"Down Under" Top 5 Page for this destination Australia by darthmilmo

Australia Travel Guide: 49,206 reviews and 130,393 photos

I had a wonderful time traveling through Australia for five months in 2003 (from July to December). I met tons of interesting folks from all walks of life. Together with them or alone, I had many adventures and misadventures that I will never forget. Although it may not be as exotic as Africa, Asia, or Latin America, Australia was definitely worth it. I miss her already and deep in my heart I know I’ll go back someday. After all, I still need to explore the jewels in Western Australia.

There is no better motivation for making this webpage then Australia itself. I hope the many personal anecdotes and pictures I have posted on this webpage inspire you to go on your own adventure. If you’ve been there or live there, then I hope it reminds you of a similar adventure you have experienced in the past.

Please respect my photos and me by not using my pictures without previous permission. Cheers. © Copyrighted by Darth Milmo :)

    F - Finally getting around to reading your blog. I notice that you omitted the fact that you abandoned me halfway up cradle mountain and I had to climb with another 2 ladies, one of which had been similarly abandoned by her travel companion.
