2015 started over the Ross Sea, Antarctica, having been diverted from the planned route to Commonwealth Bay and Mawson’s Hut due to bad weather.

In April the RROCA car club organised an Overlander (the name of the touring group) to the Perth Federal Rally via Darwin. I took The Ghan (train)to Darwin and joined the Overlanders who had arrived there from Sydney for the drive to Perth through the Kimberley, Pilbara, and Batavia regions of Western Australia – the timing was just after the wet season and the vivid reds, yellows, greens, and black creating amazing scenery. My return was via The Indian-Pacific (Train).  There were many highlights, see my photographs below, also try this BBC link of the horizontal falls at Talbot Bay: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mJ9kdhVJT0U

July saw me in Napa Valley California for the Annual Festival de Sole (10th Season) with The Russian National Orchestra as resident musicians for the 9th year. I also visited in CA, Yosemite National Park, Lake Tahoe, Truckee, and in NV Reno & Virginia City, with some of my RNOs friends.

A number of local trips filled in the winter months, and in November after the Annual NSW Transport Heritage Museum Members Conference I did a Food & Wine and a Comedy Cruise on the P & O ship Pacific Jewel
