“Breathtaking” is the perfect adjective to describe my thoughts throughout my time travelling up The Great Ocean Road. Every corner we turned, every hill we climbed and the fresh air in our faces, we felt incredibly humbled to be where we were. It was exactly what I was expecting but better, and has thus far been one of the biggest highlights of Australia.
The following is a documentation of my three main highlights of our recent visit to Victoria.
Travelling has opened up a new space I never thought I had. I’ve had more space to breathe, to focus on a more positive mindset and it has given me the chance to reflect on what I really want out of my life in the future. I’ve said before, New Years Resolutions aren’t for me, more because I can’t stick to them to save my life, but 2018 has felt different to other years.
It’s a Friday night in Australia, right at the very end of The Great Ocean Road, I’ve just FaceTimed my family and I’m feeling quite down, like I’m craving something more from my year long adventure. I miss home an awful lot, and nothing can prepare you for how much you’ll miss the simpler life at home. At the moment it currently feels like we are waiting the days to end, it has been raining heavily during our time here, forcing our trips to different attractions to be cut short.
My dad has always stood by the fact that the world is turning into the films The Hunger Games and Elysium, but I’ve always shrugged it off as something not worth worrying about, to be honest, it isn’t something that I’ve even noticed. That’s until I experienced it first hand whilst waiting to watch Sydney’s New Year fireworks on New Years Eve.
