Where I stayed
Next stop after many hours of driving...I fear that may be the status quo for the trip as it is 3000km in 10 days
On the way through we passed Geraldton which was an industrial town where pretty much nothing happens although it was the biggest city outside of Perth on the west coast. It was also a nice change to have signal which was the last time for the rest of the day. By mid afternoon everyone was chatting away and my fears of having a tour were abatted. It was an entirely female group which I think makes things easier although when we stopped at the bottle shop and Jodie and I were the only ones purchasing I did begin wonder. There were....Jodie (Irish), Mirium (German), Eva (German), Roos (Dutch), Elise (Dutch) , Han (Korean grandmother...wow I want to be that adventurous when I am that age), Eva (Dutch), Helene (French) and Louise (Swedish but talks like a South African).
Eventually we arrive in Horrocks and where we are spending the night. It is freezing and raining...I know I said in Asia I was a little sick of the heat but now I am sick of the cold. And also severly worried about how cold NZ will be and whether I have enough warm stuff for it and if not how I am going to fit it into my backpack! It was a communal effort for dinner and we were all famished. There was great conversation around the dinner table and I was really chilled and happy. No stress for at least a week with great company...excellent. You also realise how vast the distances this trip will involve...in our first day we did the equivilant of the length of the UK!
