Australia 2014: Photo-Travelogue Part 2/2

This is part 2 of my Aussie Photo-travelogue. By the way if you haven't read, or should i say browse through the first post (since it's all photos) you can go to this LINK. The Part 1 post is more of random photos of things i came across throughout the 3 weeks in Australia. As for Part 2, it is more on the activities that i did during my free time or off days. Normally what we do the night before we just google what are some of the places of interest to go to then we wake up early in the morning, have our breakfast and drive all the way to visit the place. Like literally drive 40km to the place...

Covered a couple of interesting places and saw the famous Australia Koala bear in real life, super lazy and not moving at all. Planned to drive up one of the more famous mountain (Mt. Archer) for a simple BBQ session and view the sunset but before that, we went to the supermarket to get all the BBQ essentials like charcoal, fire starter, food etc only to realized that the BBQ pits on the mountain are all electrical and are free to use. Waste money buying those charcoal and fire starters! Ended up taking turns to throw the charcoal to scare off those birds crowding around our BBQ pit, LOL

Driving around was not exactly boring because of the amazing scenery, once a while we will see a farm full of cows or horses, and there were only a couple of traffic lights along the way. During one of the last few days in Aussie, we drove to a famous beach and had fish and chips with a lot of seagulls staring at you. It was really peaceful and definitely not as hectic as in Singapore. It felt like everything slowed down and we had more time to do what we want. Then again in Australia, the malls and shop closes at like 5pm, which is like our 3pm?! Nothing much to do at night except for going Baskin' Robins for ice cream (fat die us! lol) or visit the slot machines at our hotel. Let's begin Part 2 of this travelogue!

Fast forward 3 weeks later, it's time to head to the airport to take a transit flight to Brisbane for our main flight back to Singapore via SQ. I was really looking forward to go home, somehow i miss my family and friends, i miss the food in Singapore, i miss my bed, but when i returned to work... i wished i was back in Australia instead. LOL Nevertheless it was a good experience and this marks the end of my 2 part Australia photo travelogue. I hope the next time i come to Australia would be for a holiday to Gold coast or Sydney where i can do a proper travelogue!
