Plenty of foot traffic alongside Sydney Harbour…

…and Sydney Harbour Bridge was busy enough

with vehicular traffic.

home

the place where one lives permanently,
especially as a member of a family
or household.

No matter where I have been travelling, many

international flights usually touch down

in Sydney first.

Therefore with the sighting of the

Sydney Harbour Bridge comes a feeling of home.

Sighting Melbourne’s skyline and Victorians

know they are home.

To me, this is the most famous, or infamous bridge in the world. 

I think it was a Primary School teacher who

introduced me to Florence’s

Bridge of Sighs

From that day forth it was always

on my mind to see/visit in person

Was it because I crossed it in a previous life? 

Some I know would heartily agree.

 

Dubai’s elevated railway appears to be

one long bridge stretching through the city.

 

 

One of my favourite New Zealand landscapes.

 

 

Finally, the bridge everyone recognises.

Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Sydney Harbour fences.

My kinda fencing

The only thing keeping this lamb behind

this old fence is a full belly.

A fence to keep giraffes out.

And just outside our tent door was a fence (foreground)

to keep elephants away.

It worked well, especially with this elephant.

Arch of Victory

spanning

Ballarat’s Avenue of Honour

The Ballarat Avenue of Honour is famous for being the first avenue of its kind in Australia (perhaps in the world) and the longest of its kind in the southern hemisphere.

It incorporates the Ballarat Arch of Victory and extends for approximately 22 kilometres.

Arc de Triomphe, in Paris

Finally, the…

…Arch in Ypres’

Menin Gate

in Belgium.

I had heard my Father talk of

Menin Gate all my life.

So my 2017 visit was a

truly moving experience,

to visit the battlefields

and pass along the same roads

as my Grandfather did,

during World War I,

all those years ago.

Certainly Australia’s best known arch.

Not sure how it rates on a world stage

although we are constantly told

it is recognised the world over.
