So here it is, brand new year 2016! I’m traveling already for 12 months and slowly getting to the end! How would I summarise the last year? In points, as I don’t have Internet in here.
When you’re traveling on a very low budget like me, every penny counts. And you n Australia there are many beautiful places to see and mostly they’re for free! You don’t believe me? Look at this!
As everything needs to move on so does my blog as well so here I’d like to present you the second last post about Australia. Although I spent there almost three months and Australia was one of the luckiest counties I’ve been to its slowly time to say good bye and start posting about New Zealand:)
Melbourne is a place where I´ve spent the most time in Australia – a month! First it was two weeks, then I moved to Sydney and then… another two weeks! Why? Because I liked it. I liked the place, the people and I still like it. At the end of the day it´s the best city to live in the whole world according to most rankings. And no wonder!
Australia is a country where many nations migrated in the past. One of them were Germans! Ja! Well back (19 century) their region was part of Prussia, today it´s Poland. The city was named after the captain of the ship Zebra – Dirk Meinhertz Hahn and until today it is the oldest surviving (still existing) German settlement in Australia. And it´s pretty schön!
Today you´ll read about why Australia is one of the luckiest country I´ve been to. Because it is so huge, getting from one place to another may be a challenge when you´re travelling on budget. After my Indonesian hitchhiking for over 900km I´d say you could try it, but this time it was a trip for over 5000 km. My plan was to get from Darwin to Adelaide. Considering additional trip to Uluru/Ayers Rock it´s 500km more…
Everybody knows that Australia is home of the most dangerous animals in the world. And it is true. You can laugh about it, you can joke about it but when you meet one of them, you´re fucked. Now don´t take this post too serious, if you look around and take care you should be fine. Hopefully.
