Australia trip 2018, Part 5
Hello, I came with my fifth trip story in Australia. I have already travelled through Alice Spring to Tennant Creek. It was a bit boring to see the same scenery for a few hundred kilometres, but it was a great time to meet many local people and travellers. I had so much fun with them. Please enjoy reading it, Thanks.
I will start with a picture of the bright and beautiful sky. The pattern of cloud was lovely to see
Brown thing standing next to me is an ant house, a termite house. National park ranger side, termite is closer to cockroach, not the ant. When I saw it, I thought ‘I have to shoot this’, but later I saw a termite house that was about twice bigger than my height
When I travel on a bicycle, I often try to camp at the free camp place because I want to use water in the water tank shown in the picture. I use this water to wash my face and hair, and if I am lucky, I can also wash my legs.
This couple in the picture showed interest in my bicycle trip. She asked me ‘Are you hungry? Would you like some food?’ She made me a bowl of pasta. Of course, I cooked myself another bowl of pasta after this one. One bowl of pasta was not big enough.
They sold everything and travelling in Australia. When I was resting on the side of the road, sometimes people stop and want to hear my trip story. This couple also stopped their car and gave me some water and even shared some lunch.
Can you find a difference in the picture above? The first and second photos are the rear wheel tire, and the last picture is the front wheel tire. There was a lot of heavy load on the rear wheel, and my weight was added to rear wheel too. So, the tire was worn out. However, since the distance to the bicycle shop is still about 700km, I could not just ride on it. So, I changed the front and rear tire on this day.
I took a picture after changing my tire
I just screamed out after sawing the dead snake on the road. My heart was still pumping fast while taking a picture.
I was resting in the shade for a while at the gas station and just saw a wild buffalo walking near the gas station. This must happen only in the outback
I spent a night at a famous place ‘Daly water pub’ on this day. I had an enjoyable evening. It was a delightful evening as people came out and danced and sang together. There were a country singer and circus. Also, I had a salad buffet (I ate four dishes of salads).

The last picture was taken from a place called Mataranka. Its name is ‘Hot spring’, named by its warm water. It was big and deep, and it was so clean. I even felt sorry to swim in the pool because the water was crystal clear. Crocodile lives in the lower part of the river.
I will finish my story here today. I have difficulties to take pictures by myself. I do not know who will be my riding partner in the future. I really would like to have travel companions and help me to make a travel documentary video and taking pictures for my blog.
See you next time.
