Australia - Holidays in the Other End of the World


Australia, the continent at the other end of the world, is a travel destination that is not common. When at that time in May 2006 I booked my trip on my own I already knew some things about the country, the poeple, the sightseeings and and and. But before the journey I never thought tht it will be so overwhelming. Specially the impressive eggshell-arquitecture of the Sydney Opera House, the colourful Uluru that specially in the evening dawn is brithly lightened are pure madness that still today cause wanderlust in me by thinking of my 2,5 months journey. The colourful, versatile, but also very dangerous underwater world of the famous Great Barrier Reef is a must for all divers and is considered to be the most beautiful diving area in the world.

What is also fascinating is the friendliness of the Australians; it is true that it is said about them they are very superficial people, but here, everybody talks to everyone, no mtter if black or white, young or old, pretty or ugly. They are also very helpful.
