Monday morning and I sat into my rental Subaru Impreza WRX STi...ups, dreaming... Well, my rental car anyway. The plan was to drive about 1000 kms north of Australia in the next couple of days and then return to Perth. The towns in WA are rather small with none of them having more than 30.000 people (Perth excluded). Only in the outback you get to know what being reeeeaaaaallllyyy easy going means. One of the reasons why I enjoy outback so much.
