When Miss Hoggy Leaves Home has turned ONE!! My very first post was just a mere sentence though, and Miss Hoggy was just my dreaming alter-ego. Then, I was only dreaming of collecting stories from every part of this world. Despite the fact that I’ve started, I’m hardly a tenth there yet. Regardless, I took the chance to celebrate Miss Hoggy’s one-year-old earlier last week by soaking up the summer sun in Beaufort and the beautiful shoreline of North Carolina.

And that was what our dearest travel bug love to tell us, coming on a home stretch of an adventure. Reality is, every road trip has an end, despite what we wished it to be: an endless dream.

What’s in the box this time round, on the road trip to beat the travel bug? It’s time to leave the hustle and bustle of the busy city of Melbourne, and hit the road to find a hidden surprise, on the most travelled and most popular road in Victoria. You guess it. It’s the Great Ocean Road, with a twist.

― Jules Verne, Around the World in Eighty Days
The chance of travelling all seemed lost when Miss Hoggy arrived home. Determined to fight the Avioleavitis bug, ever the wanderlust, she decided to pack up again, towing some friends along, and went on a small road trip. All road trip needed a guideline: budget, destination, attraction. But none were more important than the Asian’s favourite: FOOD. And Melbourne CBD, a melting pot of culture, is a good start to explore all things food.
One thing that she did miss overseas was the burning taste of chilli, in its variation. So it’s no wonder that her first few days of this road trip were intensely hot. Literally.
Warning: Flamingly delicious food to follow. Continue reading “Around Victoria in 10 days (Part 1)”
