Canberra


Driving back from Sydney to Melbourne can be done via Canberra, Australia's Capital. Wikipedia states that it is 280 km (170 mi) south-west of Sydney, and 650 km (400 mi) north-east of Melbourne, purposely built in 1908 as a compromise between these two rival cities who are both eyeing to be the nation's capital. Read more here.

A quick stopover turned out to be quite longer due to an ongoing fair (the Floriade, Australia's biggest flower festival) and this year's theme showcased films in an elegant collection of flowerbeds. There were food stalls and homemade products like what you would get in Sunday markets - a lot of stuff that would make you want to burst open your purse and go on a shopping spree.

Those Who Stopped By

Scribe's Notes

This pitstop is where incoherent ramblings seem to have meaning, where things or events are thought of and assessed, where great things are documented and perhaps any not-so-good happenings are written down in attempt to be forgotten!

So from the diversely abstract to the intensely specific, it's off to making tracks, and it is here where it stops for a thought or two.
