"Alice Springs?.......a nice place to visit, but you wouldn't want to live there"

20th & 21st May 2013

Here we are at last, about to start one of the most iconic Australian journeys....through Central Australia to Alice Springs.

The last two days have seen us arrive at Port Augusta, travelling over countryside familiar to us after our trip to the Flinders Ranges in 2011. Last night we pulled up at a Caravan Park in Bolivar, an area on the north western side of Adelaide. I got talking to a fellow camper there about where we were heading. When I told him our ultimate destination is Alice Springs his immediate response was "Nice place to visit....but you wouldn't wanna live there!"  (He and his wife had lived there) hence the above title of this blog thread.

So, here we are on the eve of ticking off one of the major items on my bucket list, that is, to experience Uluru and Kata Tjuta in person. Hopefully there'll be some nice photos to add in over the next 4 weeks.

Stay tuned.
