Just a quick update- I just got done with a 3 day tour around the outback. It was pretty awesome to learn all about the Aboriginal culture and to meet new people. Everyone on my tour was about the same age so we had lots of laughs.
To get the full feeling of the outback, we even slept under the stars in our sleeping bags. It got a little chilly but we had a huge fire going. The stars were amazing!
We also visited Uluru, King's Canyon, and Kata Tjuta and did lots of hiking! I loved seeing the little towns where the petrole station was also a hotel, home, campground, store, pub, restaurant, showers, etc. The outback was a lot different than I expected but still really nice- we even got to see a herd of camels walking through!
Today I leave for Cairns where I'll be for a couple of days before Mom and Dad arrive. It sounds nice just to lay on the beach and relax!
