Where Mountains are Blue
Again, I'm blogging from a backpacker's hostel. But this time it's a different one, cos this morning we arrived at the Blue Mountains and we are staying the night. Tomorrow we are going to Jenolan caves to do a cave tour before heading back to the city in the evening.
It is COLD up here in the mountains, and showering was such a torment. The part I hate most was trying to get the right combination of hot and cold water flowing out of the shower while standing there shivering in my birthday suit.
Anyway, with 6 days' worth of clothes and ample supplies of muesli bars and Pocky (Rudy made me bring it) all crammed into a medium haversack, I am truly feeling like a backpacker. And it rocks, yo! Other than some minor travelling hiccups, it's been all good.
Maybe this is how a snail feels. A portable home strapped onto its back, ready, get set, go. But unlike me, it doesn't have to go knocking on backpackers hostels and pay 20 bucks a night to get a bed. Good for it.
At an old coal mine up in the Blue Mountains near Katoomba Falls, and at the first section of the Giant Stairway at the Three Sisters.
Just two photos from today, because I'm lazy. And also because the super strong wind made my hair look crappy in most of the pictures. :p
