在世界的中心呼喊愛情 From the center of the world “Uluru”

一直以來,我都很想去《在世界的中心呼喊愛情》中出現的這塊大石頭”Uluru”朝聖。事實上,這裡也真的是澳洲原住民的聖地。

2015年,我獨自飛到歐洲將近三周,展開從中北部達爾文開始的行程,順著行程到澳洲大陸的中心、這塊大石頭的時候,以我三十多歲的年紀,跟一群二十幾歲的小朋友一塊野宿、露營、健行,其實體力有點負荷不了。

那幾天的行程,全部都圍繞著這塊大石頭:看日落、看日出、露營、繞著這塊大岩石健行、騎駱駝看遠方Uluru的日出……就這樣在此玩樂至少五天,竟也不覺得無聊。這塊大石頭的魅力的確值得讓人大老遠飛到澳洲的中部[愛麗絲泉]來好好探詢….

For a long time, I’d longed for going to a place shown in Japanese movie “Socrates in Love (世界の中心で、愛をさけぶ).”  This huge stone “Uluru” symbolizes a lot and romantically in that movie that makes me go on a pilgrimage to Uluru where is a sacred place for Australian aboriginals.

In 2015, for almost 3 weeks I went alone on a trip to Australia starting from a “workers’ city” Darwin where the expense is super high and the weather is extremely hot and humid but the city is quite cute with lots of legends relating to crocodiles.  Then the next stop is the center of Australia “Alice Springs”.   If we want to reach this so-called “the center of the world(Australia),” the easiest way is to fly directly to “Alice Springs”.   I went there with some young travelers (adventurers) in their twenties; so the trips with them is really a challenge.  We went outdoor camping with only a sleeping bag under the sky; yap without any roof just under the stars and the moon; and hiking, mountain-climbing…etc.  To be honest, those are pretty hard for me to go with them in my thirties age.

The various trips starting from Alice Springs are mostly connecting to Uluru –  waiting for the sunset of Uluru, getting up early for the sunrise of Uluru (cold to death), camping, hiking along the tracks of Uluru, riding a camel to see the sunrise from a distance of Uluru….etc.  I stayed for a least 5 days here and felt no bore at all.   This sacred huge stone “Uluru” has such charm to attract people all over the world and I definitely recommend it after my exploration.

早晨的駱駝騎乘,搭配日出的烏魯魯。澳洲有全世界最大的駱駝群,也是我到這裡騎駱駝的時候才知道的~ 全世界大約有一半的雙峰駱駝都在澳洲,因為澳洲中部也有大片沙漠。這與我之前以為在非洲或中東還是中國的想法大相逕庭。

Morning camel riding with the sunrise of Uluru.  Nobody will think Australia has more than half amount of the bactrian camels neither do I until I came here for this activity.  According to wikipedia “The largest population of feral camels is in Australia. There are around 700,000 feral dromedary camels in central parts of Australia, descended from those introduced as a method of transport in the 19th and early 20th centuries.”  I thought the most population of the camels should be in the Middle East or North Africa or in China, but apparently I was wrong.  😛

即使逆光也要跟烏魯魯來一張紀念合照!

Wish someday I can come back again with my family, or good friend of mine, or the one I wish to go together most – my husband.
