View from our Hike to the top! Well worth it!
Arriving in Melbourne, we were welcomed by my lovely parents! What a treat to see them half way across the world! Over several prior phone conversations, I convinced them to travel ‘our way’ so they rented a camper van and off we went. We spent 6 days on the Great Ocean Road before we parted ways. To our surprise, the week started out with an extreme heat wave of 40 degree weather, and ended with some nights getting to about 8 degrees! They have some seriously crazy weather over here! During the time with my parents, I discovered a truly amazing fact about my dad: he is the energizer bunny on high speed!! Always wanting to walk, drive, sight see, and never sit down! 7am to 9am… or longer if we would allow him! It was a fun 6 days, but we were exhausted by the end! As they went back to Melbourne and on to Tasmania, Dave and I continued driving to Adelaide, this time taking our time and relaxing along the way. Once in Adelaide I met up with a friend from home. We traveled back towards Melbourne together stopping at his friends wedding on the way! An Australian
One of our favourite road trip activities was stopping at neat little cafe's along the way for coffee
wedding is very similar to our Canadian traditions, just with far less ‘organized table games’. It was a very small wedding, and aside from the bride and groom, I’d say we were like celebrities, since we are from Canada! After the wedding we continued on and I met up with another friend in Melbourne, spent 4 days there, and finally flew back to my beach home the coast!
Overall, an amazing trip, but I was happy to see my own shower and bed again at the end of it!
