Well, it’s been a busy week. I started out with a camping tour of Kangaroo Island which is the third largest island in Australia. Located off the coast of Adelaide, highlights include seeing penguins (finally!), koalas, seals, sea lions and of course kangaroos in the wild. We drove all around the island, checking out stuff like Stoke’s bay for swimming (the coldest water I ever want to swim in!), the remarkable rocks for climbing, and a huge seal colony for smelling.
After Kangaroo Island, I took the Oz Experience bus down the coast to Melbourne via the Great Ocean Road. It’s a stretch of coastline I’ve been wanting to see ever since I got here. It completely lives up to its name, and I think that this, along with the Big Sur highway in California are probably two of the best road trips in the world.
I fly to Singapore on Sunday, and I’m finding myself really looking forward to it. I’ve loved Australia, but it’s time to move on to the next phase of this trip.
