Some people are also calling this massive rock in the middle of Australia, which means in the middle of nowhere, Ayers Rock! When I was in Australia I knew that I had to go there because this place seemed so extraordinary and special to me that I had to see it with my own eyes. During the time when my sister was visiting me in Australia we booked a flight to the Ayers Rock Airport (which only had, believe it or not, 2 gates haha) and once we stepped out of the airplane we walked straight against a heat wall. Well lucky us we decided to go there in February, so the middle of summer.
But nevertheless it was a spectacular experience and it made me so happy to be there - a place which is so far away from home and a place that couldn't be more different to where I was coming from.
While we were there we stayed in a 20 dorm hostel room and due to the heat we could only enjoy this place very early in the morning and later in the evening/night time. But this also ensured that we saw beautiful sunrises and sunsets which were priceless! We did also do a free ranger tour along the Uluru where we found out some interesting facts about this "rock" and now I would just like to share some photos of the Uluru with you guys :)
