Driving across the Nullarbor Plain in South Australia
I spent two weeks driving from Melbourne to Perth, during which I drove across the Nullarbor Plain. It's known as Australia's biggest and baddest road - it is home to the Great Australian Bight and the country's longest straight road. 'Nullarbor' literally means 'no trees' in Latin, and there's definitely not much life on the road. Even though it was very straight and very flat, crossing the Nullarbor was a unique experience. It was amazing to feel so in the middle of nowhere, disconnected, and appreciate the unique Australian outback culture. And of course, at the end it was an unbeatable feeling to think 'I've conquered the Nullarbor!'
