This are two questions/comments we do often hear. Personally we would love to travel more, but hey we both hold a full-time job and getting leave is not always easy and we also need to create enough funds to afford our travels.

There are heaps of blog posts on how to safe money for travel via small things such as making your own lunch and not having coffee’s anymore. There are also travellers who swear by having credit cards which rake up lots of points to enjoy free flights or upgrades. These things might work for some, but not for us.

Red dirt and big blue skies

That is what you will see when you visit Silverton, but there is more!

We love this little mining town, in fact the last time we did visit was less than five years ago, in October 2011.

Silverton is located 25 km North-West of Broken Hill and used to have a thriving Silver mine. This little mining town had in 1890, during the peak of mining business, a population of 3000, nowadays this town is often called a ghost town with a population around 50.
