Travel, Australia

For as long as I can remember I have always dreamed of going to Australia.  This dream may become a reality in the near future for me, so I've been thinking of what the trip would involve.  Obviously my camera and photography equipment would make the trip along to Australia.  The trip would include a variety of activities.

First on my list of things to do in Australia is to fly into Perth, which is on the west coast of Australia.  Once in Perth I would get a feel for the city, and rent a 4x4 truck in order to get wherever I wanted to go.  I would probably go on a few photography runs trying to find the most beautiful scenes near the city.

Next, I would embark on a journey of epic proportions.  With my rental 4x4 I would drive to the very middle of the continent and have a look at Ayers Rock, also known as Uluru.  This is a large structure with significant meaning to the aborigines in the area.  Many tourists rudely climb on it, and in doing so disrespect the beliefs and feelings of the aborigines.

Finally the last major thing I would plan on is seeing a wombat.  I have a strange obsession with these marsupials.  They just strike a chord within me that I cannot quite explain.

Obviously the trip would have a lot more to it, I would plan on being there for at least 3 weeks.  The majority of my activities would be unplanned and spontaneous, I find in journeys that is where the most exciting and memorable things occur.  I have included a video showcasing some of Australia's beauty and wonder.  Enjoy:)

  1. Long Distance training can be a positive & constructive form of selfishness. After all, once you're at the starting line, you're there by yourself. No one can run a single step for you. No one can jump in & help you. No one but you can make the decisions about what to do to keep going. It's all up to you. Cheap Flights to Perth | Flights to Perth | Cheap Air Tickets to Perth
