammed the brakes on and ran back to pick it up to show us. They eat ants, several hundred a day. Good! Also saw our first camel. These days they are caught and exported back to the Middle East.

    On the same road I experienced a moment of utter beauty when we first caught site of Tnorala meteor crater. We visited the next day 😎

    Had a great campsite in woods, very soft ground so tricky to get the long drop toilet stable. Then the ants arrived. One person gave up in the night and slept in the van.

    Heading Bush Day 6 - Uluru

    April 15, 2017 in Australia

    Brill! We got to do almost all the Uluru base walk. It wasn't quite what I was expecting. The rock surface is rougher and the whole rock craggier than the impression I'd got from the usual shots. It's completely obvious why it was, and is, an important meeting place, set in the landscape as it is. In some areas photos are forbidden because they are sacred women's or men's places.

    Had the comfort of a formal campsite ... showers, the chance to do some washing, but also the strangeness of having other humans around.

    Went to the Cultural Centre in the afternoon.

    As thd day drew to an end we headed out to the Uluru sunset viewpoint, along with coach loads, hundreds, of other tourists. It seems the thing to do is have fizz and nibbles; we hadn't realised Corbin was planning the same for us. Magic, mate!

    Alice Springs

    April 20, 2017 in Australia

    I stayed at Alice Lodge - small backpacker place. Really friendly with great art in the shared spaces, including work by Tommy Crow who we met in Coober Pedy.

    Nice relaxed day getting my laundry done, posting obsolete stuff home and meeting up with a few of the Rock Wallabies heading bush gang for food 😎

    Crocodile Dundee

    July 31 in Australia

    We went to see the jumping Crocodiles today which was ok but I was honestly a little bit scared,especially when the woman in charge of our boat announced that we had no power steering only 15 mins into an hour long trip!!
    The Crocs are attracted to the boats engines and come along side, the woman in charge of the “no power steering boat” entices them with a chunk of pork on the end of a stick and waits until they have jumped out of the water 3 times before giving them the meat!
    We then had lunch at Adelaide river, which runs from Adelaide to Darwin, the girl serving us was from Riddlesden believe it or not 😀 We then visited the Adelaide River War Cemetery before heading back to Darwin.

    Ayers Rock

    July 27 in Australia

    After a slow start (no one could agree what to do!!!!) We then booked a sunset tour and set off to explore the rock. David went for a 10k walk around the base of the rock with no hat and no water.... and the rest of us drove around and took in the amazing views. This place has to been seen first hand to be believed and I would not have missed it for anything. We took too many amazing photos to post on here so here is a small selection.Read more

    Ayers Rock

    July 26 in Australia

    A long day today travelling to Uluru. We flew from Adelaide to Alice Springs then hired a 4x4 for a trip across the desert to Ayres Rock. It was dark when we eventually arrived so not seen a lot yet. However pictures of the journey for now. Amazing sunset en route 😊
