    Great Ocean Road Day 2

    November 29, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 11 °C

    On our second day driving the Great Ocean Road it was mich more cloudy than the day before but it still was pretty amazing. I didn‘t take many photos or videos because it didn‘t look good on the camera (and because of a concrete mixer that didn‘t want to leave us alone) but here are some expressions.Read more

    The Grampians

    November 28, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    The next day we took a break of driving the Great Ocean Road and went into the Grampians Nationalpark. It was a bit rainy and cloudy but it was still a great experience hiking in these mountains. Nothing spectacular happened so I don‘t have much to say other than it was beautiful as quiet.🥰

    Great Ocean Road Day 1

    November 27, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    After we did a fast drive to Adelaide we started our trip back to Melbourne over the Great Ocean Road and it‘s the most spectacular thing we did. The first day was full of tourist sightseeing. We visited all the tourist attractions such as the „Twelve Apostles“. We kept driving 5-30 minutes between every attraction.Read more

    Melbourne

    November 22, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ☁️ 14 °C

    Linisa and I spent our first day in Melbourne with relaxing in the pool of the caravan park because 40°C was just too hot to walk around in the city.
    On our second day we explored the city.
    Melbourne is so beautiful and full of graffiti. The most beautiful street was „AC/DC lane“.
    Our evening consisted of laying in the park and listening to musicians doing soundchecks for the Melbourne Music Week.Read more

    The way down to Melbourne

    November 15, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

    On our way to Melbourne we stopped at Minnamurra Beach, the Kiama Blowhole and Jervis Bay.
    In Minnamurra is a River that ends in the sea which is said to look really beautiful but we didn‘t find the actual place so we only walked along the beach.
    The Kiama Blowhole is a hole in the cliffs through which water gets catapulted upwards when waves crash at the cliffs.
    In Jervis Bay are said to be the whitest and most beautiful beaches of the world.

    Day 3&4 with the boys

    November 11, 2019 in Australia ⋅ 🌙 14 °C

    On day 3 we drove to a wildlife park. We saw many fascinating animals such als multiple snakes, red pandas, crocodiles, meerkats and many more but the stars were the kangaroos & wallabies and the wombat of course! We spent most of our time feeding the wallabies and kangaroos and they were much to sweet. But my personal highlight was seeing a cheetah run around his enclosure and playing with itself.
    Oh, and we saw our biggest fear again, a cossowary. We ended our day by introducing Quinoa to the boys and were surprised they actually liked it!
    The next and last day we decided to spend in the Blue Mountains. So we drove there all 3 hours just to drive back to Sydney because everything was closed because of all the bushfires that were raging in Australia. Back in Sydney we spent the rest of our day at the beach and said goodbye in the evening after eating together.
    Those were some fun, interesting but very, VERY chaotic 4 days.🤗

    Day 2 with the boys

    November 10, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ☁️ 17 °C

    This morning we made our way back to Royal Nationalpark. Our destination today: the famous Figure 8 Pools! Unfortunately we didn‘t see them.☹️ Even though it was low tide they were still pretty flooded and the waves hitting the cliffs were brutal that day. We sat there for a few hours and saw people getting washed away multiple times. Happily nothing happened to them except for scrapes. The hike down there led us climbing over wet rocks and the way back was the steepest we did so far but it was worth it even though we couldn’t see nor swim in the pools!Read more

    Day 1 with the boys

    November 9, 2019 in Australia ⋅ 🌙 15 °C

    Our day started by waiting together with Rafael for one hour in their Hostel because Till was Not ready showering.
    Then we took off down the coast to the Royal National Park and decided to do a Cliff walk to „Eagle Rock“. Can you spot it?
    It was really fun for all of us, except Rafael. As we would find out, because he told us what felt like every 5 minutes, he doesn‘t really like walking. But playing soccer for 5 hours sure is something completely different!⚽️
    We had some great talks again and ended our day by eating wraps and figuring out how to fit 4 people into our little Tony. It actually worked! Wasn‘t really comfortable for all of us but it worked!

    Cronulla

    November 8, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    While we spent some lazy days in Sydney, we planned to go on a trip together with 2 guys we know from school that are in Australia too. To pass the hours we had to wait for them to come back from work to plan the next few days we walked around the peninsula of Cronulla.
    The day ended with fun talks but less of a plan. The plan consisted of us saying that we would come back the next day to pick them up.
    Let‘s hope that everything works out! 😂

    Dorrigo National Park

    November 3, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    On our way down the coast, back to Sydney we decided to stop for one day and drive inland to Dorrigo National Park. It felt really good being back in the mountains. We decided to do a 2 hour return hike to Crystal Shower Falls. Unfortunately are all waterfalls pretty dried out this year because winter was dry but despite the little water that came out, the waterfall still was the most beautiful I‘ve ever seen.
    Our campground this day was located on a mountain with a 360° view onto the mountains. The best view we slept in by far.
    Also we got to know an Australian man named Blake who gifted us some wine and gave us many tips for travelling Australia and promised us to send us a list of places in South Australia that are more worth visiting than the tourist spots.
    Also he told us everything about his wife and how she was so adventurous before they got kids and how he is so proud of her because she gets more adventurous over time now that they also have grandchildren. She even drives motorcycles again!
    No, he was really sweet. ☺️
