AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

Relaxed travelling

Peaceful indeed, and such a wonderful way to travel - if only for a short ride.

I don't think I've ever ridden in a horse and carriage and haven't given it a thought until I saw your lovely image here. Now the 'seed' has been planted...
