We crossed the Nullabor Plain on the Indian Pacific Railway over the last three days. I now have proof that Sasketchawan is only the second flatest place in the whole world.
The railway has the longest strait piece of track in the entire world. Almost 500km without a curve. There are only a few trees visible at any given time (and you can see a long way) and they are only about waist high. There is nothing. I have been to the right left and middle of nowhere.
I don't know what I expected of the train journey from Perth to Adelaide, maybe a tree or two. The sheer size of the nothing was amazing. The french people with us said that it was like a trip from Paris to Moscow would be, and they would never think of riding the train to Moscow in a million years.
Cedric said that once he wanted to visit a friend in Northern France, but it was a two hour trip so he skipped it. Now he's up for driving all over Europe.
We found a nice hostel here in Adelaide very easily and are just going to try to catch up on a little sleep that we missed on the train.
