January 1981, Melbourne
The above pictures were taken for a Youth Hostel Association membership card. I took out my first (and possibly, only?) membership of the organisation just before taking a trip by train to South Australia, with a school friend in January 1981. I had turned 18 on the 22nd of December 1980. We camped and stayed with family friends. It was my third great travel adventure and my second without parental supervision.
Much thanks to my university friend Karin Bieg for help in confirming the date of these photos.
