お題は初めてのオーストラリアのロードトリップで

おすすめしたい場所ベスト3についてです。

 

Introduction

In July last year, I took a road trip from Noosa Heads to Darwin in my X-trail Nissan by myself.

There were a lot of areas that I stayed at during the road trip.  I will try to describe some areas that had an especially strong impression on me. 

 

My Best 3 areas

Noosa Heads

I wanted to stay in Noosa Heads before starting my road trip, because my friend who I met when I worked on a strawberry farm recommended it to me. 

There were a lot of surfers and a lot of fashionable cafes. Also, there were a lot of beautiful beaches.  This place made me feel excited before my road trip.  I’m glad I could visit Noosa Heads. 

 

Yeppoon

I stayed here for around 3 weeks because I had to fix my car. When I went to Capricorn Caves, my car started making strange sounds, so I took my car to a car repair shop. The mechanic said he needed two weeks to fix my car.  I was stuck there for 2 weeks. 

Anyway, there were really beautiful beaches, restaurants, and people.  The backpacker hostel that I stayed at was beautiful, but a little bit expensive.  I fortunately negotiated a little bit of a discount because I stayed there a long time. 

Also I went to Great Keppel island with a beautiful old couple who I met at the backpacker hostel.  It was a beautiful and peaceful place.  I went to Toowoomba to meet them after this road trip. 

 

Yungaburra

This is a small town where you can see platypus. There was a beautiful Italian restaurant, cafes, and a backpacker.  The people were really kind and friendly.  When I went to the Italian restaurant, the staff and owner were all kind. I couldn’t understand the menu well even though I tried to read it because I was so tired to drive. So I just told them what I wanted to eat and they made a beautiful pasta for me.

Last

I also visited many other areas. However, something happened on the way to Darwin.

The day before, I had asked the staff for a room at Barkly Homestead, but there was no vacancy. They only had a campsite.  So I had no choice to sleep in my car at the campsite. 

Then, while I was driving to Darwin, I misjudged the steering and swung too far to the right and crashed my car into a wall. It was a single vehicle accident.  The car was scrapped in this accident.  Fortunately, no one was injured and only my car was a write off.

When I had the accident, many people who noticed helped me. I managed to have my car towed to Pine Creek. 

As a result, I didn’t have a car anymore, so the road trip ended at Pine Creek.

Many people had helped me during this road trip and I realized the kindness of people.

Pine Creek was an unforgettable city with lots of memories. Also, if I have the opportunity to make another road trip in Australia, I would like to start my journey from Pine Creek.

 

Road Tripは悲惨な結果に・・・。

皆さんこんにちは。

 

Road Tripは結構前に終わっちゃったのですが、

結果を書いてなかったので書こうと思います。

 

実はオーストラリア一周は出来ませんでした。

と、いうか半分も出来てない気分です。

 

悲しい結末です。

 

結論から言うと

 

 

事故っちゃいました。。。。

 

 

まぁ、そんなことだろうと思ってた方々はたくさんいるかもしれませんが・・・。

 

 

車が廃車になっちゃって

車を新しく買うには

タイミングや精神的にもちょっとボロボロになりすぎてしまったので

旅の継続は諦めることにしました。

 

 

ほんと残念です。

 

私はあまり何かを達成したりやり遂げたことが無かったので

この旅をやり遂げたかったのですが・・・。

 

まぁ、今は心の保養をし、結構ましになりました。

(でも車を運転するのが怖くなりました。)

 

 

事故の詳細は伏せますが、

誰もケガもなく私の車が廃車になっただけの単独事故で

まだよかったのだと思うことにしました。

 

まぁ、事故ったおかげで出会えた人もたくさんいますし、

オーストラリアで事故るという貴重な経験も出来たので

プラス思考で行きましょう!

 

そんな感じで

まぁ色々ありましたが、Darwinで私の今回の旅は終わっちゃいました。

 

次はRoad Tripは誰かと一緒にやりたいなぁ~

1人だとそれはそれで楽しいけど寂しすぎる。。。

 

ってことで( ´Д`)ノ~バイバイ
