Happy (outback) campers

It is 11.23 am, we have been up since almost 8 hours, done a 6km rim walk and are now on our way back to the hotel Alice Springs. But this is only the conclusion of our 3-day camping trip around Uluru! This adventure, also know as my […]

Grampians National Park

On our way from Melbourne to Adelaide, we decided to visit the Grampians National Park. Neither of us had ever heard of this park before, so we were in for a big surprise. We started out at the Visitor Centre in Halls Gap to get a basic idea […]

Australia’s Tortuga

Today we set out to learn more about Sydney, Australia and the Australians. The best I thing I found out is that Sydney used to be a rum colony! After the first fleet (aka the first British settlers, mostly convicts) had arrived in Australia,  things started to get […]
