I reckon everyone should keep a journal of some kind when they go travelling.
My main reason for keeping one is purely down to the fact that I’ve got one hell of a scattered memory! I often can’t remember what I had for dinner the other night; let alone what I did over a month ago! So, keeping a journal for the year that I was away in Aus seemed like a good idea! I didn’t like the idea of coming home, to find that I had forgotten almost everything I had just done!
I am currently working on my “Where I’ve Been” section of my blog, which will include plenty of my journal that I have been keeping up to date (although I’ve often fallen behind with it!) since I started my travels almost 6 months ago.
If you fancy having a read of the stuff I’ve been up to, here’s the link to it… “Where I’ve Been“.
Like I say though, I’m still working on it, so theres plenty more to come! I’ll keep you updated when I add more journal entries 🙂
Clare & Melrose – Otherwise known as the beginnings of my experience in the Outback! As I sat in the back of the mini bus driving along the roads with some tunes blaring out the speakers, I had an array of views to look at. Through Clare, we had masses upon masses of vineyards. South Australia is famous for its wine, and even holds the like of Jacobs Creek wine here… yum yum!! Melrose sat at the base of a beautiful mountain, and the very beginnings of the Flinders Ranges. Amazing.
23/11 – “We trammed it to Glenelg today. Where the beach belongs!! After buying a few postcards, with the intention of writing them very soon, we grabbed the tram ($8! Rip off!), to Glenelg… a lovely little suburb that hugs the coastline. We didn’t spend too much time here as we had Haigh’s chocolate factory in mind!
Adelaide – Otherwise known as the capital of South Australia! State no.2 that I visited in Aus! Not a massive city, but that’s what I loved about it. Not much of a city fan to be honest, so this place was just right. Arrived here with my new travel mate Linda, who I met in Melbourne :).
14/11 – “We checked out of our hostel at 10am, and like we did back at Base, we stayed up in the tv lounge till we grabbed a taxi to the airport.
