Daniel | The Great Ocean Road

If I had a say I would name one of Australia’s most famous roads ‘Magnificent Motorbike-Heaven Countless-Spectacular-Views Unbelievably Blue Ocean Road’!!  But I guess that would be too long for many purposes. If it was printed on a map, it would read in very tiny letters, all across from Adelaide to Melbourne: “Magnificent Motorbike… ah it’s too hard. Let’s take a different route.”  And if bike riders wanted to meet up, they would have to say: “Hey mate, see you Sunday for lunch on the MMHCSVUBO Road.” And the road would not become famous easily either. Imagine people on the other side of the globe going: “Hey I heard about a really great place in Australia, it’s called Wrmfptlbrmft or something. I don’t how to pronounce it, and I cannot ask for where it is when I get there.”

So I guess Great Ocean Road is a better name although it does not by far do justice to its beauty.

    Lange Namen sind relativ ;-)
