"Australia" margsch's Profile
As a nurse I worked together with 1 colleague at this small clinic, we dealt with all and sundry, a Doctor visited once a month and we could ring him for phone advice if needed. Anyone who was quite ill was flown out from our local airstrip using the Flying Doctor service - this became quite a community event as all the locals would make their way out to the airstrip too.
Oak Valley is right up in the Great Victorian desert, 600km from Ceduna.
Every 8 weeks we had a 2 week break to return home.. Usually I was driven up there with the weekly grocery truck but my main photo is of me waiting for the Indian Pacific at Watson Siding, a request stop. This stop was 150 km south of Oak Valley. The ride on the train was fabulous, it was 16hrs back to Adelaide.
some of the girls waiting for their hair to be done and their washing to dry prior to a school trip.
My favorite place for a holiday, Garmisch is in the Bavarian alps close to the Austrian border, local buses travel far afield so it is possible to visit a different spot every day for 2 weeks if you wish to. There is a busy train station with 1 hourly trains to Munich.
Many homes in this area have the frescos painted on the outside walls and the flowering window boxes truly make this area Chocolate box scenery.
At the end of summer cows are brought down from the mountains and return to their barns for the winter.
This lovely town on a lake is only 30 minutes out of Munich, s-bahn 6 will get you here. In summer there are cruises available.
