There seem to be some of the same cars in this country; they are just known by different names. We see a lot of BMWs around too, but I have no idea how people afford those. At this point, we don't plan on buying a car. With the discount Zack can get through Avis, it seems to make more sense to rent a car on the weekends when we need it. The public transportation options are plentiful and easy; they just don't go to the ocean for surfing!
These are a few of the fun signs we've seen so far. One is out by the pier in St. Kilda-maybe the bridge gets slippery when it's wet? The other was along the Great Ocean Road drive; I'm still waiting to see a real kangaroo in the wild! Anyway, it's raining/hailing right now and cold outside, so I'm glad I'm not out there driving and instead am curled up in my housecoat catching up on e-mails and reading a good book. This is the life!
