The Sydney Experience

Sydney (23rd March - 3rd April) We were very lucky on the trains from Melbourne to Sydney, both times we managed to get four seats, meaning we could turn them into beds for a more comfortable sleep. We arrived at Central Station Sydney around 10am Sunday morning, Lucy's uncle Jim & Muriel were there to greet us. (Having not seen my uncle for at least 15 years it was amusing walking up the station smiling…

Including three bouncing kangaroos and the "famous" Iron Man statue.

Across the Nullarbor: Surviving the Indian-Pacific

After a very late night of farewell drinks and barbie we woke up slightly hung-over, having to finish off packing before Tamir & Narissa took us to East Perth Train Station. Big Thanks!
