Getting lost

The outback in our region is a place to get lost. No (or hardly any) road signs and driving in circles if you don’t orientate yourself on the surrounding landscape. Wonderful place to be in nowhere…

        “The bundus” is considered a South African regionalism. I’ve since started a bit of digging (I am a translator by profession, after all) and while “outback” has primarily Australian connotations it is used occasionally in other countries as well. Oxford English Dictionary lists as second meaning: “In extended use: the remote inland regions of any country (usually with allusion to the Australian interior).” πŸ™‚

        Thank you very much for this info. I could have looked into my own Oxford dictionary … πŸ˜‰
