So my husband and I recently visited Australia for an epic road trip of awesome. We flew into Melbourne, drove west to Peterborough to catch some of the Great Ocean Road and the Twelve Apostles, then drove many hours to Sydney. n the way there, we hit up Wilson’s Promontory and Montague Island to see fairy penguins. After Syndey, we drove over to the Blue Mountains THEN back to Melbourne. I believe we put like 3000 km on our rental car. Covered a sizable chunk of Oz too 😛 And we had a manual, so my husband had to drive 😛

This was one of the most beautiful coastal drives I’ve ever done. Though I will be honest, the Antrim Coast in Northern Ireland MAY be slighter better, which (obviously) is saying a lot!

What’s the most scenic drive you’ve ever done?

On safari in Australia


Lots of amazing animal encounters so far…. Thankfully none of the poisonous variety lol. Koalas, kangaroos, kookaburas, wombats, emus, parrot things, and one thing I forgot the name of but it looked liked a hedgehog. So many Australian animals start with K!  Oh, and cows. Lots of cows. Like more cows than people.
