Fun trip yesterday with Nadeane and Ryan to the Blue Mountains (about 2-hours drive from Sydney). We went up, instead of down, the scenic railway that had a 52 degree incline making it he steepest railway in the world. Not as scary going up but I was imaging the cable breaking and taking a huge fall back down the incline. And PS- we were not buckled in so not sure how that all works out for those boarding to take the railway downwards. Ride at your own risk?
We also rode the skyway with the glass bottom floor where we got a view of Kotoomba Falls then rode the cableway over the rainforest.
We got invited to our new friends house for a BBQ where we got a tour of Jane and Andrew's beautiful gardens and we were introduced to their amazing daughter Julie... And their 4-chickens too. Such a great Sunday afternoon.
