I think I like having no phone – occasionally. Have spent the last few days in Karijini National Park, and it’s up there as a contender for a favourite of the trip. It’s hard to pin down exactly why some places give you an energy, but this one did for me. Maybe it’s because I … More A contender for favourite place so far….
Today I am in Millstream National Park, complete with a new tent. I was camping under trees last night and the birds have very kindly christened it. Hopefully that means good luck. They also just shit on my shoulder as I was about to eat my dinner. Guess that means I am lucky they missed … More Catching up with myself and dreaming of a healthier body

In the meantime, here are some pictures I … More Postcards from the road
So, just over a week in and already a deviation from the plan (as bald as it is!) The weather wasn’t co-operating with my beach plans, so I headed inland to a place called Carnarvon Gorge.
