A visit to the neighbours

Here is an overall view of our recent trip to Australia. In this second visit, we spent 3 days in Melbourne and a whole week touring around Victoria (mainly along the Great Ocean Road and the Grampians NP). The weather wasn't that nice on most of the days, but we had a lovely time nonetheless and we are already looking forward to our next visit!

And here you can see some of the pictures of our trip:

Oh! and next time somebody asks me where New Zealand is, I'll be careful not to say "it's that country close to Australia"...Four hours on a plane, that is more than 2,500km, is not what I would call "close", that's longer than a flight from Barcelona to Istanbul!! ;-)

Beautiful photos, looked like you had an amazing roadtrip! How did your Wicked van pull up?

Phil said...

The road trip was awesome, thanks! The van was actually not in great condition though... Worst thing was probably that the heating didn't work and everything got really damp inside. And there were more issues...

Hey J.

Nice to see you went to the GOR.
I've been there some years ago, and I must say it looks much better in May :)
Hope you are both doing good.
Take care !
