Tuesday 9th April 2019, Adelaide. The train arrived in Adelaide early in the morning and today was spent looking around the city. So far the Australian cities, Perth and Adelaide, have been large enough to have everything that you would want or expect but are small enough to be on a human scale.
Monday 8th April 2019, Indian Pacific train. Cross the Nullabor itself today. Very barren, hundreds and hundreds of miles of nothing. Glad I made the right decision to do it this way. We have two off train excursions today where the train stops for an hour or two and we are able to wander around.

Tomorrow I should hit 12,000miles. On Sunday I catch the Indian Pacific train from Perth to Adelaide to avoid cycling across the … More Fremantle
