Australia by numbers, road map

Six weeks trough three regions of Australia: New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland.
5000 km, only the West and South East Coasts… Still so many places to see. Well, I guess I’ll have to keep the Outback, Uluru, Alice Springs, Darwin, Perth, for another visit…
In between, should you wonder how my recent Oz explorations translate on a map and what budget that could represent, here come some indications – You can click to enlarge the visuals.

Australia 1

I’ve travelled with a rented car the two first weeks, through NSW and Victoria, then I did fly to Cairns and bought a 300 euros bus pass to travel from Cairns to Sydney, through Queensland and NSW.

Australia 2

Overall an amazing road trip… Tomorrow, I’ll share some of the landscapes i’ve observed from my Greyhound window and you’ll see how it slowly changes from North to South…

D64. Nov3. Blog update & record

No daily news today.
But don’t leave immediately, and don’t cry please!
I’ve totally reshaped the “pages” (in opposition to daily “posts”).

The “About me” is now called “Me, a globe-trotter”, focussing on my previous trips.
On the right column of the blog, you have a real “about me” section, about my job and competencies.

The “Road” Page in now called “planed itinerary and local roadmaps”.
I have added to the primary plan one map per country I have visited or will cross in the next months.

And the “Preparation” page remains “preparation. Though, I’ve added much more information, questions & answers, infographics, about it, divided into four sections.

Already a lot to go through.
I’ll be back tomorrow with a Delhi daily (haha) news.
And please, share your thoughts and comments about those brand new pages !

Oh, one more thing: Yesterday was a great day, as MyScenicRailaway, after two months of activity, exceeded 5000 views !!!
