The Great Ocean Road

They say it is about the journey and not the destination, well this was one trip to remember. I had pre-booked this trip before I left the UK. It was never on my bucket list but I am so glad I did this. I was picked up from my hotel at 8am and set off in a mini bus.,Once we were all on half way through the tour guide made us introduce ourselves with a mic, yes this really happened. He said it was a great ice-breaker, it was also great to learn people very close to home were on the bus. We made a couple of stops before, so we had coffee and biscuits and even went past the lighthouse, remember that show ‘Round the Twist?’

Our next stop was a walk through the forest not to mention Koala searching. One thing I noticed about Australia is that the people really take care of the environment and appreciate nature. I mean why wouldn’t you with all this beautiful scenery.

The air was so fresh and clean I honestly found it so therapeutic, if you like me enjoy long walks then this is highly recommended. Our journey then continued across – we made a stop at the ocean to take a few snaps.

The stops were very short, literally 5-10 minutes and then we were off again. The final destination was the 12 Apostles, it was so windy out there I could barely keep myself in one place. The view is breath taking and like something out of a film.

Next up round the corner you will find London Bridge, there was a lot of history behind this but to be honest I can’t remember it all.

Once we had finished we were back on the mini bus and traveled back home. This was just a day tour and ideal for people with limited time (like me).
