solo australia trip
Growing up, I remember this drive taking eons. Today it was over in a flash - I've certainly learned a thing or two about distance and patience on this trip.

It was great driving through all the little towns I remember - they simply haven't changed in the last ten years. Bluff, Emerald, Anakie, Alpha - sleepy little sunburnt spots where time is clearly standing still.

Once in Rocky I washed the car to get rid of what must have been 15 kilo's of dead locust and grasshopper carcasses glued to the front, and then went and caught up with Andrew and the other guys at the UNI, did a bit of geeking out.
