A lot has happened since my last post…another Term has finished at school (now almost two full terms!) and I have a few other Aussie adventures under my belt. However for this post I want to focus on just one of those.
A little background: Just over three years ago I met the reason why I have fallen in love with Australia so much…now to clarify I have always had a desire to visit Australia (it was a constant #1 on my list even as I got older and my travel wishes changed) but I was given an actual opportunity to visit after a chance meeting in March 2011. I was in Vegas and met a couple of Aussie blokes…now as the saying goes (“what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas”) I won’t go into detail but the end result was that I kept in contact and eventually made my way over to visit the land down under and was fortunate to see it less as a tourist and more as a true Aussie.
I actually visited a couple of times from July to August 2011 and eventually living here for a trial period in 2012…but my first trip out was the most memorable for so many reasons. One of these reasons being the first little town I visited…the little alpine town of Bright, in the state of Victoria…
I instantly fell in love. It was winter so it was cold (pfft..cold) but the sun was out and the town was cozy. We stayed in a fantastically cool accommodation called The Odd Frog which gave us a beautiful view of the country side…in a split second I felt like I was home…not the Australia I had always thought of (beaches and surfing…). This was true Victorian country and it was beautiful.
To celebrate an anniversary of sorts, SG and I booked in again three years to the date of our first visit. We stayed in the same Studio and enjoyed exploring the town I fell in love with (and yes, it was cold…much colder than the last time we visited…minus three in the mornings!!)
Anyway…here are some pictures of that adventure!
Who knows…maybe three years from now we will be able to celebrate again…
Thanks for reading!
