In just over 12 hours (if we are on time!) we will be hitting the road for Adelaide, South Australia! With a few stops on the way, of course. We will spend the first 2 nights in Ballarat visiting friends (from med) and their families, then we'll set off Tuesday morning for The Great Ocean Road. Hubs and I have been talking about doing this for years so we're finally making good on those plans. We'll probably try and get to the 12 Apostles on the first day, spend the night, then drive to Mt Gambier in SA on Wednesday and stay for the night, then on to Adelaide on Thursday.
These are fairly loose plans (as loose as I'm ever prepared to be) with no accommodation booked (but researched thouroughly and phone numbers at the ready) (yeah, I like to live life ON THE EDGE) and lots of great music to listen to on our journey. The only thing I'm ever so slightly concerned about to be honest, is Chanbe in the back seat on the winding roads. He has had a few power spews in the car so I'm just hoping he doesn't add another one to his "collection" (eew).
We'll stay in Adelaide, visiting friends and wineries and taking in the "City of Churches". We plan to leave the following Friday and head back east to Bendigo and stay with a friend for a couple of nights before we head to Melbourne. Why Melbourne and not Wang, you ask? Well Hubs has his 5 week placement at the Royal Women's in Melbourne, and I'll be spending most of that time in Brisbane.
So as you can see, the next 7 weeks will be quite busy for us, and we'll be away from our lovely home for that whole time. Can you understand when I say I'm looking forward to September?? We'll be bringing all sorts of technological paraphernalia on our trip, so I hope to still be blogging. See you on the road!
