ENGLISH:
After I left Cairns, I made it back 400km to Townsville within like 3hours. I ended up at the same gas station as before. From there I got another ride, this time in the direction of Australia`s inland. My goal was the Ayers Rock. It was thousands of miles ahead, and I had no idea how many days it would take me to get there. The further away it was from the sea side, the dryer the area was getting. A truck driver dropped me off in a small town of Cloncurry, which seemed to be in the middle of nowhere. I just found a small square by a roadhouse to put my sleeping mat and snuggled in my sleeping bag. The night was way too hot though and I couldn`t stay in my sleeping bag. The mozzies were kicking off, flying all over me and eating me alive. I woke up before sunrise and decided to get ready to move on. However, I stayed in that road for good a few hours and nobody would stop. Eventually a car with a big trunk stopped and the guy took me to the other side of the town - which wasn`t big, but it was very spread. Within an hour or so I got a ride that took me all the way up, 800km to Tennant Creek.

POLSKI:
400km z Cairns do Townsville udalo mi sie pokonac w jakies 3h. Znowu wyladowalam na tej samej stacji benzynowej co poprzednio. Stamtad zlapalam "okazje" wglab Australii. Moim celem byla slynna skala Ayers Rock. Mialam przed soba tysiace kilometrow jazdy, i nie mialam pojecia ile czasu zajmie mi dotarcie tamze. Zauwazylam, ze im dalej od wybrzeza, tym bardziej robilo sie sucho, zeby nie powiedziec: pustynnie. Kierowca ciezarowki wysadzil mnie w Cloncurry, czyli miasteczku z cyklu nie-mam-pojecia-co-to-za-zadupie. Znalazlam mily skrawek trawnika obok stacji benzynowej, rozlozylam tam moja karimate i wsunelam sie do srodka spiwora. Noc byla jednak zbyt goraca i nie bylam w stanie spac w spiworze. Komary nie dawaly mi zyc, lataly mi nad uchem i jadly mnie zywcem. 
Obudzilam sie przed wschodem slonca i zdecydowalam, ze czas ruszyc dalej. Niestety, stalamprzy drodze machajac przez dobych kilka godzin i nikt sie nie zatrzymywal. W koncu gosciu w  samochodzie z duza przyczepa zatrzymal sie i wywiozl mnie na druga strone miasteczka - ktore nie bylo duze, ale bardzo rozlegle. W ciagu nastepnej godziny zatrzymalam kierowce, z ktorym pojechalam 800km, az do Tennant Creek.
