On the advice of Ian, who runs Wanderers Retreat, we took the scenic route down to our next destination (which was Katoomba in the Blue Mountains). It was a great idea as it meant we’d get to see some more of the area without just blasting down a motorway in our fake 4×4.
The roads were quiet, almost empty and we passed through loads of small towns and even saw a couple of familiar ones:
And even the odd monster!
It’s amazing the things you see driving off the main roads. Normally I’d have been driving like a lunatic along the twisty roads but I was taking it easy, looking at the scenery in no particular hurry. Just the way it’s meant to be on holiday. And of course, I had my lovely wife alongside me doing a fantastic job of navigating – not even a single mistake! 😉
