So I think I spent a bit too much visiting my cousins and nieces over the term break and had no more money left for the Grampian trip organised by ISSU. So, my group of friends and I decided to go on our own little road trip! Just 2 days and 1 heck of a night in the wild outback of Flinders Ranges.
We rented a car from Thrifty and zoom zoom!! Off we go!! We drove past a lot of towns and man, we are so careful because some of them really looked like a set of a Freddy movie!!
After five and a half hours of driving, we finally arrived at Flinders Ranges. I really like Australia’s natural terrains. The plants are so short and you could see really far away just standing at one spot. The night where we camped, ate camp food and slept in a tent! I swear there were animals lurking around our tents that night. Paul woke all of us up in the middle of the night around 2 am and there were sounds of animal tracking.
Overall I found this trip really refreshing and recharging. I’m a city boy, already struggling here in the suburbs of Adelaide. Going to the outback really let me see another side of the world other than the skyscrapers that I’m used to.
