“…when you’re the driver, you tend to focus more on oncoming traffic and keeping the vehicle between the white lines….”
The number of times I have travelled to Toowoomba over the years is countless. Countless, because I have never really counted them, and I am not saying I go there often, but I do go from time to time. When you’re a passenger in a car, the mind tends to wander off into distant daydreams, thinking about things such as life, problems and happy times. But when you’re the driver, you tend to focus more on oncoming traffic and keeping the vehicle between the white lines.
I thought I would take the opportunity of the 130 km trip to Toowoomba to take some photos. Interestingly, on the way there:
– I met a super friendly and cool farmer named Noel.
– I almost bought a shot of Tequila at The Sundowner Saloon
– I saw a Red Elephant (and I didn’t even have the Tequila!)
– I had coffee made and served by a skinny Fred Flintstone
– I didn’t see people fall from the sky but I could imagine it…
Toowoomba is nicknamed the Garden City, and what better time to visit the garden city than in Spring? The trees were getting their first spring flushes, flowers were gently beginning their opening journey divulging their inner beauty, branches were budding and eggs were 2 for $5.00 dozen (whatever that means)…
I always enjoy my visits to Toowoomba. Last time I was there, I ate a sausage roll with a knife and fork! Oh lah dee dah!! I would recommend that you take the time to stop and enjoy the scenery on your next trip to Toowoomba, alternatively, get someone else to drive the car!
