I love places that challenge the popular stereotypes that many people hold about Australia – the beach, the desert, the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge, and Uluru.
Weeaproinah is one of the wettest places in the state of Victoria. Although it’s very close to the coast, this locality at the end of the Otway Ranges boasts magnificent mountain ash rainforest that contrasts lush green foliage with tall, straight tree trunks. Birds and wildlife abound.
The Otway Fly is a treetop walk and/or zipline adventure through the forest, taking advantage of different levels and heights, and allowing visitors to experience different aspects of the Australian bush.
Again in Trivial Pursuit:
My brother: “What part of a man grows 12-15cm per year?”
Me: “It’s a lie!” followed by lots of inappropriate laughter.
Nobody else laughed.
It’s okay. I’m sure they were laughing on the inside.
Tonight, in a family Trivial Pursuit game, my brother asked: ‘What tool did astronomer Roger Thompson say is “fundamentally altering our view of the universe’?”
My answer: “Donald Trump.”
My brother: “Correct. AND the Hubble Telescope.”
My husband is spending today door-knocking and collecting in for Red Cross.
We met at the bakery for lunch, where he asked the baker for a donation.
A lady turned to him and asked what he was doing.
“He’s walking the streets to make money,” I said.
Everyone laughed, so I added, “… bet he would have made more if he’d borrowed my fishnets.”
It’s official. I’m hilarious.
