Wanderlust - on Sydney Roads

The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
-- J R R Tolkien

Blue skies, white fluffy clouds, traveling with us for miles.

I am in love with the roads. The miles and miles of long winding roads, rising up and down, and circling the lush green hills. They represent Freedom, sometimes careless and wayward. One of the reasons why I love road trips is I love watching the road ahead. It may sound crazy but I can stare ahead of me for hours and hours on, watching the dividers and white traffic lines zoom past me. Maybe because I don't drive, I just enjoy the views and stick my head out of the window. :P

Still round the corner there may wait
A new road or a secret gate,
And though we pass them by today,
Tomorrow we may come this way
And take the hidden paths that run
Towards the Moon or to the Sun.
-- J R R Tolkien

The Australian countryside is stunning. I have recently started exploring places outside and around Sydney and I am totally in love with the change in scenary.

These roads invoke a sense of comfort, as if I have numerous choices laid out in front of me. Unforced, unrestricted. The wild wind and swaying trees make me forget all the materialistic pursuits. 

They taunt me to slow down time, taste the air and breathe in the lingering fragrance of Life.


  1. That's an interesting bridge with those towers in the last photo, I do think the countryside there is quite stunning indeed!

  2. vivid images of wonderful roads and paths in our lives...Lovely..

  3. It's beautiful...I love how vivid the colors are

  4. Nice pics...the ones outside of Sydney...they are down south, right? Look a bit familiar.

  5. Simply gorgeous shots and simply awesome roads!

  6. Beautiful!! I enjoy watching the endless roads and the country side scenery for the same reason... Don't drive ;) : D

  7. As I drive I like to stop rather than drive on as I fear I am missing such scenes by having to concentrate so much of the driving. But there again I don't live where there are thousands of miles of open country.

  8. Lovely pictures! I love the Tolkien quote you shared. ♥

  9. Nice series. Makes me want to jump in my car and take a trip! :)

  10. Beautiful. I have only visited Sydney once, and didn't have a car. Too bad, I see know. Maybe next time.

  11. Lovely shots. After having been on a long road trip from Cairns to Sydney one year, I can really understand how the highway connotes "freedom" to you. The drive is unlike any other I've been on and so very beautiful too.

  12. Great photos!
    I really like the Tolkien quotes, too!

  13. Your blue sky is spectacular. I too love drive by shots of roads.

  14. Lovely scenery and clouds.


I absolutely love reading comments, so don't be shy ... write something down :)
