Our time in Alice Springs, Mparntwe, was much needed. We had done huge kilometres and between Ben and I were quite stressed about the first half of the trip. We’re adventurous, but with lots of free camping, vomit bugs, new places and the remoteness of our trip, we were relieved when we made it and checked into the caravan park. We spent a good amount of time resting, stocking up on supplies and sleeping. It was bloody hot, and our van’s air conditioner wasn’t keeping up. Surprisingly, we only took a handful of photos during our stay there. My favourite being the beautiful Sturt’s Desert Pea that grew wild in the area. I had never seen it before, and it certainly didn’t disappoint. We visited Parrtjima during our time at Mparntwe. This was coincidental with the timing, but I was proper impressed when I saw we were able to go, as it was something I really wanted to do. The festival was mesmerizing. I had been told it was spectacular, but it was so much more than that. It was spiritual. The children danced freely over projected artworks, we lay under the lights on what felt like pillows of clouds, and we watched Dreamings projected onto the hills that ran through Country, important sites telling important stories. It is a place I will visit again.
