I have had the best experience of my life this past year so I thought I would share it with you all....
We drove 36,000 kms around Australia in 4x4 with a roof top tent
Jan 09 - Jul 09
The size of the country is mind blowing and you just don't understand that until you drive around it!!
It is such a beautiful place with so much to see. 7 months was not enough to do it all but we gave it our best shot!
Not a huge % of the trip was 4x4 but we did do Birdsville track, big red, cape york, coffin bay, bungle bungles etc
These are truly wilderness areas and should not be taken lightly. We did driver training and always carried plenty of fuel, food and water.
During the trip I found a new love - Photography. I find that I see a potential picture in everything these days. My biggest problem is how to get the camera to do the scene justice. Just need to keep practicing I guess. Still struggling in a big way with getting the whole image in focus. Understanding focal length and DoF is proving tricky.
Most of the pictures I have here for sale on DT are from our big trip and if I could do it again knowing what I know now there would be many many more...
We are in the middle of writing a blog (63 posts long) about the whole trip, the final state - Queensland is still a work in progress
(The blog runs a bit back to front so if you want to go from the beginning use the date selector on the right hand side of the screen)
I am back at work now and just want to be back on the road, I miss the freedom a lot. Such a great country to travel!!
Hope you enjoy our little adventure...
