At the getaway of what would be one of my most beautiful experiences

The Great Ocean Road… A legendary road that I was dreaming of doing for so many years!  And here I am, standing in Torquay for what will be one of the highlights of my trip!  Imagine… Nature’s drama unfolding itself as I drove along the dramatic coastline with its unspoiled green landscapes, pretty villages & stunning vistas, revealed at every turn.  I had the chance to share this experience with Nis, a Malaysian woman from Kuala Lumpur who joined me for this trip.  Our drive brought us to beautiful sights & towns such as Lorne & Apollo Bay.  This part of the coast reminded me a little bit to the Croatian coast actually… a road winding its way to stunning vantage points offering fantastic vista’s with a blue ocean, rising cliffs,…  Never thought the most beautiful part was yet to come!

Nis, Pat, Faith, Janet & myself... lovely encounter !

Nis, Pat, Faith, Janet & myself… lovely encounter !

At the spectacular site of the 12 Apostles, Nis & myself met 3 lovely women… Pat, Faith & Janet.  They were 3 sisters of 5, all above 75 and still together!  They all lived in Newcastle, New South Wales and were here on a trip as well.  We shared some lovely conversations and continued our journey after a while for more spectacular sceneries…

Once in Warrnambool I was astonished by all this natural beauty.   I can honestly say that this dramatic coastline, especially the part in Port Campbell National Park, was one of the most beautiful sceneries I’ve ever laid eyes on !
