An Australian Road TripAs some of you may know, @Arryn and I are in Australia for Supanova in Melbourne and Gold Coast. We have some down time in between each event, and our friends at @Hanabee have been taking great care of us. Yesterday (Monday), Cameron from Hanabee, Arryn, and I left around 1:30 PM to drive down south to stay in an Air B&B that was in the middle of nowhere Australia. It was quite the adventure. Here's how it went down:

Cameron picked us up, and we left Melbourne for our journey to the Great Ocean Road … even though we took the fast route, and would end up driving through the wilderness, and would take the "scenic" ocean road drive back.

About 2 hours into the drive, we found ourselves in the middle of no-where Australia. We spent about 45 minutes on the windiest, most terrifyingly beautiful path, surrounded by trees. mountains, and golden hour. Cam off-handedly mentioned we should see if there was a “petrol” station nearby, not realizing he asked because he was running dangerously low. We decided to pull over to ask a man working in his toolshed where the closest station may be. He said that the closest one may be 20 miles away, and we had about a tank left for 10 kilometers. Overhearing this, he said then nearest petrol station would be in his truck. Luckily, this man we happened to pull over to ask had a jug in his car full of gasoline, which would end up saving us from a very potentially scary experience.

We made it to our destination about an hour later- a house on Red Johanna Road. This place looked unreal - when you looked anywhere surrounding the house, it looked like a desktop background. No photo or video would or could do it justice. Rolling green hills as far as the eye can see, and not a single ounce of civilization. Truly secluded,

We dropped our things and glanced at the Guest Handbook for suggestions on how to get liquor and food. We drove up towards a town called Lavers Hill, hit up a shop for wine, and then a Tavern for fish and chips. We left to drive home, and on the way, saw a REAL LIFE KOALA just standing on the side of the road. Not running, not crawling on something, just standing there, as if waiting for us to arrive. After screeching our car to a halt, screaming for a full 2 minutes while trying to take a photo, Tyrone the Koala (that's what we named him) proceeded to slowly climb over the road barrier back to it’s home.

We returned home, and at this time it was night. Looking up, I’ve never seen more stars in all my life. It almost looked like a clusters of freckles. We drank wine while watching Game of Thrones, then slept.

This morning, we woke up, had tea on our porch with the world's most amazing view, then left to get more gas and breakfast nearby. Thus began our drive along the "Great Ocean Road" - a drive on the South East coast of Australia. It was about a 4 hour drive of more windy roads, but with gorgeous ocean, mountains, and greenery. Every turn you took was more beautiful than the last.

We then decided to stop at a rest stop because someone (me) has a small bladder or something. The restroom was located in a trailer park type area. We walked around in there, and on the way out, saw ANOTHER FUCKING KOALA just walking. It climbed up a small tree (about 4 feet high) and started eating leaves. We got right up close to it and took about 70000 pictures and videos, and one of the locals there told us we could pet it, as long as we were gentle and not intimidating. We did. He was so soft.

After leaving, we continued our drive back to Melbourne.

It was an amazing experience, and was so cool to get to experience that side of Australia. 10/10 would do again and again and again (maybe minus the part where we almost ran out of gas, though).

PS- I'll be posting an album of photos here shortly.
PPS- we're still in Aus, heading to Gold Coast this weekend for Supanova! Hope to see you guys there!

Morning VentIt's rare to find a lot of assholes in Austin. Most people in this city are super nice and friendly. The only exception is when people are in their cars- they all turn to assholes.

This morning, I stop by the Starbucks on my way to work. It's usually pretty busy, so parking can sometimes be frustrating. I drove around the lot a few times, and saw someone pulling out. I drive up, and put my blinker on to wait for them to finish backing out. Meanwhile, another car comes from a different intersection and starts waiting (I'm to their left, and the car backing out is to their right). I think "oh, they're probably just waiting to turn". So after the car leaves, I pull in. I then hear a honk, and look over to see the guy in the drivers seat flip me off.

First off, I hate when people flip each other off in traffic/whatever driving situation. It's pointless. I brush it off, since I was in the right, and I guess they just didn't see me waiting.

I then go into the Starbucks, and about 15 seconds later, the couple from the car walk in. The woman (probably about 45 or 50) comes up behind me...
Her: "So I guess you didn't see us waiting for that spot??"
Me: "I was there with my blinker on when you pulled up. I assumed you were waiting to turn. But look, you made it here a few seconds after me, so..."
Her: "We knew you would have that attitude."
Me: "Well isn't it a bit immature to flip someone off for a parking spot?"
Her: "So you DID see us!"
Me: "Yeah, I saw you pull up after I had already been waiting, and after you honked I looked to see you flipping me off."
Her: *silent* *mumbling something under her breath*
Her Husband: *Not even making eye contact even though he was the one who flipped me off*

I ordered my coffee and left.

People suck sometimes.
