I had two weeks off work recently and took the opportunity to do some touring around Victoria.
Mrs Holt Press and I had a day out to Warrnambool in the south west of the state on the train.
I then took a train and bus journey to Mildura to visit Julie and Mrs King before going on to Benalla via Swan Hill to see Mum and Vicki. As "promised" here are a few pics from my travels.
