A statement that perhaps seems a little dramatic when in reference to a holiday, but on my week away trekking the Larapinta Trail the idea wafted through my mind on more than one occasion.
For a while I had been thinking that I had become a little too used to the comfortable city life and it was about time I headed back to the red dirt. So, when my sister-in-law Elizabeth suggested a walking holiday in the Northern Territory – it seemed like the perfect solution. A cursory glance at the website and daily strolling distances sealed it – easy. I paid my deposit – mini break confirmed.
