Aussie cowgirl

It’s cold and grey today, and I can’t help but reminisce about past travels and amazing adventures. In 2002, I travelled to Australia for the first time. I was a recent graduate, and I just needed to get away from regular life and escape to a world of exploration. I didn’t have anything planned, not even my first night…

Swag life

During my first time in Australia, I really wanted to travel the West Coast. It’s far less touristy than the East Coast, I learnt. But that’s what I was after: avoiding masses and exploring something different. I’d been halfway up the coast and spent time in Kalbarri, Coral Bay and Exmouth, before heading back down to…

Kenneth, the koala

Ha, just kidding! This koala doesn’t have a name, but it could very well have been Kenneth. 😉 When you tour the Great Ocean Road, chances are you’re going to stop at Kenneth River. It’s a road with heaps of trees on both sides and in those trees you can see many koalas in their…

The Grampians

The Grampians is a mountain area/national park in Victoria, Australia. I visited the national park during a tour along the Great Ocean Road. We hiked for a few hours and about halfway we stopped for a lunch break where we had this amazing view! In the bottom right of the photo you can see some buildings,…

Bluff-ing

Nah, I’m just kidding. 🙂 Not bluffing, but definetly looking at the Bluff of Victor Harbor here. In this post, I shared a photo taken from the Bluff looking into the next bay, and now you have one looking at it from the beach. South Australia is a very dry state and this area is no…
