Rethink my concepts and beliefs.

I would like to share with you some of my thoughts I was having in Australia.

What I understood from being closer to the nature and being far from my everyday life. 

Since I understood that many things are wrong in our everyday life I was trying to find my ways to change it in a better way. That was important moments for me and I have learned manny things. But in some ways I become too much theoretical and too much concentrated change others rather then myself. Slowly I forgot were I stand in this planet and I started to see things only in notional level. Being too much conceptual make me too rational and slowly I lost essentiality.
 Am I in peace with my nature?
Here in Australia I started to observe animals, plants, birds, trees, water, etc... I understood that:  if I am one of the species  in this planet I would not be so different from other species with general needs. In order to find out what is my nature I need to learn more from the nature. 
I always had this question: In which point things get wrong in human history? And why are we suffering?
Well this is the big questions and there will not be only one answer, but now I have one more path to find some answers and I think it is good not to forget it.
In Australia I opened my hard to nature and thus I strongly feel closer to it. I see how nature keeps it’s balance. Animals have there food, they eat as much as they need. Plants have water to exist and life circle keeps balance in the nature. ...  There is nothing happening in the nature that will destroy its' balance. 
I think big change in human history started at the point were we decided to master on nature and slowly forget how to keep our natural balance. We started to warship human and we’ve created ideas of gods, “human” beings (the holy Man) that is creators of All and furthermore -  creator of nature for Us, Humans. So this concept gave us all power on nature. We can change it, we can master it and enjoy power on it. This concept gave us power to take more then we need from the nature and wasting the resources. This notion making us greedy and we think only about our selfs. 
Now I know if we will start to understand more nature, remember the knowledge we had before, develop more notion of nature, not technology that makes us lazy and dumb, we could become better for everyone in this planet. 
Well today is 10 of March 2012 and I count from this time. I can not go back in past and I do  not want imagine future. So from today on I need to open my hard in order to gain much more then rational beliefs.
Australia, 2012

Mapping our Journey in Australia


This is our road through Australia. Next time we will do northern territories and all the rest of the desert. ;)

Sydney and back to Melbourn

And here is our final road towards Melbourne.

Blue mountain national park

I have to admit that I really liked this city :)
Fulll of energy, good people and perfect weathers.

I did not see much interesting art works in Australia. I like very much aborigines art works. 
In this museum I saw some aborigines contemporary works, I like the stile and soul of it. 

Well this work is too easy but any way I liked it. That's me :)

I will never forget those creatures :*

They are Just so peaceful and calm.

And they really like walnuts :D

And they love scratching :D:D:D:D

Simpson Desert

 Kulgara Pub on the highway. Here we turn towards Mt Dare where we have to take last possible fuel

We already started to feel desert. 
Day time it's hot and by night it's getting colder. In the early morning it's freezing :)

We slept inside the car because it was too cold night, but then it get better.

On the way towards Mt Dare we stopped to see the real center of crazy Australia.

This point is the geological center of Australia. 

Eugen lost the it :D:D:D:D

This is the last place to have fuel and after this point you are nowhere during 500 km

I mentioned before that in Australia in outback you can find amazing places and this one was one of them. Hot spring water pool is the starting point of Simpson desert. 

Water was 34° hot :)

So we took French Line to cross desert. We had 1100 sand dunes to cross.
Well I will say now that it was really crazy to decide this journey. Normally you have to be with some other car in case of problem, because you will not mite have help for a week. And you have to have reliable car for the desert and we have the car that is not really so good. But after crossing the desert I am proud of us :) And this journey in to the desert became best for me. 

Dingo, Australian wild dog.

Well I can not explain with wards our adventure in this desert. We are missing it so much.
you are under the sun, on the ground with nature. We felt really part of this and it will stay in our hards forever.

some Camels :)

This is one of the sand dune. It was not really hard to pass, it was not so soft but after hundreds of them you are getting tired.

This tree is mystery of the desert. It is here in the middle of desert but it is unusual to have this kind of tree there. First it need so much water it's strange it survive and second there are no other kind of tree in the desert. 

There are lots of plants, flowers and small trees in the desert. It's crazy how they are surviving in this hard temperature. 

Finally I saw red center, hard of Australia.

And those sand dunes are very close to each other so you have them each 3 min :) It means you go up and down all the time. Average height of sand dunes was from 5 to 20 m.

Camping where there is no sound . Eugene liked silence of the desert.  You just do not hear much, just pure silence. Well we had best sleep we could get ever :D:D:D

The sky is huge and you breath differently. 

As Eugene calls it: Simpsonis udabnos puri :)

Our destination was Birdsveal.

We had people on radio that get bogged in the sand. 

Solt lake crossings. We had luck again. These lakes were dry so it was easy to cross.

On the road we pass the point where 3 borders meet.

And the end point of the desert was Big Red. It is biggest and last sand dune.

On top of Big Red.

Our destination town Birdsville is most remote town in Australia but still you can have fresh beer and best kangaroo pie ;)  We are safe and we still have our car :) That is good point.
We did not stayed in Birdsville because we do not have much time before we will leave Australia and we still have to make 3000km till Melbourne via Sydney.

So back to the road

Next destination Sydney. I have to get my visa for Switzerland ;)
