**I am officially lame. I never finished my Australia posts. I guess I got a bit overwhelmed. The below two paragraphs, and first photo caption, were written back in September, and here it is, another four months later. Where does the time go?? I will finish blogging this trip before the year mark hits! I should probably just give it up, but I can't help myself....
Are you getting sick of hearing about Australia yet? Probably. It's been four months since I went, and I haven't finished the travelogue yet. Who am I? I guess life's been a bit busier since summer hit, and as you're aware the internet sucked at my apartment, but, woohoo! I moved yesterday and hurray! Internet that works all the time! Three cheers for internet!
Anyway, at this point I'm sure I'm just blogging for myself (and maybe Karen) but that's just fine with me.
We thought a lot about if we should make the effort to go so far out of our way (not to mention all the extra $$) just to see a big rock in the middle of nowhere. I mean, would it really be worth it? In the end we decided we should go for it. I mean, who's to say I'll ever be in Australia again? For the record, it was, totally worth it. We were only in the Outback for 24 hours, which was more than enough time. I mean, there really is NOTHING there. And the flies alone will drive you insane.
Just before boarding the flight in.....gosh, where were we in this photo, Karen? I can't even remember. Horrible. Oh, yes! We had a layover in Carnes. Yes, now we're boarding for Ayer's Rock. Don't judge me, we took 11 flights.
Aaaaand there it is again, but this isn't the fact I'm referring to (you know, the puckered lip one.) On our shuttle bus to our hostel.
Note to self: invest in a nice camera before my next big trip. The colors of the Outback were incredible. These pics don't do justice.
I don't mean to brag, but I got this in the first shot, and then spent at least five minutes laughing at Karen's millions of attempts, and extreme frustration that ensued. Sorry Karen, I couldn't help ti.
