Vietnam’s highways were dusty, busy and at times jammed to standstill.

Perhaps you’d go for somewhere a little bit quieter. Don’t be fooled by this. This beach is a government gazetted highway where all the rules of the road apply. There is a police presence and you will be fined if you exceed the speed limit.  75 miles long it is also an airstrip.

Most of Australia’s highways are a little more conventional but sometimes the scenery is stunning or unexpected.

About Irene Waters 19 Writer Memoirist

I began my working career as a reluctant potato peeler whilst waiting to commence my training as a student nurse. On completion I worked mainly in intensive care/coronary care; finishing my hospital career as clinical nurse educator in intensive care. A life changing period as a resort owner/manager on the island of Tanna in Vanuatu was followed by recovery time as a farmer at Bucca Wauka. Having discovered I was no farmer and vowing never again to own an animal bigger than myself I took on the Barrington General Store. Here we also ran a five star restaurant. Working the shop of a day 7am - 6pm followed by the restaurant until late was surprisingly more stressful than Tanna. On the sale we decided to retire and renovate our house with the help of a builder friend. Now believing we knew everything about building we set to constructing our own house. Just finished a coal mine decided to set up in our backyard. Definitely time to retire we moved to Queensland. I had been writing a manuscript for some time. In the desire to complete this I enrolled in a post grad certificate in creative Industries which I completed 2013. Commenced a masters by research in 2014.

  7. OMG – in that last pic – is that the smoke from a fire reaching up to the clouds?
    So many ways of traveling along highways, each with their own view of the world.
