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. πŸ˜›



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. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. Beautiful!! I enjoy watching the endless roads and the country side scenery for the same reason… Don't drive πŸ˜‰ : D

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