Skywatch Friday :

Not particularly a 'genuine' skywatch post, but there is a little bit of sky in each photo! - pale wintry ... very cold ... in fact freezing temperatures!!!)

Yesterday I went with Jeanette and the boys on our new express 'Gautrain', in Johannesburg, which was launched a few weeks ago ..

The initial stage is open .. from Sandton to OR Tambo International Airport and as it's school holidays at the moment and Jeanette had taken a few days off work, we decided to take the boys on their first train trip (they had never been on any sort of train before) ..

... they were in awe .. at the speed .. the view from the window ...

... the whole experience !!!!
For spectacular skies around the world visit Skywatch


  1. Looks good Avril...have heard about this train and also wondered if safe to travel on...but seems all good!

  2. The Gautrain is a wonderful thing for Gauteng. As long as it stays in use and the demand doesn't drop. I'm hoping for a trip to Jhb for which I only need to go to Sandton so that I can take the train.

  3. Looks like a fantastic esperience.

  4. I bet the boys had a great time...I love to ride on trains...
