Australia has been #1 on my travel list for as long as I can remember, so I'm so happy to finally publish my first post from my 3-week Australian excursion. I'm not sure how my infatuation with this country began, but years ago I remember seeing a picture of the Twelve Apostles, all rugged and majestic surrounded by crashing waves. In recent years, I have followed countless Aussie fashion and travel bloggers and learned the entire country is full of natural wonder and the culture perfectly embodies a beachy, lust-for-life lifestyle. When Dayle moved to the Gold Coast to finish school, I jumped at the opportunity to finally visit the land down under... I spent time in Sydney, with Dayle on the Gold Coast, and in Melbourne. While in Melbourne, I knew I had to take the drive along the Great Ocean Road to see the Twelve Apostles (in addition to Loch Ard Gorge, Great Otway National Park, little beachside towns, and random unnamed breathtaking lookout points)... as hopefully portrayed in these photos, the sights were better than I could have even imagined. The Great Ocean Road drive is an absolute must-do for anyone planning an Aussie trip.
