I'm Back Baby!

Honey I'm home!

Friday, October 24, 2008

I've been a bit of a tourist lately. It's been great! Yesterday I went to Uluru with Jess & Tiff and we walked around the base of the rock. It was hot and long, but beautiful and worthwhile. It took a bit over 3 hours to walk the 9.4km. Then we headed over to the cultural centre to have a look around. Then back home for a swim and back to the sunset viewing point at sunset for a lovely view of Uluru with wine and nibbles. Lovely! Then this morning I got up to watch the sunrise from a sand dune, then had a lovely buffet breakfast, then off to Kata Tjuta! I wandered around there for a couple of hours, only did 3.5km today. It was so lovely. They are such bizaare and beautiful landmarks in the middle of flat desert. I've loved spending the last couple of days up close enjoying them.

Tonight is my going away party. Yay! Should be heaps of fun! Although I am very tired... might need to get some caffine into me so I can last the night!

I get home on Tuesday. Yay!

Camels & Sunsets

I went on a sunset camel ride the other day. So lovely! It went for about an hour and we trotted over some dunes watching Uluru and Kata Tjuta while the sun set. I'm exhausted today. I'm having a bit of a homesick day. My first one in 8 and a half weeks. By the way I've been here for 8 and a half weeks now! Photos ahoy!

This is the first souvenir I bought. He's called Sterlo. After the camel I rode!

A lovely sunset over Kata Tjuta


Tiff & I with Uluru in the background. It looks like I have my arms around her waist or something, but I'm just holding on to the bar. Weird photo.

Sunset over Kata Tjuta again

Me with my sexy helmut.

Just a shot of the camels in front of us.

So it was a fun night. I'm glad I did it. Quite different really. I've never ridden a camel before.

Friends & Life

So things here have been good lately. Apart from being totally exhausted from work that is. This is the hardest job I've ever had and the lowest I've ever been paid. Go figure. I'll be leaving in about 3 weeks though. I'll be home at the end of the month. Yay! I'm glad I came up here, but 9.5 weeks is long enough for me! It's getting hotter all the time and the work is just so hard! Did I mention that it's really hard work?!

Kate left yesterday and Olivia left the day before. It was great to see some faces from home. I enjoyed hanging out with them and letting them see where I live and work. Kate & I played a gig at the resident's club here on Wed night. Lots of fun! I've been getting so much positive feedback about it, so that's good! We even got paid for it! Whoo!

That's all from me for now. I'm hanging out for my day off on Tuesday!
Love you to all!
