its just another day and a half before we fly on our trip.
we have travelled together before, but not for so long, no for so far. we've been to taipei (6days) bkk (manymanytimes) krabi (sun-blissed) and finally a year end trip that we've been looking forward to.
there will be road trips, bed and breakfast stay, loads of food and wine, exploration.
pre trip, we realised we had to get visas at the very last minute. thank god we are away from work from today and we could afford the time to pop by the qantas office to settle all that.
there was a last minute change in the iteneriy as i went through it again last night. we decided to get to phillips island first, so we could get the car from the city in the morning that day (with my aunt giving us a ride there) and then make our way from there. we'll spend the day there and then the next day, we'll head to Yarra Valley and Dandenongs, where i heard nothing but wine goodness. there is a hot air balloon option, but oh my, is it expensive!! it went out the window. we might or might not stay overnight, depending on whether we can finish everything in a day. next up would be the great ocean road ride to see the twelve apostle and that would take prob 2 days and we'll stay over appollo bay, a nice cozy place with bed and breakfast with the ocean calling you awake. next, we'll drive to the grampians to catch those lazy koala bears and kangaroos. and on our way back, we'll stop by sovereign hill, a gold mining little town. you know, do touristy stuff. the rest of the itinery is free and easy, mostly spent on town, and queen victoria market.
still unconfirmed is sparing some time for mornington, which i havent got the time to read up and decide if its worth the time.
so with that said, we havent got to packing yet!! i know, we are terrible. we'll get to that tonight.
