darwin was pretty cool, enjoyed the beaches a lot especially mindil beach with it's sunset markets. i only stayed for a couple of days so didn't do too much around there..well i took the train on the 6th of juli from darwin to alice springs wich was lots of fun, i had a guy sitting next to me wich was pretty funny cauz he came up with a bottle of wine so we had a nice chat and fell asleep pretty soon...(blame the booze!! ) the next morning i arrived in alice springs, it was pretty cold, got on the hostel bus and drove through the rather boring and dusty city. at the hostel i met richard again who i was supposed to meet anywayz and we planned our tour to ayers rock, king's canyon and the olga's.
he drove from carns all the way to alice springs by himself and in mt. isa a spanish girl joined him, mireila. she wanted to come with us too so we decided to leave asap.
it was raining like hell but we went anyway, driving for about 300 k's to curtin springs where we made a camping stop. it was still raining and we thought our trip would end pretty soon, so all sad we went to sleep very early.
the next morning (6.30 am) we saw the sun at the horizon, we decided to go to ayers rock and the olga's first because kings creek, just before kings canyon, was flooded and we didn't want to take the risk. we fist went to the olga's and it was soooo amazing, we took the long walk for 7.5 k's wich was pretty hard but worth every minute, it took us 1.50 h. after that we went to uluru (ayers rock) and did the Male walk for 4 k's and after that we saw the sunset with was absolutely beautiful. after a long day we went to the camping just before the national park and stayed there the night.
the next morning we went to king's canyon, wich was about 200 k's away from uluru so we set off pretty early again. we arrived at about 10 am and we went for the canyon walk for 6 k's wich took us about 3hours, it was pretty hard because u had to walk all the way up the canyon and arround it. it was the most beautyfull thing i've ever seen...
the past 2 days we were sooo lucky, we arrived in pouring rain but we spent the days after in sunshine and heat. ehen we left off to alice springs again it started to get cloudy, so we had to be so lucky
well time's almost up, 2 mins left..
big hugs end kisses
