    Day 58: The cold Blue Mountains ;-)

    September 16, 2016 in Australia

    Checkin out at a normal time finally, walk with the already 24kg backpack to Kings cross in Sydney. I was used to it but it is getting literally heavier every day haha. From here to central station and I could wait in train heading for Springwood near the Blue Mountains. Time for blogging enough and arrived in Springwood around 1400. I walked to my motel becaus I guessed that the 1.5km would be quicker than waiting for the bus. The bus arrived at the same time haha, I hate waiting anyway ;-).
    Checked in and walked to the next station directly, again no bus but this time for 50 minutes, I tried to hitch-hike, no succes ;-). From Faulconbridge to Leura by bus anyway since I couldn't get a train ticket and the arrival time would be the same, this is what always happens with me and public transport it is never efficient. You need an opal card to digital check in and out and on this station you couldn't get any paper tickets. The bus arrived at 1618 and where I got out the plan was to hop on the hop on hop off bus ;-) but had to wait 50minutes again but it was freezing cooold in my t-shirt. So I took a picture of the list and run for the closest stop to keep warm. Leura Cascades a beautifull walkway next to multiple waterfalls. I tought I could wait here but I saw the sign and figured I could run to the next to stay warm. Gordon falls, well I could have made it but there were to many beautifull views on the route so I enjoyed those and hopped on a stop in between. Bought the ticket for 3 days and rode along for 20 minutes and got off again. Went looking for shops to buy a sweater but no shops were open, I bought my breakfast for tomorrow and had diner at an Indian restaurant, yes yes really good food. When I came outside it was even colder I, I hid for the wind on the cold platform and jumped on the train back to Springwood. Hot shower, coffee and some cleaning up. Time to prepare for Defqon 1 so enough sleep is welcome ;-). Music on and dream of partytime :).

    The Blue Mountains have no shortage of places that have great views.

    So, why are they called Blue Mountains. It's an interesting factoid :-)

    There are a ton of Eucalyptus trees in the mountains. Those trees release a fine mist of oil into the air. That mist, from a distance refracts a blueish hue. Kimda cool, and it means that the area will always have a slight haze to it.

    Blue Mountains

    April 4, 2015 in Australia

    Unfortunately it is a really bad wether here. It is raining all day and foggy that you can't even see 50m. We went for a little walk after breakfast. Now, we have decided to carry on.

    Scheiße Wetter hier!
    Hier ist es mal richtig schlecht Wetter. Dauerregen und Nebel, dass du keine 50 m siehst! Wir sind heute für eine kurze Wanderung gegangen. Aber des hat keinen Sinn hier.... also haben wir beschlossen weiter zu fahren.Read more
