In January, my girlfriend Belinda and I travelled by car from Perth to Brisbane. A total of some 5,000 kms in 5 days or so. With my pooch Crystal in tow. Chooky had to come along too. When Belinda first saw him she was determined he travel in the car with us. Of course he had to have his picture taken at random places
I was moving states and needed to bring my new car. Blin wasn’t working so she came along to keep me company and ensure my house was set up ‘just right’. It gave us an opportunity to have an adventure of sorts. We laughed about our Thelma and Louise trip. Minus the cliff dive at the end. We did meet Brad tho on the first day. A mutual truckie friend. But he was heading west and us east.
The Nullarbor is so named because it means treeless plain. It’s flat with long straight roads. Predominantly one-laned with a roadhouse/ motel just close enough to each other to ensure you don’t run out of petrol.
It’s taken me 9 months to birth this photo blog of our trip.
Most of the photos were taken through the car window. This selection is from Western Australia.
Day One was a 720 km from Perth to Norseman. It felt strange heading there as Norseman was the first place I lived in WA when I was 5
Day two was from Norseman to Ceduna … a total of 1,200kms along the Eyre Highway
