Uluru

This post is all about Uluru, now i recently went to Uluru so I am very excited to share my experiences with you.

Uluru

Uluru

This is a breathtaking view of Uluru, do you know why the sky changes colour? Well read on. 

The colour changes result from the effects of the earth’s atmosphere on the sun’s incoming rays. The ash, dust particles and water vapour present in the earth’s atmosphere act as a filter which can remove the bluer light from the incoming rays of the sun, allowing the redder light through at different times of day. Reflections from the rock and clouds in the sky enhance the vivid colours.

How tall is Uluru:

  • 348 metres high at its peak

Are there walks around Uluru? Yes

Walk around Uluru

Walk around Uluru

There is a full walk around Uluru which is ten Kilometres and a smaller Mala walk which is 2km. 

The walk up Uluru is a treacherous two hours, you are lucky if it open when you visit because the park is very strict as to when you can climb up the rock. But anyway let us continue First you climb up a near vertical side of Uluru, with a chain, it’s still scary though.  

Then you reach a small shelter/rock area and you think you’ve done it. Yay, but no, you realise that to get to the very top you must continue but with no chain.

Travel Insurance

Travel insurance is a very important when travelling, I find that it gives me peace of mind.

Lets compare two different scenarios 

  1. Travel Insurance
  2. No Travel Insurance

Scenario 1 travel insurance 

We are going to Bali for five days, some areas of bali are a hotbed for disease. A large majority of Australians pick up chlamydia, so for this scenario we pick up chlamydia. Thank God we had insurance because our insurance pays for all the medical, however just as we thought that our luck could not get any worse we reverse into a tree. Luckily our insurance pays for that expense as well. We got insurance from travel insurance direct for $42.00

Scenario 2, no travel insurance 

We are going to Bali for five days with no travel insurance, dammit we have chlamydia and no insurance. Money down the toilet 😦 

OMFG, we reverse into a tree 

I definitely recommend getting travel insurance on your travels. Has this ever happened to you comment below

India travel

I BET YOU HAVE NEVER BEEN ANYWHERE LIKE INDIA. Personally I think I am correct, all the hustle and bustle of India travel.

AH INDIA 1.2 billion people, the second most populous country in the world.

When you hear the word India what do you see in your mind? Personally I see New Delhi, the Taj Mahal, Mumbai and Goa

Today is the start of a series where we talk about all the topics listed above. 

But today we are talking about the Taj Mahal

TAJ MAHAL HISTORY, INDIA TRAVEl. Craving some australian history go here https://www.facebook.com/MARKIVIST

India Travel, you cant go to India without seeing the Taj Mahal, its architectural beauty, one of the seven wonders of the world.

The Taj Mahal was built in over 22 years, the Taj Mahal was dedicated to Shah Jahans wife  Mumtaz Mahal. Shah Jahan was a muslim army commander ah nd lost his wife after she gave birth to another child. The construction of the Taj Mahal began in 1631. The final request of his wife was for him not to marry again and prove their endless love by building a dreamlike beautiful mausoleum.

Rooms in the Taj Mahal, India Travel.

Ah the mystery continues again, this great mausoleum has a architectural style of Hindu and Muslim styles blended into one palace.

The Taj Mahal Consists of 

  • A forecourt
  • A great gate
  • A huge garden
  • A mausoleum
  • Tomb Chamber
