    Hi Melissa

    My name is Lin from Singapore and I just stumbled upon your FB and blog while researching for my Darwin & Alice Spring trip this coming Aug. Glad to find an Asian and from Singapore some more that has just been to these 2 places recently! I always find the opinions or reviews from persons of similar heritage/race/age to suit my interests better compare to caucasians ;P So hope you do not mind me asking a couple of questions which I have not been able to find online so far.

    Is network readily available in this 2 places especially in Uluru other than hotel or cafes that offer free wifi as I will also be taking the 3 days camping trip to see Ayers Rock? I am thinking of renting the wifi egg or portable wifi but not sure if there will be reception at all for me to receive wifi. Do you mind to share how do you have access to internet while there? Did you buy the local sim card?

    Where did you stay while in Darwin and Alice Spring? – YHA?? Are they clean?

    After my Uluru trip I will stay in Darwin for 5 nights – do you mind to share good and not so expensive places for meals? and any places to recommend us that we can visit or explore while in Darwin?

    Thanks in advance and look forward to your reply.

    Regards

    • Hey Lin, always happy to share!!

      Network coverage – i got a local sim from Telstra from a guy from HWZ (email me if you want contact). Their coverage was pretty awesome! It was spotty throughout the national parks, but once you get to a campsite I had full reception. Also in remote areas some other people who had Optus and other network sometimes don’t have reception while my Telstra still gets 1-2 bars. In Ayer’s rock I had a little bit of problem when I was in the township (Yulara), but I could still get network at the town square and hotels area. The only complain I have is 2gb was not enough for 16 days for me, but I am a heavy data user. Free wifi was difficult to come across in Yulara / Uluru though… Even the coffee shops didnt have any.

      Accomodation – Yes i stayed in YHA for both Darwin and Alice Springs (since I was sponsored by them) and I have no complaints. The Darwin one requires about 5 min walking to town, which i didn’t mind but there’s another more central hostel which I forgot the name (something backpackers). For Alice Springs YHA it was awesome all around, both location and cleanliness.

      For things to do in Darwin – definitely explore the markets if you are there on a weekend. Mindil beach market is a must (thurs and sun), then there are Parap, Nightcliff and Rapid Creek (check their opening days). I visited the museum since it was free. You can also visit the crocosaurus museum (not free, but awesome if you want to get clear view of the crocs!) or the war museum (I didn’t have time).

      Another tip for Darwin – you can pay $7 for all day bus pass. If you pay the $3 fare it’s also good for 2 hours of unlimited transport on the bus, not just a single fare!

    • Hi Chiara, most of the time (99%) it’s funded entirely by my savings :) If it’s a sponsored trip, I would note it otherwise on my blog / instagram post. As of today (June 3) I have only gone on one sponsored trip to Australia!

  3. Just watching the German report from Berlin. Great show overall. I like the idea of reporting on different foods and some of the tips and hints throughout the show. However, one thing that was terrible was the back ground music throughout the show. It was southern Bavarian music not heard, played or listened to in the north. German people are very musically talented and have great music, but the music is very regional. A suggestion for future shows, play music in the background which would be played in the region you are reporting on. Minor thing, but somewhat important. Great show, keep it up! 🍻

    Hello
    My name is Brenda. My husband and I have been inspired by your blog in the sense that we decided to try a new dish from around the world each week at our dinner table :) YUM!!
    On a more less related note… And simple out of envy… I was wondering where you purchase your simple elegant dresses you have worn on your trip to Tokyo and Milan
    Thank you for your interesting and delicious blog!
    Cheers
    Bren

  7. Hi
    I watched your episode on Sydney …the references to Australia having a basis from Convict food is really insulting to me…and the laughs..really ??? Why try to establish an untruth ? Did Australia require asian people to bring it food.?? Why were all the European background restaurants and sea food restaurants ? Sydney is a huge melting pot of people from every country in the world…please be careful of creating racism towards Australians.
