A few weeks ago I drove across Australia. An old friend had sent me a message saying, "Paris, I'm driving across Australia in a couple of weeks with my dingo. Want to come?" and I replied "yep" and that was literally the only conversation we had about the trip until he rocked up on my doorstep two weeks later and we headed off.
So I spent about a week making my way over, driving through endless plains of scrub, into the dry farmland of South Australia, through little ghost towns, into Stormboy land, then lush rolling green hills, then wet rainforests and finishing on the Great Ocean Road.
