the start of an adventure
Hello everyone, hope everyone is well. Man is Darwin ever hot, we went to Kakadu Park in the Northern Territories and man is it ever huge. It was interesting to learn about the Flood plains and the different seasons. There is lots of aboriginal rock art and signs of times thousands of years ago. Walking around you almost expect to see a dinosaur walk around..lol.. We camped in a permanent camp right in Kakadu, well I should say we shared it with the spiders, are they ever big. Then back to Darwin to stay for a night before heading off to Alice Springs, NO trip would be complete with me not losing my wallet….this time it got nicked with my bag….so here I am stuck in Darwin without even 5 cents….i just cant do things the easy way. My bus left without me so I had to figure things out, but because it happens so regularly it managed..lol…Thanks Denise for the funds and Stacey for the car rental…I ended up renting a car and driving myself through the desolate outback on my own…there were so many animals on the highway…it is a 1500 km drive, so I had to sleep
start of Kakadu Park
in the car, not fun in the absolute middle of nowhere…did I mention the snakes? But as usual I made it and am now in Alice Springs waiting to joining my tour tomorrow again…next we are off to Adelaide (6 days), should be good….well I hope everyone is healthy and happy an keep in touch….
