My trip to Broken Hill was over a month ago and I am finally sharing some photos. Broken Hill is a remote town in outback Australia, its closest major city is Adelaide which is over 500kms away. It is one of Australia's oldest mining towns and is rich with culture.

The whole reason for going there was to visit my sister who was on a pharmacy placement there. It is the kind of place I thought that I might not go to otherwise so I jumped at the chance when mum suggested a road trip. 

As the trip got closer the 15 hour drive did not seem like not such a good idea. But I am so glad that we went, I had such a fun time. We stayed in a little cottage and went on amazing adventures - we went down a 120 year old mine, road camels, did a secret pub challenge, visited lakes that hold three time more water than Sydney harbour, watched amazing sunsets, went to the pub where part of 'Priscilla Queen of the Desert' was filmed, visited art galleries (like Pro Hart) and of course ate yummy food.

I always have fun anytime I am with three of my favorite ladies but I truelly loved Broken Hill. It is an amazing, unique part of Australia that I recommend you visit if you get a chance. If you head out there, hit me up for an itinerary.

  12. Woah! I'm really enjoying the template/theme of this site. It's simple, yet effective.
    A lot of times it's tough to get that "perfect balance" between superb usability and visual appeal. I must say you have done a fantastic job with this. Additionally, the blog loads extremely quick for me on Chrome. Superb Blog!

  15. Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text
    in your content seem to be running off the screen in Chrome.
    I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I'd post to let you know.
    The layout look great though! Hope you get the issue resolved soon.

    Cheers
