Anyway, we are going to share about our student’s road trip again.

This is a road trip story which these 4 students decided to do from Gold Coast to Sydney and Melborne in Yoda’s little Mitsubishi Mirage.

[speech_bubble type=”std” subtype=”L1″ icon=”kojiro.png” name=”Kojirou”] Musashi, the dryer is not working.[/speech_bubble]
I woke up with Kojiro’s voice. I was still in a dream and repeated the words….dryer..dryer…dryer…
What!? Dryer is not working!?
We only had a pair of clothes so it was a big problem.
I jumped out from the bed and went to the laundry room with Kojiro.
There were 2 dryers at the top and bottom. The top one was already working.
Kojiro said she inserted the coin into the machine and pressed the bottun but it didn’t work.
The insert place was only one place. And there were the buttons of Upper and Lower.
Maybe she did…..
[speech_bubble type=”std” subtype=”L1″ icon=”musashi.png” name=”Musashi”]Did you press this button? [/speech_bubble]
asked Kojiro and pointed “Upper” button.
[speech_bubble type=”std” subtype=”L1″ icon=”kojiro.png” name=”Kojirou”]Oh, yeah. I did it.[/speech_bubble]
We bursted into laughing.
We put 4 more dollars and the machine worked!
Kojiro was very kind to put extra time for upper machine!
It was such a peaceful morning. But we only had one more hour til check out.
We never finished our packing for an hour. And it was raining.
Today’s plan was going to great ocean road.
We knew it was going to be not so good view when it was raining.
In the cold rainy day, was it going to be worth to go there?
Our lazy mind went through in our brain.
[speech_bubble type=”std” subtype=”L1″ icon=”musashi.png” name=”Musashi”]Why don’t we stay here one more night?[/speech_bubble]
It was really comfortable cavin here.
But we decided to stay at the tent tonight so Yoda and Kojiro didn’t say Yes easily.
Ok, wait!! Why don’t we sightseeing in the city and then stay at the tent!?
We started to seach sightseeing places in the city but we couldn’t find any other good place to go.
We did so much yesterday so it was going to waste of our time.
Yoda finally said,
[speech_bubble type=”std” subtype=”L1″ icon=”yoda.png” name=”Yoda”]Shall we stay here one more night?[/speech_bubble]
We went to the reception and asked them if we could stay another night.
Luckily, our cavin was availbale so we extended our stay here.
We noticed the rain has stopped around 13.00.
We quicly got ready and tried to get to the beginning of Great Ocean Road.
The entrance was called Torquay. It was only 20 minutes by car but it started raining again.
We arrived Torquay beach and saw a lot of surfers in the cold ocean.
When we checked the map, there was a place called Memorial Arch. It was 30 minutes from there so we drove there.
It was getting look like Great Ocean Road. It would be fantastic if it didn’t rain.
We got to the Arch, it was a photo spot for travellers.
We couldn’t finish drinig Great Ocean Road but headed back.
On the way back, we visited Narana Aboriginal Cultural Centre.
There were Aborininal Art, care and an event when it was on season.
The customers were only us. Lol
When we carried on, we found a nice garden.
Entranse fee was just only 2 dollars and there were Emus. Only I paid and entered the garden.
Other two didn’t come with me because they could see Emus from the outside.
When I got into the garden, an Emu went passing by me.
It worths of it!!!
I carried on and it was much bigger than I thought.
I saw the kangaroos? Or wallabees too!!! They were so cute!
It would be good to relax in this garden, but I had to go back to them.
By the way, there was a lot of poos on the floor. Please be aware.
When I went back to them, Kojiro looked so worried.
I asked her why?
Kojiro thought that this garden was very small but Musashi hadn’t come back.
Kojiro saw a sign saying aware of wild snakes and do not leave the track. Kojiro thought Musashi have left the track.
She was wondering if she should pay $2 and go to look for her…but was a waste of money to pay $2? Kojiro was wondering what she should do.
Oi!!!! Is my life not worth more than the entrance fee!?!?
But I appriciate that she was worried about me and it was true that I chased after the Kangaroos to get off the track.
Yoda was happy because he bought a new Kangaroo leather wallet at the gift shop.
In total, this garden was a good to place to go.
We finished our sightseeing and went back to our caravan.
Yoda wanted to have a 100% beef burger but Kojiro did not feel well however she still made good dinner for us. Thank you, Kojiro.
It was the last night of our travels but we spent it like the same way as usual.
I wish we could be together forever!
Me and Kojiro are going back to Gold Coast tomorrow and said good bye to Yoda.
