After spending my last evening in Melbourne with an old friend and his family chatting, laughing and sampling some of the best Croatian liqueur I've ever had (the only Croatian liqueur I've ever had), I headed west to begin the Great Ocean Road. Picked up my car, and unlike my first day in Tasmania, it was quite easy to drive (like riding a bike eh?)
I decided to kick the trip off with a first night in Torquay (the beginning - or the end, depending on where you start - of the Great Ocean Road.) This is what I think of when I think of a California surf town (only in Oz) and home to Rip Curl and Quicksilver. Just dropped my bags off at my AirBnb and going to head to the beach. Leaving a map of the Great Ocean Road to see where I will be heading over the next week!
