Take a trip to Victoria's high country in style

I'm a born and bred Melbournian. I've lived my entire life in the city, and have unfortunately, not travelled much of Australia. I mean, yeah, It's not to say that I haven't been anywhere. In short conversations with travellers from overseas, you really gain perspective on how much you (as a local) don't really explore your own backyard!

With that being said, a random call from a close friend came and here I am, driving a luxury 3-series BMW to Bonnie Doon (yeah I know! How cool is that name!). Two friends of his had recently purchased land in the area and he was going to go up to see them so I tagged along. And I'm glad I did. 

This was a rare block of time where I drove (Lachlan mostly hogged the wheel), but all I'm going to say is WOW! I've never really driven any modern luxury cards. It was exhilarating. The instant power was always there when you needed it but the plush interior made you sit back and enjoy the ride.

I'd love to see myself behind the wheel of something like this soon! German engineering, what more can I say?
