From Perth to Darwin
Having left Perth, and all it’s wonderful beaches and pretty surroundings, I find myself once again heading northward, this time to Darwin. I am looking forward to the hot weather again.
Perth was a great place for me, but it feels like I have left while I was just getting use to the place. I was in the hostel just long enough to feel familiar with it all, but I have a plan to stick to now. I paid 40 dollars for the short ride to the airport, and hopped on the aeroplane, destination Darwin.
Upon arrival, it was instantly hotter, and very humid. I always love that feeling when you step out of the plane – or airport building – and into a wall of humidity. It always makes me feel I am on holiday.
A walk around town and to the lagoon was first on the list, and the night life was certainly in full swing. All about me were bars and clubs, all thumping out their tunes to the delight of the masses. I found myself by the green down by the water where the atmosphere was far less rowdy, peaceful in fact. Here there are many places for families and friends to eat well. I like it here.
Tomorrow I am off on a tour of Lichfield, where I am promised crocodiles, pythons and waterfalls, but not all at the same time, I hope. In a few days I will be on board the Ghan train, headed for Alice Springs, where I shall finally see Ayers Rock. There is so much to look froward to in the next couple of weeks, so much to cram in before my flight home, and it already seems to be racing by at an incredible speed. I am enjoying it immensely though.
