Farm work has been complete --- THANK GOD!! Although met some awesome people and got some random experiences of vine training, mulberry packing, apple and pear picking I have now got the 88 days of farm work signed off so next thing is to submit it to immigration and hope they accept my application.
Coming to the end of this year visa and it has been a great year but all good things have to come to the end! So flight booked for 25 January and land on 26 January got to hope that they do not get cancelled because of the snow in England that I have heard so much bout. Hoping to stay with my dad for while then head up to Lincoln after so I will repost with more information when I am heading up north.
For my last high in Australia I decided to go down the Great Ocean Road which is around 300kms long. But the roads are very bendy so takes long time to drive but the best drive of Australia the views are just out of this world. There is rainforest one side of you and beautiful beaches and rocks etc the other side. Went to 12 Apostles which is the main attraction to go see however there are several lookouts and rainforest walks etc that can do including London Bridge, where some people got stuck when some of the rocks caved in few years back, glad no one got hurt! & the Otway Fly treetop walk which is walkways going from ground level to above the tallest tree within middle of rainforest! Spent 4 nights in Apollo Bay which is middle of Great Ocean Road so could use it as a base whilst I went exploring.
Been Bush fires in Australia as been days without rain then hot weather with wind - dangerous. so seen a lot of total fire ban days recently and severe ratings on charts. Different culture to think can I go to ..... place oh wait got to check fire danger first! But obviously very important to do so.
Last week here so going to make it best week in Australia! Been creating some scrapbooks with all my adventures in so I dont bore people with over 6000 photos!!
