Abandoned Railway Station, Mintaro, South Australia
It's difficult sometimes to look at your own country the way you look at countries that have vastly different cultures and lifestyles to your own. I've been fortunate to travel to a number of countries in the world and experience that feeling of excitement at seeing something new and at times confronting where every turn reveals a new surprise. Australia is vast and once you are free from the cities it's a daunting place of endless plains and flies and other nasties but I do love travelling in it and experiencing it's uniqueness.
