As an American, I had no idea what Australian footy was all about. I went to the Optus Stadium and watched a game. It was a blast and was exciting to watch! I scored a ticket in the 5th row and was invited to the VIP room!
Perth is the world’s most isolated capital city. It’s designated as the sunniest capital city in the world. It’s a beautiful city, combing city and nature.
Just then, I noticed Billy and Apple standing to my left…outside of their pen! I panicked. I hadn’t closed the gate to their property, and they could escape the whole property. I set the food down and raced twenty feet to the gate and closed it. I noticed the first section of the electric fence that was near the metal gated fence had fallen. It was still making a crackling noise, so I knew it was live. My heart started racing! I was terrified the goats would run away.
I was accepted to house and cat-sit in Bridgetown, Western Australia. I ended up also feeding two goats each day. The homeowner and I became instant friends.
Esperance, Western Australia has some of the most beautiful beaches that I’ve ever seen! During my drive there, I also met some fun characters.
Norseman is the first town I arrived at after driving across the Nullarbor. I stayed at a hotel that was above a bar in an old Victorian building. Walking down the hallway was like walking into The Shinning.
Driving the Nullarbor Plain is like driving through Kansas. It’s more remote than driving to Alaska through the Yukon in Canada.
I ended up in the corner of the yard in an old indoor/outdoor shed full of random tools. Dust and rust covered most of the items. There was a dummy dressed in old clothes that was hunched over in a strange position. It looked like something out of a horror movie. I started to freak out a little bit as Allan continued to follow me around the isolated corner.
Solo traveling gives you the opportunity to meet people from all sorts of backgrounds. One evening in Australia, I met someone at a high level in politics.
I bought a used car in Adelaide and within less two weeks, one tire had a slow leak. I was also told that I needed four new tires. I decided to go back to the dealer and ask for the money.
Clare in South Australia offers many wineries that are easily accessible by riding a bike on a beautiful dirt path. I recommend using e-bikes.
The Oodnadatta Track in Australia’s outback is a corrugated road in the desert, and offers amazing sunsets. You’ll also find abandoned ruins to explore.
Alice Springs is a remote desert town. We checked out the desert park and explored downtown. We came across a strange candy lady.
Australia’s “red center” offers a true outback experience. From hiking Uluru, camping, riding a camel into the sunset, and hiking Valley Of The Winds.
As we drove hundreds of miles in the red center of Australia, Brittany felt worse by the minute. What do you do when you’re sick in the middle of nowhere?
Coober Pedy has a lot to see – from underground homes, an underground church, old mine shafts, and a vast desert. It’s truly a unique town.
There are 2,000 unsolved missing persons, 500 unidentified remains. The majority of Australia is a vast desert, making it the perfect place to kill.
It’s complicated buying a car in Australia when you’re American, but it’s the best way to drive into the outback.
