Life isn't a business to be managed, it's a mystery to be lived!

I’m dividing it up and it makes this road trip look like it was longer than the one I did with the van. But that’s not the case.

Went up to see the sunrise and to leave for Aligator Gorge, the trek of the day. Sometimes we are good guys and actually pay for things such as park entrance fees.

Love it when we make funny poses to take pictures!

So we thought we where doing the 2 hour walk…but we ended up doing the track that takes 6 hours… but we did that in 2.5 hours anyway so we were good 🙂 As always, the signs say waaaay too long time for every walk.

My favorite of the day! Love the colors!

I don’t know what this is…but I don’t think I should be taking a close up of it…

Since the walk was longer than we expected, we got on a wide road all of a sudden…for too long. But you always notice this and that and I was noticing different colors in cracked rocks!

Adelaide is our next stop. We camped in a caravan park in the city this time. I stayed at home writing my diary while the others went out for a drink. I was not alone though. This little possum mommy was out and about looking through our food. When I first noticed her she was eating our bread. When I tried to scare her she did not care. I saw she had a baby in her pouch as it was about to fall out.

Above she wanted to reach our garbage bag. I thought it was just cans but have a look

She was not the only possum of course. They were having a circus show above my head in the trees. Many of them did come down and said hi
Another one

What have I done in every big city I’ve been to? The Botanical Garden!
First we went to the botanical gardens and then a stroll around Adelaide center.
Yes I’m a little bit strange. So this is a tiiiiny little one…and I share it with you! 😉

In town we got stuck in the first little (looked small from the outside) store for some time. Just cute and beautiful stuff.

Yes, I took a random picture of this kid. Only because he looked like my cousins kid in Greece! When he was a bit younger though.
Does anyone agree?

Camped near a lighthouse but it sure was a boring lighthouse…
Next morning

We are now coming close to the start of Great Ocean Road in Warnambool.
Now this is a pretty one

I wont show you the thousand pictures from every place. You get to see thousands of other things. Some nice some less interesting maybe :p but hey, I just don’t want to show what eeeeeveryone else has, can you blame me?

Ναί μαμά, ξέρω! Προσέχω! Μουάτς!

The world famous ones…but I actually think Bay of Islands, just outside of Warnambool, was more remarkable.

Cape Otway
I’ve seen signs that warn you about koalas on the road but I sure didn’t think they walk along the road man! Cute as! And not really afraid..some random woman further down.

On the way we found my favorite berries and ate a few (read many) and brought some with me

Final sleeping destination for this trip is Lorne. I’ve been here before as you might recognize. This means I’ve sort of done the loop now.
SAM_7852

If you go to Lorne, a visit to Erskine Falls is a must. There’s always water all year round. Yes winter time it was prettier but still pretty in summer as well. We met this crazy old lady here.
