station and just as luck would have it a train arrived just as I got
Once again the journey back down this mountain was simply breath-taking
with sights one just cannot believe. How they ever built these lines I just do

At the top which was also the cave entrance, we realised we had both left our bags in ...

Having never seen snow fall before it was all very surreal while I listened to Staff try and convince me I would love skiing and that we should go. I politely explained that having been here there was no way Thredbo was going to be able to compare.....
