Welcome Wall

Today we all jumped on a very early train to Sydney. It only takes a couple of hours to get to Sydney and the train journey travels through some great scenery.

Our task for the day was to mark our anniversary of our arrival in Australia by registering our family name to be engraved on a huge bronze wall in Sydney. It's called the Welcome Wall and includes thousands of names of immigrants that have arrived on these shores. More sections of it are released each year with new names engraved upon it. There is also a searchable database that can be accessed via the web.

Apparently, our name will appear late next year (we hoped it would be ready within a week !).
