Travelling again

Hi

In Australia again this time to visit my daughter who landed herself a job here nearly 3 years ago whilst she was supposed to be house sitting for her Mother and me who were on what we thought was a trip of a lifetime - 145 days touring Australia and New Zealand and finishing off with a 35 day cruise home from Oz via south Africa and Namibia and a few other places.

AThis trip isn't quite as long, only 65 days, but as I did last time I am posting a few pictures to my own website each day.

You can see them here

There is a link to the previous trip at the bottom of the first page

Re: Travelling again

Must be tough going in that sun, Rab. We are blessed with grey skies and rain

Enjoying these photos and your blog.

Being a wild life lover. I particularly like seeing the White faced Heron and the Willie Wagtail.

We get Spoonbills down on the south coast at times. Curious creature.


Keep posting !

Re: Travelling again

Followed your blog, Rab.

The day trip to the wineries and cheese centre sound like heaven.

Great photos from your hot air balloon flight. Wouldn't mind trying that myself.
Natty idea, putting a pizza oven in the van. Just wonder about the combination of van fuel and heat from the stove


There are some very good xmas lights among your shots. I like the last coloured lights photo from your blog.

Re: Travelling again

I feel for you Rab, having to put up with the weather there.

We are blessed with rain and now frost

Enjoying following your trip, via your blog.

Booze cruise sounds fun, even if there was no whiskey.

The Customs House is an interesting building.

Keep the photos coming. They brighten up miserable days here.

Re: Travelling again

Three years ago Penny and I were in Australia and New Zealand the same time you were. Our trip was only three months. We'd love to go back! Keep posting the pictures.

Re: Travelling again

The link to your latest travels is very interesting and informative.

The miles you are travelling shows how vast Australia is.

Pleased to see the wildlife especially the eagle and kangaroos.

Looking forward to the next series.

Thanks.

Re: Travelling again

These are terrific, Rab

Your visual record is very enjoyable to see.

It's almost as though we were there with you.

I always knew that Australia was vast. You photos show this well.

Your train looks quite plush compared to English trains.


The little Dingo looked malnourished. But I guess that's to be expected in nature.

Like the flying Doctors landing strip


Keep em coming. I look forward to seeing your ventures.

I see that quite a few like to follow your thread, even if only a handful of us comment.

Re: Travelling again

Thank you all for your comments.
Glad that you are enjoying the series.
Not likely to be much in the next few days but we are going to Rotness island on the 27th.
Have a great Christmas
Rab
