with the compass in my hand

Thoushands of kilometers traveling for the desert, for purple, emerald and blue coral reefs... between sugar cane, mango's, coconuts, oceans, mines, sun and rain, day and night, bilabongs and windmills, red sand and green eucalyptus forest...sometimes I was smoking one cigarette in the full moon night and suddenly near to the camp fire I could saw some shadows...shy kangaroos looking curious at the human presence. I got so many photos in my camera, so many pictures in my mind...day by day I'm writing one different page one chapter of my book called life

Dear Seba: today I went to the mountains and it mas wonderful. All the nature remember you and I was connected with you by the mountains, the trees, the sky and the rivers. I remember when you went to the mountains before each New Year in your "Kawasaki" to clean your body and soul...there was so beautiful...

I miss you

A kiss in the stars.

Nicole said...

how are you Crazy Drile? thanks for showing us Australia

A couple of questions:

You need much knowledge to pass through the Australian desert? it is very dangerous? which is the lowest temperature in the desert?

thanks

Crazy Drile said...

Hey Nicole how are you?
Great cuestions..oh yeah, some answers:

The lowest extreme minima occur at high elevations, especially around Alice Springs, where the temperature has fallen as low as -7.5°C.

You dont´t need much knowledge, but is very important know how work one compass and use maps...this is a very very big country and is easy lost your way

Yep, is a little bit dangerous because Australia is the most dangerous place in the world...In the world you can find 20 really dangerous snakes, 17 of them are living here

Take a look in this link, can help you

is just passion 4me

Take care and keep in touch
