Last week we moved from the Darwin CBD up to Nightcliff. It is a 20 min drive from the city but you do not have to share the streets with backpackers in Nightcliff. Instead you get the beautiful sea views and are close to the nature. As you can see on the “map” of Darwin there are a few markets here. One of the most popular on is Midil Beach Sunset Market.
You can find anything from food, clothes, art, jewelry to local artists playing on stage. The market is always crowded and you can tell that the citizens of Darwin love to meet up and hang out here.
Aussie burgers someone? Or maybe some Honey Puffs? 🙂
Lots of long walks along the coast. At night time you can be outside without dying. Well, you still sweat a lot (or I do) but hopefully my body will adjust soon…..
Something Darwin has got is stunning sunsets. Every evening the sky lights up with fantastic colors, each day different from the other.
We ended the weekend with Darwin food and wine festival. And of course with some fireworks.

Litchfield has several stunning tropical waterfalls and swimming holes.
It is beautiful but it is not like the beaches in Perth…. After 30 minutes we have had enough of both of the hot weather and of all the people. Being accustomed to having a whole beach to yourself, it is pretty hard to enjoy sitting on hard rocks next to three screaming kids.
People who lives in Darwin seems to love the place. So far I am not too impressed. Hoping that I soon will understand the charm of this hot and humid city.
Time for some sailing on the Swan River! Weather is perfect, 30 degrees and a little bit windy. Hope to see dolphins that are often found swimming in the River :). Last time I was sailing on a Catamaran was when I was seven years old and part of the scouts back home. I was not very impressive back then so hopefully I will be a little bit better today.
The famous Vallée Blanche in Chamonix is an off-piste ski route, 17km long with a vertical descent of 2700m. The longest ski run in the world!!!!!The views are stunning and the high mountain environment provides a real sensation of wilderness.
