Red Sand

How would I describe the Australian Outback? Maybe as an emptiness that is not empty but full of life. The prominent color is red. Red sand. Red rocks. Red dust.

I was on a 5 day tour with “Mulgas Adventures” – for everybody who’s interested in doing such a journey, it was just amazing. I guess it’s not too difficult doing the trip on your own with your own car, but I liked the guided tour a lot. You get to know so many new people and share the adventure with them. You learn about Aboriginal culture, sleep under the stars in a sleeping bag, sing songs at the bonfire and of course: Hike a lot and see Uluru (Ayers Rock), Kata Tjuta (the Olgas), Kings Canyon and the Devils Marbles on the way from Alice Springs to Darwin.

If you ever do a journey like this just make sure you have LOTS of water with you and protect yourself from the sun, you would never guess how cruel the heat is out here! But right now I guess you are sitting in a nice comfy seat, not too hot, not too cold, so just have a look at these photos and enjoy… 🙂
