One of the reasons why I started this blog, was to share travel tips, itineraries, experiences and travel photos with the hopes of inspiring and helping first timers to Europe plan out their trip. Which I am still aspiring to be able to fulfil in the future. Because I am having a 'writer's block' at the moment (though I have never been a writer to begin with) on how to write how to and what to blog entries, I have decided to start a series of 'Photo Diary' to be able to share our photos minus the pressure of a real write up.
The Lindenderry at Red Hill is just an hour's drive from Melbourne. Located in the hinterland of the most charming Mornington Peninsula. The moment you drive into the estate and look on the left side, you will be greeted with a dreamy view of the estate, which instantly transports you a world away. The carefully cultured grapevines, rows of perfect cone shaped pine trees and rose bushes that leads to the hotel's entrance gives you that European country side feel.
The Great Ocean Road is about a 240km stretch or approximately a five hour drive of winding coastlines at the lowest tip of Australia facing the Southern Ocean. A destination popular for 1) road trips for its infinite views, 2) surfing for its ripping waves, 3) swim spots for its sandy beaches, 4) relaxing coastal towns and it's numerous cafes, 5) inland activities and 6) home to the iconic limestone stack formation - The Twelve Apostles, just to name a few.
I did not have much expectations of Milan, aside from the known fact that it is the Fashion Capital of the World. Our Uber driver made that clear to us. Of course, he picked us up from the stazione looking sprezzatura in his black leather jacket, denim jeans, pointed dark brown leather shoes, black sunglasses and his shiny Mercedes Benz. Hello Rockstar!
