Adventures in flat fields
I’ll admit. When I travel, I get a bit ambitious. I look at the destination and justify in my head whether or not I think i can make it in an appropriate amount of time. Nine times out of 10, I overshoot it and then get frustrated that I didn’t reach my destination.
But, I frickin impressed myself!
Driving from Sydney South Australia, there’s a lot of this…
and a lot of this too…
See where I’m going?
Yeah, so naturally.. it’s a bit boring.. but I’m not sure if it’s some sort of magical trance or I was abducted by aliens that somehow speed up the traveling process.. but I ended up here in no time…
Welcome to Hells gate. This is a few hours outside of Hay – my destination that I wanted to stop at at least.. That record was smashed in no time.. and we kept going and going… basically down a paved road that you could curl up and take a nice nap on – since we didnt see a car pass for over an hour.
Here’s a shot of ‘nothing’ in the other direction. (don’t tell dad that i’m lying in the middle of the road)
So we made it to Mildura –
Ah Mildura – a few friends of mine went on a rescue mission to save a friend from fruit picking there… and their car blew up, so we had a bit of a moment of silence and chuckle that we in fact made it there in one piece 1020k’s from Sydney.
Then, Victoria.. .
And.. South Australia… that’s when we called it quits… and had a nice snooze travelers style in Renmark!
so, it’s safe to say that you can cover three states in a day…
stay tuned for part two…
