Postcard from Eyre Highway

January 26, 2012 in Australia,Places,Postcards

It’s easy to think the drive across the Nullarbor would be boring. It means “treeless plain” and the landscape can be a bit repetitive: it’s hundreds of kilometers between towns, service stations, even toilets.

But on a clear day, the view from the road is incredible. Impossibly blue skies, the fluffiest of clouds, open land as far as the eye can see: it truly is Australia’s last frontier. I spent my days in the passenger seat, staring out the windows and absolutely loving every minute of it.
