Only five of us were on the bus to Coober Pedy. An English couple called Becky and Chris, a German fella called Fabien and an annoying Scottish girl Louise. The tour guide I think he said he was called Bill was also a bit of an arse. Maybe it was my last tour was that good that I didn't really get into this, or maybe it was just that it was lots of driving and nothing much to see. On the way there our stops were merely toilet breaks and fuel stops. The most exciting stop being The South Australian / Northern Territory border. Eventually though we arrived in Coober Pedy, the Opal capital of the world. What is also special about Coober Pedy is that 60-70% of the town's population live underground. We did a tour of the Opal museum which was ok, and then went to have dinner where I had my first taste of Emu; it was on a pizza with Kangaroo known as the coat of arms. I'm not sure it was actually Emu though as just tasted like Sausage. After dinner we made our way to our accommodation which was just a cave in a hill. It was like a really really s*** version of Batman's cave.
The next day we awoke at 5am to head do the 800km trek to Adelaide. Nothing that exciting to report apart from seeing two wild emus. I could see why the tour got the nickname the sleeping tour as I slept most of the way back to Adelaide.
We eventually made it though so until next time stay safe and take care
