Always dreamed of taking the train to Perth. After the surgery my balance will be affected for life. Motion sickness may be my new friend. I'm booked to do a double WOP in Perth next week... So, I've decided to take the train before the surgery! First stop — at North Shore Station (Geelong)
Graeme FrauenfelderI love the train across Australia. Enjoy it heaps!
Jodine Azzopardithat will be wonderful! Good for you! Praying motion sickness will not be!
Clansi RogersLiking the train part, not the reason for your surgery!
Vicki KnightPraying for you David. God Bless. The best train ride you will ever have.
Tony CullinanBrilliant mate! Hope you have a ball pal!
Neil WilsonOur family will be praying all goes well for you in surgery Dave. God bless you. Enjoy your trip.
What an amazing day! Beautiful on the train. all the way from Lilydale (at 6am) until Adelaide (at7pm). Sunny. Clear skies. Funny people ride the train. Big windows. Swivelling seats. I worked a half-day on my iPad. Random conversations with various people - also random. I read for hours on my Kindle. I took snapshots out the window, doctored them up and posted them on FB. Just finished tea downstairs. Went shopping at Coles for breaky (right across the road!). Now, I'm sitting on my bed, with free wifi... Life is good! — at Metropolitan Hotel (Adelaide)
Philip KnightWell done Dave. And what memorable things you get up to!! Good on you!! Enjoy the trip across the desert :)
Candice JaquesYou should get some great story material on your train adventure.
Just Overheard: "Look at that gum tree. Isn't it amazing how the morning sun shines off it's leaves."
My Thought: "Nobody flying from Melbourne to Perth ever says that!"
Aldona Jonesno...but substitute "gum tree" with "sunrise" and "leaves" with "colourful clouds" and it brings back memories of flights from Melb to Perth (or Sydney, or Brisbane, or wherever). however you travel, you will always have an opportunity to glimpse some of God's wonders that you wouldn't see any other way!
Katherine DarrochI did that flight twice last year - the only thing that I was saying was, "If they didn't cram in so many rows of seats I may actually be able to move my legs now..." Guess you don't have that problem either hey?
