The start of my journey
I started my journey by train-a perfect way to begin a holiday. I rarely catch trains so this was quite a novelty but one I very much enjoyed and plan to do again. I left Canberra at 6:45am which turned out to be perfect as I was able to see the heavy frost on the grass and watch the sunrise over the hills.
Ready to leave.
Seats were very comfortable and I was able to sleep for part of the trip.
One very nice hot chocolate, perfect on a cold morning.
The trip from Canberra to Sydney takes 4 hours, whilst a plane trip takes 29 mins (55 mins including waiting to take off, taking off and landing) so rail is not the fastest way to travel but certainly far more relaxing. No wonder the Victorians enjoyed it so much.
Sunrise from the train - it was beautiful to watch unfold.
A wind farm we past on our way. Even though I would not want to live near a wind farm I do like their sculptural affect on the landscape.
Passing a cottage just before
sunset (should have said sunrise!!).
One of the many stations we past through.
