Road Trip Story #1- Great Ocean Road
There is nothing (NOTHING, I say) that I love more than a road trip. Preferably one with a very flexible itinerary, and accompanied by someone I love (and can not only survive, but enjoy being confined to a car with for days on end). As I seem to be falling into the pattern of doing various series of photos here on my blog, I feel that this is a series that needs to be included. So, presenting the first photo in a whole road trip series: The Great Ocean Road, Australia. This particular road winds its way along the Southeast Coast of Victoria, Australia, and runs approx. 151 miles long (243 kilometers). I didn’t drive the full length, but did make it as far as what’s pictured above, The Twelve Apostles. The Twelve Apostles (an amazing road trip destination, if I do say so myself), is a collection of free standing limestone stacks, just off the coast, directly next to the Great Ocean Road. While there were originally actually twelve of them grouped together, only eight currently remain standing. Not only is the coast itself breathtaking, but these towering stacks reveal all of the different colors and layers that comprise the make up of the gorgeous cliffs. The beaches themselves are completely unreachable by people, and therefore gloriously untouched, making it feel like one of the most majestic, isolated, and inspiring places I’ve ever seen.
