Project Australia '01
In mid-january, two small Swiss guys are heading south to explore the remote, red continent to get an idea of Australian life, culture, history and landscape. To follow their paths, simply click on the different links on the map, and you will be automatically directed to the specific location where you'll be informed what's going on there.
Basically, we plan to travel throughout a foreign country for a longer time, far from home and from the duties we have there in daily life. We are convinced to get some new inspirations of living, we want to meet a heap of people and want to experience the special beauty of the huge continent. We'll see what nightlife is all about in the big cities (Melbourne, Sydney, Perth, Brisbane ...) and what it means to pass a hot day in the Outback during the summertime.
Of course we won't keep you uninformed. If you wanna receive the hottest news from Down Under, click on the link to the mailing list and you'll get an update whenever we have to talk about our experiences and whenever an internet access is near.

Project Australia is not only about photography. I was really interested what daily life in youth hostels, especially in the ones where (working) people stayed for a longer while, is like. You meet a lot of people during your journey, and some of them again: In the next hostel, on sightseeing tours in the outback or even somewhere on the street. Happened for example with Oscar, I guy we met first in Melbourne and then twice in Brisbane in the Mall and the museum. That's one of the most stunning experiences I had in Australia, how you coincidentally meet people again... You get some of these impressions in the people gallery or black and white.
