Billiluna Start of our Canning Stock Route adventure

Eight years ago Marcel told me about his dream of driving the Canning Stock Route for the first time. My first thought was: “And what should be so cool about driving the loneliest road on planet earth? Wouldn’t a beach or diving holiday be nicer?” Today I know the Canning Stock Route is something very special. And fortunately I said “Yes” to the great Canning Stock Route adventure.

10 years ago we left Switzerland to discover the world

It's already 10 years of traveling

We almost missed our 10th anniversary of traveling the world. One evening, under the wonderful starry sky here in Australia, I suddenly realized that we have left Switzerland 10 years ago. In 2007 we quit our jobs, sold our house, got rid of most of our stuff and left Switzerland to discover the world. That was in February 2007, and now is already April 2017. That’s more than 10 years!

Climbing a giant tree near Pemberton is not for the faint-hearted

Climbing the giant trees in Pemberton

Standing in front of a giant tree in the forests around Pemberton is very impressive and you will suddenly feel very small. Eight years ago, we have been around Pemberton in the south-west of Australia the first time. It was an unforgettable experience to climb one of the giant trees. The view from the platform, which is 75 meters above the ground and above the tree top, is breathtaking. The ascent over the iron bars is not for the faint-hearted or people with fear of heights. Last time, I did climb the giant tree and made it to the platform. But will I be able to do the ascent this time? Should I take the risk again? Continue reading

Road Trip from Perth to Alice Springs – The longest shortcut in Australia

On the Road Trip from Perth to Alice Springs

The road trip from Perth to Alice Springs is 3’607 km long if you want to drive on well-developed, sealed roads. Since we can also handle difficult 4WD tracks with our Troopy, well-developed roads are not a must for us. On the contrary. We love to drive 4WD tracks and take the roads less traveled to discover the lesser known attractions and places in the outback of Australia. Continue reading
