Train travel


I really like the ads at the railway station, gives me something to look at while I wait.  I like the Opal cards too, so convenient. But quiet carriages can sometimes be a bit of hazard, some people get very agro when someone makes a noise and start making a bigger noise themselves.

  1. We certainly waited a long, long time for those Opal cards. Melbourne and Brisbane had their version installed years ago.

    1. Took a lot of time and money. I can't quite figure out why.

      Was talking to the station master this morning. The older folk are transitioning to Opal Ok. Apparently much better than when they stopped selling tickets and forced people to use machines.

  2. Great capture, Joan. I love the sense of movement you get from this perspective.

Updated Royals

Royal Hotel Durban South Africa
I have updated the Royal Collection at last!  We now have 130 Royals including a recent contribution of 10 Royal Hotels from South Africa.  
I have seen 96 of the Royals myself, just a few more to go to reach 100.


Lawson to Clandulla - the end

We spent one night at Lawson, where the daffodils were beginning to bloom, to unpack the van then headed out to Clandulla where as expected the wattle welcomed us home.
That's the end of this trip, I hope to retire before we set off again.

Gundagai exploring

We were having a coffee at the bakery and I noticed a sign on a hotel saying it was a Cobb and Co coach stop.  That got me wondering if there was a hidden Royal Hotel in the town.  A quick google revealed not that hotel but this derelict one as the former Royal.
