A Little Detour

📸 — Great Ocean Road & Ballarat, Australia

While we were in Nicaragua, we met an Aussie couple traveling for 6 months. They were from Melbourne and told us if we had the chance, we had to go drive the Great Ocean Road.

The Great Ocean Road is an Australian National Heritage and a 243 kilometres (151 mi) stretch of road along the south-eastern coast of Australia. Back in 1919, it was built by returning soldiers who dedicated their work to the ones killed during World War I.

It is beautiful road that winds side-to-side along the ocean and briefly touches the mainland outback. We saw wild koalas, kangaroos and tons of birds along the trail and ended our trip with a short visit to Ballarat where the gold rush struck back in the 1900s. There was more gold found in Victoria than Canada, Alaska and California’s gold rushes combined!!

In Ballarat, we got to enjoy great company on a friends farm Marc & Michelle, with their kids and 60+ miniature ponies!

We also got serious with the meat festival and passed out from food-coma by 10:30pm.

Our last stop was the Berlin Bar — where you have to choose what side of the bar to drink on…
