We Made It & We Will Do It Again

We Made It & We Will Do It Again

(Bellenden Ker)

Hi Katrin,

we are back at Bellenden Ker now with lots of good memories of our trip to Cape York.

We're so glad we went. It took us a month to go up & back as we were in no hurry at all.

Next time we'll take longer as we'll be more prepared. We'll take more food, drinking water & less clothes.

We stayed at Alau Beach campground at Umagico for a week & it was the best of all. We drove around everyday & saw all the sights.

The tip of Oz was an incredible feeling, it really grabbed us.

We'll visit the Cape again with a little difference.

Cheers to you. Wendy
