Hear the thunder from down under part deux (II)

Before we continue through the rest of the adventure that was Oz. I am going to share more pictures of our morning frolic with the roos.  The two pictures I posted previously were really unimpressive, plus I didn’t tell you that we saw them at Lysterfield National Park. Although some of you may run among the wild roos often, I certainly do not and I think a few more amateur pictures will be sorta fun for you to look at, and perhaps better illustrate how TOTALLY COOL it was to say good morning to Oz that day.

Roos say: Peek-a-boo who foreigner??

Ok so back where to where the first post left off… I had fun hanging out with the koala, en-route to Phillip Island, where Janey spent many a summer living it up. We however, were going there to try

and catch the penguin parade. Sadly, we didn’t get a chance to see the penguins for tickets sell out quite quickly and we really lagged on getting to the box office. Oh well… guess we’ll just have to go back to Oz! We did manage to have some fun though, which included eating fish & chips… one of my favorite indulgences when I travel. Have you ever noticed that everywhere you go, they always have fish & chips?? I am determined to eat fish & chips… everywhere I go. I know, glamorous right?!

NOM NOM!! Fish & Chips!!!

As I mentioned in the first post, I normally travel alone, and without a set agenda. Usually I like to see, do, & eat the quintessential things that are to be seen, done & had at the specific location, the rest is just adventures. However, being that a) I was not traveling alone, and b) I actually had purpose in my destination- visiting Janey. I got to spend time doing just “regular things” like having Sunday lunch with her family, and going for a night out on the town.

Top Chef!

Our Top Chef! Jane's dad 🙂

By the way,  if you want some very refreshing Victoria wine… get some of this:

yeah, this was delicisouly refreshing!

Our night out on the town, in St. Kilda, where Dayton was hit-on by a French Man, grown men played silly drinking games, and where I discovered the drink I now call the “Ideas” (or the “Brenda” if you try to get it at the PL Bar & Grill across from the Cerimone studio!):

Doing shots of tequila through a straw... this obvisouly wasn't the first drink of the night!

  1. Probably should say that Ben and his friend were not the gay french guy. Was that dude French? I mean he was rude, just did not put 2 and 2 together. Sad thing is i do not remember a tequila shot through a straw. Just the really bad “put something in it” drinks
