Do you want to know how we prepare for our biggest and loneliest adventure of our lives? Continue reading
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!

One of the most beautiful national parks in Western Australia is the Karijini National Park. However, Karijini National Park is quite far from all other tourist attractions.

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

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
What a man. Walking from Perth to Brisbane is quite a challenge.

There is so much to see on a Red Center Road Trip. All about the highlights in this post.
Australia’s nature in the Red Center is breathtaking. The wide open space, the starry sky and the nature is why we and many others visit the Red Center in Australia. Lately, we were often asked by other travelers what we would do if we had 2 weeks to explore Central Australia. So we thought it is time to put together a 2 week itinerary from Alice Springs. If we only had two weeks for a Red Center road trip starting from Alice Springs, that’s what we would do. Continue reading
