Slow Travel Australia
“Do you come from a land Down Under?
Where women glow and men plunder?
Can’t you hear, can’t you hear the thunder?
You better run, you better take cover.”
Australia is a country that is on almost every traveler’s bucket list. Why is that? Well, we wanted to find out for ourselves and headed Down Under after our travels in New Zealand.
Our first days in Melbourne started out very well. We rented a small room in one of Melbourne’s suburbs because something more centrally located is very expensive.
From here we wanted to plan the upcoming months, look into the golf courses we wanted to play, and search for the perfect campervan that would take us on our great Australian road trip.
One of the first things we realized in Australia is that the Aussies love abbreviations. And they love to shorten words, which sometimes led to misunderstandings. Avo in the avro? Ah, what?
