As well as being one of the most spectacular roads in the world, the Great Ocean Road is also the largest war tribute: built between 1919 and 1932, it is dedicated to soldiers who died during the First World War.

And after a short detour to Cape Otway National Park, to see koalas for the first time, here we are, in front of these imposing limestone pillars, a true icon of Australia.

The Twelve Apostles (actually there are only eight left) up to 20 million years ago were attached to the cliffs, but waves and wind corroded them, creating natural arches and pillars of up to 45 meters high, true masterpieces of nature.

I was breathless three times during this trip to Australia, this was the first: impossible not to get excited, impossible not to be stunned and not feel small, in front of this incredible nature.

The show at sunset, then, is suggestive also because of the sun: the rocks change color creating a play of light and, in a few seconds, changes the appearance of the whole landscape.

I try to absorb at least a small part of all that power, in silence, amazed and happy to see that show with my own eyes.

I turn around, is not far from me, is taking a picture to send to his wife and son. I smile, he is visibly excited: nature has struck again.
