#3//The Great Ocean Road trip


We started off our week of fun at a great Australia Day party in Lameroo with Nat's uncle Stuie and Stuie's friends. I witnessed rum being drunk straight through a bugle and I don't know if this is typical Australia Day antics but I like their style. The next morning we set off from Lameroo to reach our first destination: Grampians National Park.

Adelaide and Lameroo are off the map to the left. The little red dots show our route along the Great Ocean Road to Melbourne

Apollo Bay/ friendly parrots near Mariner's Lookout



Thanks so much to Stuie for a fantastic week. We followed the route all the way to Melbourne where we spent a few days, although after five nights camping under the stars our 18-person dorm room just didn't quite cut it (not to mention the unforgiving soul below Nat on the bunk-bed who suffered from severe flatulence. Nat maintains it was the worst smell he's ever smelt in his life. #hostellife)

And I leave you with a video of Nat cooling off...
