What was a curious interest in the area, turned out to be interesting days of exploration. What a delight the Yarra Valley turned out to be! We even extended our stay. We headed onwards from there to Ballarat where I shared some of Australia’s gold history with Rich.
While there’s more to Phillip Island, the highlight are the penguins at Penguin Parade. Yes, even over those Hemsworth boys. After a great trip prior with Nat, I was excited to share the experience with Rich. While it was memorable, not all of it was in a positive way.
It’s amazing how different something looks in real life. Even Google couldn’t deliver the amazing reality of Wilsons Promontory in Victoria. The place was stunning. It made the photography in me have very itchy fingers. From whales, to wombats, to meandering hikes. We indulged in a cabin, which we were thankful of when a massive storm blew in, but I can see camping here for a while too.
The latest Travel Journal Entry: Canberra for this trip was different. Rich and I had some shopping to do and preparation for Natalie’s birthday. Our girl was turning 18th. Life Changes.
Bright was one of the places I’d had on my personal Living List for a while. I’m not even sure how I had heard about it but it was a place I was curious about. It’s located in the Victorian High Country, nestled between mountains, easily accessible to the ski fields in Victoria. I hadn’t even seen many photos of Bright, to be honest. I just knew in my heart it was a place to add to our 10 month roadtrip.
During our travels, we’ve found we determine the vibe of a place very quickly. Most times, it’s positive and with an uplifting energy. In Loch Sport, we didn’t find at that all. If it wasn’t for the fact that we were housesitting and loving the pets we were looking after, we wouldn’t have stayed for more than a day.
