This blog is about my travels. At home in New Zealand, in other parts of Oceania, North, Central and South America and in Europe.
The next morning I took the bus and train out East. I headed over one of San Francisco's many bridges and spotted Alcatraz on the way. I've mentioned my interest in survival stories earlier in this blog - and the escape from Alcatraz was one of the ones I'd read about. Unfortunately, despite a well planned and daring escape from the prison, I also think its unlikely that the escapees survived the voyage across the treacherous seas of the harbour. I said goodbye to the Pacific ocean and headed inland. I am impressed with Amtrak - I do recommend it as a way to travel! I went past orchards of cherry trees, plum trees, corn fields, cattle stations. Eventually I started heading into the forest, towards my next destination, Yosemite!
I am a traveller from New Zealand. My blog is to inform friends and family about my adventures. I hope you enjoy it.
