The travels of a world-wide drifter, best viewed from your laptop
Category: Great Ocean Road, Australia
Now a major tourist draw located in Australia’s state of Victoria (think Melbourne), the road is about 150 miles long. It was originally funded as a way to put returning soldiers from WWI to work in sparsely populated areas and as a memorial to their war efforts, not to mention a way of connecting the various then isolated coastal towns.
To quote my friend, “They must have very smart animals around here!” You just have got to love signs like this that don’t say what they’re supposed to because of bad Grammar.
My friend immediately realized the unintended joke as we were driving down the road. I beg forgiveness as it was only a few weeks after my MASSIVE concussionmy MASSIVE concussion, so my brain wasn’t very quick on the uptick. I didn’t get it till he pointed it out.
(and why yes, I’m STILL backlogged … this happened almost a year ago)
The first big thing I spotted was via the window of a bus/coach that I was taking from Ballarat to Adelaide (it actually involved a one hour train ride and two connecting busses — bleh) … my friend in Ballarat, knowing my like of these sorts of things, had mentioned the bus might pass it… but the driver offered no warning and sadly the it only pit-stopped at the location in order to pick up new passengers, with no chance given to get off and take pictures… so this is the best one I managed to get (there were two others but they were all blurry because the bus was moving).
