21.01.2007 - 23.01.2007
Left Perth in the morning to get the Indian Pacific to Adelaide. The first stop was in Kalgoolie a gold mining town, stayed there about three hours, some people went on a tour of the town and gold mine, we decided to go on a pub crawl in stead, bit difficult when its a sunday and there is only one pub open. Never mind we all got back on the train okay.
The train went across the Nullabor plain, (means no trees) and there is a whole lot of nothing outhere. Stopped in a deserted town called Cook, which now exists only really to serve the Indian Pacific.
Arrived in Adelaide two days later (38 hours) later really tired, as its impossible to sleep on the seats unless you are a midget. I think the feeling was worse than jet lag and it lasted longer, if I ever do the Journey again, I think I'll fly.
