My Trip To OZ – Australia

I wanted to take the opportunity to tell you guys more about my journey to OZ, which by the way is a synonym for Australia for those who don’t know. I started my trip in April 2011 and spent a couple of weeks travelling up Australia’s east coast from Sydney to Cairns. Then I flew right into the middle of nowhere and visited Alice Springs and the famous Uluru. After my visit to the Aboriginal sanctuary, I took a train called Ghan and arrived in Darwin, which is the biggest city in the Northern Territory.

After a couple of hot days in Darwin, I started my journey down Australia’s beautiful west coast and stopped in Kununurra, Broome and Exmouth. I did some snorkeling in Exmouth, which was amazing! Finally in August 2011, I arrived in Perth, where I stayed for a couple of weeks as it’s one of the most amazing cities I’ve ever been to.

Let me tell you this: I actually don’t want to write a lot about the trip, I’d rather prefer to show you. So here are some of the photos I’ve taken including my own commentary here and there. I hope that you find today’s post interesting and if you would like to have more posts of this kind, please do let me know!
