Getting lost

Herman van Bon Photography

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…

    Really beautiful, Herman. I’ve never heard the word “outback” used in a South African or even African context. We used to call that “the bundus”. Has that disappeared?

    1. I know about ‘Bundus’ but I never heard that in South Africa. Besides that -with good memories to Australia- I prefer ‘Outback’… πŸ˜‰

        “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™‚

        A little crazy, just like the political environment. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
