Taro Tour Part 3 - The Great Journey

One of the highlights of Taro & my tour was driving from Melbourne to Brisbane - straight through in 22 hours! We had our small concert in Melbourne on Saturday 22nd, and wanted to reach Brisbane in time to collect Taro's wife Yuriko from the airport on the morning of the 24th. We left Melbourne at 5.45am, took turns driving usually in 2 hour shifts, had a few rest stops along the way and all was fine. The scenery was breathtaking, and I'm really happy to have been able to share it with Taro - coming from Japan this was a major first for him.

This and the next 2 shots were in southern NSW - the flattest parts of the journey.

In Parkes we stopped off at "The Dish"

The Warrumbungles in northern-central NSW

Sunset was particularly beautiful. We were driving through northern NSW, between Moree and Goondiwindi. After a few hills in central NSW the landscape returned to flatness. The sun was setting on our left while there was a full moon rising on our right. Kya baat hai!!!

We made it back in time to have a Rosecliffe Christmas Party!!! :-)
