Even though we went to bed soo late last night I still wanted to get up early so I could shower and get ready and look nice and shit because I knew a fair few photos would be taken and I sort of wanted to look nice..haha. So I got up at 7am..soo early. And because I got up Steph got up as she was sleeping on my floor..oopsy haha. Zippy and Ross went to pick up the rental car at 9 from Europcar and came back..I was ready to go at like 8:30am..but I can't say the same for the rest of the team! And some shit happened and Donna didn't end up coming, which sucked. We left at like 10am? Maybe.

We stopped in Geelong to grab some Hungry Jacks only to discover they discontinured the quadstack!! Booo. We got other food anyway and then I wanted to go say hello to my bosses twin brother and his wife as they own a chicken shop in Geelong.
yup..its 10:30am
We eventually found it, and discovered that you have to turn of Montreal crescent and drive past Canadian parade!! Soo we got photos with those signs. The first of many sign photo takings. Irene and Stathis brother were soo nice to us too! They gave us soo much free food, a full chicken, 2 salads and a big bag of chips for later! And I got a Smart Water. It was awesome, they are such nice people!!

We left there at like 12:30ish..a bit of a late start eh? Anywho. we decided to drive the back way to Port Campbell and do the Ocean Road on the way back..We go to Port Cambell and got some info and the boys went to the pub and got a beer..After this we made our way to the Loch Ard gorge and the Twelve apostles, which were both really amazing and the weather was soo good, a bit windy though.

There were heaps of tourists there too because of the nice weather. We took many many photos there before heading off. Because we got such a late start we didn't have time to do anything else but drive back to Lorne and then the next day to drive back out and do the rest of the Ocean Road.

We had so much fun driving, blasting gay music and singing and drinking, was soo much fun! We got to Lorne in the evening, maybe 6 or 7? Found our hostel and checked in, then got on the booze again. The hostel was really cute, but really quiet so we had to go out on the town hahaha. We chilled out in our room till maybe 9 or 9:30?? I can't remember. We then wandered down the the Lorne hotel..and there was a lineup!! In Lorne!!! And a cover charge!!! WHAT THE HECK.
canadian streets
couldn't believe it. We went in anway because there was nowhere else to go. They scanned our ID and took photos of us too..wierd. We went to buy drinks and freakin vodka oranged were 8 bucks..you can get it cheaper in Melbourne!! And there was a big sign at the bar saying 'No Shots'..LAME. then Ross and Zippy went to buy pints..and no pints after 9!! LAAAME!! And the pots were $4!! expensive. I smashed my drink and then asked more drink prices, freakin 9 bucks for a breezer. Soo lame. But again, nowhere else to go so we just drank or sorrows away haha. I took heaps of photos too, it was a lot of fun. We played some pool..I lost. booo. Some dancing went down. And all the girls in Lorne were really bitchy, what the heck?! Shocking bar but a great night. We left to try and find food at like 12:30am, the boys said they were gunna find food and bring it back to us at the hostel. We went back and I was out pretty much right away, I remember some commotion but not much..I'll explain more in tomorrows entry..
