Finally, we made it! Finally, the glorious camping gear we found just days after arriving could be tested. After ten weeks down under we got out there for a taste of bush camping. Just half an hour east of town we criss-crossed Mundaring state forest all Sunday, continuously impressed by the ever-changing composition of the bush.
It´s spring now and we couldn´t wait any longer. Well, it was an early evening given the night temperature in the single digits and these little biting bastards that we still remember to well. Something around 8 degrees and a stiff, ice-cold breeze in the morning made you drink your coffee fast. Possible the first time for me serving hot soup for brekky 😉
Nevertheless, it was awesome to get out there and hear the bush by night, see the stars, cast a shadow in the strong moonlight and smell the forest and the ground. Just getting out of the car the scent of the soil, gumtrees, bushes and who knows what was positively overwhelming.
