Land of the Getaway

"We're living in the land of the getaway
No telling where the road will end
We're living in the land of the getaway
Just around the bend is a brand new day
Land of the Getaway"
Colin Buchanan.

This is our life for the next six weeks.  We are on a travelling holiday through northern Australia.  So far we have been on the road for five days and come across the Plenty Highway to Alice Springs.  We have seen lots of wide open spaces and awesome nothingness.  A two night stop over in Alice and now we are heading for the desert!

This is some of vast open lands we are seeing along the way.
