Heading west

Friday 1 May 2009

I left Melbourne on my way to Adelaide. It’s going to take about 6 days to get there and on today I will drive to Apollo Bay. Today I will start to drive on the so called Great Ocean Road. But before I get there, I first need to get out of Melbourne. And that wasn’t easy. Again, Tom Tom failed to help me and the local road works didn’t help either. After quite some time, I managed to get out and to get on the right track.

Back on the big island

Wednesday 29 April 2009

Well, if you have looked at the dates of the previous posts you probably have found that the blog is way behind by now. It’s been quite difficult to keep it up to date and over the last week or so I just couldn’t keep up.

A long drive

Today I will have to drive back to Hobart. It’s going to be a long day, since there’s a long and winding road between Strahan and Hobart.

It’s already quite busy here; there’s a boat leaving for a cruise on the river and some people have booked a nice flight over this area. That must be good fun, since there’s no wind and the cloud level is quite high.

Walking, walking and walking

Sunday 26 April 2009

Guess what I did today. Yep you are right: I did a whole lot of walking.

The weather is not too bad this morning. It’s dry, about 10 degrees and the wind is quite strong which makes it really cold. But by adding enough layers of insulation, that problem can be solved. At 9.00 the visitor centre opens and the weather forecast for today is available. It’s as clear as my coffee. It can rain, it can snow, there’s going to be a lot of wind. Okay… Let’s just start walking and when the weather gets bad, I can always turn around.
