There was a thing I wanted to do in Australia: cross the mainland of Australia, right through its center. With my great friend Stijn, we did it greatly, driving this old rusty wreck of 1982, a beautiful Toyota Hiace bought earlier in Tasmania. We finally hit the road after six months of farm work and a terrible accident which forced Nana to return to Japan. During the crossing, we’ve met many people from different worlds. We saw the famous Uluru, eagles, dead kangaroos, road trains and we tasted excellent wine.

Through the mainland
