The little known Mt James Track in the Stirling Ranges. While everyone goes to climb the peaks, the most famous of which is Bluff Knoll, I went to discover some lesser walked tracks and this sure delivered. I had it all to myself with no evidence on anyone having walked it in the recent past and I got to feel like an early explorer. Granted I was a spoilt one having such a good track to walk but you get what I mean.
The Experience vs. The Amenities. If you focus on the travel experience vs the amenities you can cut your travel costs dramatically. #traveltip #bbctravel #budget #travelbudget #travelfund #saving #solotravel #adventure #adventuretravel #lonelyplanet #cometravelwithme #travelbuddy #ig_travel #rravelwithapurpose #carryonwandering #travelexperience
I've done 4/5 which ain't bad. How many have you done? To help you out I've listed them here - Atlantic Ocean. Arctic Ocean. Indian Ocean. Pacific Ocean. Southern Ocean.
Is it just me or is there something haunting about owls? Their eyes seem to look straight through you and the expression on this guys face makes me think he is daring me to move towards him. I didn't, but he does seem upset that I woke him up which is fair enough for a nocturnal bird. I was walking in the Stirling Ranges when I heard a cry and looked up to see what sort of bird it was. Next thing I knew 4 of these guys flew out of the ground next to me and scattered into the trees. I'd like to think that it was a Mama, Papa and 2 baby birds just because that creates order in my brain but in reality I have no idea. Still pretty cool to see owls close up though no matter the time of day.
Aren't you afraid? I get this question in one form or another every time I go hiking alone. I don't understand the irrational fear people seem to have about sleeping in a tent alone in the bush any more than they seem to understand my lack of it. I get that it's not for everyone and that different countries have different dangers but when the most dangerous things in the Australian bush are lack of water, snakes and drop bears why would I be afraid of somebody attacking me in my tent? If they are out in the middle of nowhere with me then chances are they will be just as knackered as I am having gone to the effort of getting there. I love sleeping alone in the bush where the only sounds are the wind rushing through the trees, the chirping of the cicadas and occasionally the noise of my unsettled mind. Where do you have your best sleeps?
