2017′s adventure will be Australia. ”What, again?” I hear you cry. Yes, again. But this time I will be staying in one place. Much as I love riding around Australia’s vast land mass, I’d like to spend some time getting a sense of what it’s like to live there, rather than just having a few days in a place then moving on.
And what place have I chosen for this experience? Coober Pedy, in South Australia.
I visited it during my 2014 trip and was fascinated by the place. In the middle of the desert, it’s a barren landscape but surprisingly colourful. With a population of about 3,000 people it’s big enough to have a lot going on, but not so big you get lost in the crowd.
So on Tuesday 21 March 2017 I shall be flying out to Cairns, picking up Ruby (my motorcycle from my 2014 trip) and riding down to Coober Pedy. If you’d like to follow my adventures, “like” my Facebook page.
