Kings Canyon – Otherwise known as the destination for or final trek of the tour. This time covering 6.4km… not as much as our previous treks, but this one was a lot tougher; more hills, more height and more sweat!!!
Stuart Highway Layby! – Otherwise known as… my bed for tonight!! It wasn’t even a layby… just a smooth red dirt patch of land right by the Highway! Here was also the first night I spent in a swag… amazingly comfortable sleeping bags! God bless Aussie creations!!
Cooper Pedy – Otherwise known as the Opal Capital Of the World. Cooper Pedy is literally in the middle of nowhere. After driving for miles upon miles on never ending roads that seemed to disappear into the horizon, destination Cooper Pedy was upon me!! Here, the population is so low, that the headlines of the local newspaper on that day was that Robby was celebrating his 50th birthday!
Journal Entry : Part One
25/11 – “ 06.15… Wakey wakey!! Ugh… early morning is something I’ll have to get used to on this trip!! After a quick breaky round the table and trying to re-pack our backpacks again, we filled the bus and headed off on a wee walk along the roads of Angorichina, whilst the bus was getting fixed (due to the minor crash/stuck-in-creek-situation we had last night!).
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 :).
18/11 – “ This morning was free pancakes for breakfast!! They were lush, so thick and tasty!! Just like dad’s homemade, reminded me of home :). Linda joined me, Trace, Nadia and Jamie for our pancakes, and after the girls and Jamie left, me and Linda got chatting more. She was telling me how she was planning to go into the city to do a bit of touring, and asked if I’d like to join her. Seeing as I had no plans, I figured I’d jump at the chance!
