When I read Macca’s post this week I knew exactly what was going to be my photo of the week this week…
C and I spent over 6 weeks, driving over 5000km down the East Coast of Oz in early 2012.
It is fair to say, life on wheels takes a few days to adapt to, especially that we’ve never done it before but boy is it worth it! Not only for the stunning views you wake up to every day that Macca talks about in ‘Park Life in Australia’ but also the interactions and new friends you make while on the road.
And by that I don’t necessarily mean other backpackers and travellers but some of these guys:
I thought it’d be best to just share some of the pics above as words can’t describe Australian wildlife. Apart from plenty of sanctuaries and nature reserves where you can see rainbow coloured birds, kangaroos and koalas all you really need to do is pay attention and look around you when camping.
All of the pics I shared with you today I took in various places alongside the East Coast, whether directly on a campsite or wandering around. It’s just amazing!
Even though, when travelling in a tiny camper as this is all you can afford as backpacker may seem a bit of a pain. (I won’t lie, we had a few sleepless nights as it was just to hot to sleep.) Your dirty feet and chipped nail polish won’t matter as what you see around you blows you away each day, every day! So think twice when you make a decision between jumping on a bus where you can only stop when they let you or actually having a jelly bean on wheels as your home for a few week, which I promise you’ll never forget and once done once you’d want to repeat over and over again.
Well… apart from meeting those lovely ‘little’ huntsman spiders that sometimes decide to visit when you wake up in the morning (the only wildlife I didn’t get to photograph as I was too busy freaking out)!
Till next week x
