Each day brings with it a challenge to entertain ourselves, what we are going to eat and Nic developing the skill to map read...two out of three isn't bad? To conserve petrol and stay on budget we travel at an agonisingly slow 80km per hour and we are covering about 450km per day. This means that we spend about 7 hours a day thinking up games to pass the time. We have done the alphabet game.......this lasted a short while and then we ran out of ideas, so back to listening to music...this resulted in a joint effort of backing vocals to the big hit 'I need a hero' by Bonnie Tyler followed by 'Jumbaliye' the trendy ditty by Hank Williams! We are sooooo down with the kids!
On the third day we arrive in Adelaide, with a slight wildness in our eyes, and look at the map to revel in our accomplishment of distance traveled....only to find that we had done a minute amount of the distance we have yet to cover..... this country is truly HUGE!
