The Time We Didn’t Really Wine Taste in Australian Wineries

11 May , 2015   Gallery

This series of Australia 2013 is finally coming to an end. Even if you’re not tired of reading it, I’m a bit tired of writing it and am about ready to start writing about another trip! For the last entry of the series, I will briefly talk about our little experience with Australian wineries. I’ve […]

The Time I Tried to Find Penguins Using Red Underwear (Australian Wildlife Sightings)

6 May , 2015   Gallery

Generally speaking, it would be extremely difficult to go to Australia and not see wildlife. Thus, even though I had some objectives to the wildlife sightings there, we didn’t actually plan our trip around the wildlife sights. Our list of animals that we saw in the wild were limited and my dead-set goals were to […]

The Time I Watched Bull Seals Fight [Kangaroo Island]

29 Apr , 2015   Gallery

If there is anything that Kangaroo Island is not short of, it’s wildlife. It was unfortunate that on our first day on the Island, the “wildlife” we did see were mostly cooped up in a farm, but on the second day, we did get to see Australia Sea Lions in their natural habitats. On the second […]

The Time I Got Kicked by a Kangaroo [Kangaroo Island]

22 Apr , 2015   Gallery

If there were a survey for the game Family Feud on the topic “Things in Australia,” I guarantee that the ones worth the most points would be “Kangaroos” “Koalas” and…well actually I couldn’t think of a third, maybe “spiders” or “surfers” or, as Waffles puts, “poisonous s***” So when I found out that Waffles was going to Australia for work in 2013, I […]

The Time We Really Went Down Under [Mount Gambier]

12 Apr , 2015   Gallery

For our Australian 2013 Road Trip from Melbourne to Adelaide to Kangaroo Island, we made stops on the Great Ocean Road  and then Mount Gambier before we hit Adelaide. The reason why we picked Mount Gambier wasn’t just because I really really wanted to sleep in a jail built in the 1800s but because there were actually a […]

The Time We Drove Down the Great Ocean Road

5 Apr , 2015   Gallery

The first time I heard the word “sublime” was in first year British English Literature Survey class where my prof spent a long time trying to explain to us dumb first-years, in as simple language as possible, what British Romantic poets were trying to convey in their poems when they encounter greatness. She used Niagara Falls as […]

The Time We Stayed Overnight in a Jail (Roadtrip Stays)

30 Mar , 2015   Gallery

In March 2013, Waffles and I took a trip to Australia, which included a pretty long road trip. In total, we stayed in about 7 different places over the course of 12 days, varying from hotels, motels, apartment hotels, hostels, Air BnB, to crashing  at a coworker’s aunt’s house. I’ve summarized below all the places we stayed in […]

The Time I had a Panic Attack in the Rainforest [Erskine Falls]

20 Mar , 2015   Gallery

After staying four days in Melbourne, we were ready to hit the road. Our goal was to drive through the Great Ocean Road to Adelaide, then take a Ferry to Kangaroo Island. The plan was to take our time. Our first stop was the Split Point Light House in Aireys Inlet, which is about 1h30m drive from […]

The Time I Wandered (Mostly) Aimlessly for 4 Days [Melbourne]

12 Mar , 2015   Gallery

In 2013, Waffles had a worktrip to Melbourne and I decided I’d tag along and we planned a roadtrip around it. But before the roadtrip, I decided that I had wanted to spend some time in Melbourne to discover the city a little. I had about four days there on my own while he had to […]

The Time We Spent a Week Eating Out of a Cooler

5 Mar , 2015  

So here’s the thing – at the beginning of 2013, my boyfriend had the opportunity to travel to Australia for work. I was jealous. I was so jealous that I decided I was going to buy a ticket and follow him there whether he likes it or not…thankfully he didn’t mind. The problem was, the plane […]
