Photographer's Note

These huge trucks are pretty common in Australia. Nickname name for this vehicle is 'roadtrain'. they drive thousands of kilometers. From Perth to Sydney, from Adelaide to Darwin.
I spoke to an ex-roadtrain driver who now was driving for coaches (OZ Experience). She told me that she easily could drive from Perth to Cairns (+/- 4000 km's (2500 miles)) in 2 days. So I asked her how she managed to stay awake cause you can't make that distance in 2 days with sleeping. She told me that she would take a nap for about 15 min's, take some strong coffee and then just continue. Pretty amazing!
But then again, those Aussi's can be weird ;)
