I think it is a fair assumption that most expats share a yearning for travel. So, in that spirit, here is a guest post by Anita Reid of Brisbane about traveling the Australian Outback with her husband and two girls. Sit back in your best traveling recliner and enjoy this tale from the Land of Oz. - Casey
I have wanted to visit the Australian Outback ever since I was a young girl. Images of the vast red land fascinated me. Riding across it and conquering it, was one of my strongest childhood dreams. Although I wasn't able achieve this adventure when I was younger, I got an opportunity to visit this beautiful part of the world in my late 20s.
After planning the journey with my hubby, we packed up with our two girls and set out to share this adventure as a family.

Our tour started with the journey to the very heart of the Outback called the Red Centre. I expected a colossal rock formation by the name of Uluru (or Ayer’s Rock) to be magnificent, but it exceeded all my expectations. I lack words to describe what I felt. We all took in the sight in awe, admiring nature's masterpiece. The kids immediately started asking if some wizards or aliens made it.
