Photos from Down Under

As promised, some photos…

Here’s me at Durban International, thinking “Can I get on the plane already?”

Seems I wasn’t the only one…

I had a five hour wait in Johannesburg when I landed, so… here’s a photo that I took out of total boredom. Guess which flight was mine?

Talking about Perth, here it is:

… and here’s their supposedly world-famous beach. It’s kind of strange to imagine that Durban is at the other side of that ocean…

Here’s Melbourne:

That last photo is the queue of people waiting to see Shane Warne. Needless to say, I got out of that area pretty damn quickly.

Couldn’t resist this one, though…

Melburnians have a little competition amongst them to see who can put on the best Christmas lights display, with some rather spectacular results. Here’s one of them, taken on the night before I left for Sydney:

This is the place that we went to for Christmas Day:

… and another “can’t resist” photo:

I took many photos in Sydney, mainly of the harbour bridge and opera house, but I won’t post them here, mainly because everyone’s seen photos of that. So here’s one from the Blue Mountains, about an hour and a half west of Sydney. They boast the steepest train ride in the world, as these photos show:

That’s my cousin Lachlan next to me in that last one. And no, that wasn’t the actual train, just a model of it just for people who want to take photos.

There’s many more photos, but I don’t have the time or the space to post all of them. Maybe I’ll put them all up on my website if enough people bother me about it.

Oh, OK, I’ll post one more; this is the photo of me when I finally got back to Durban:

Spot the difference.
