      Holding onto acalades from the past and in desperate need of a refit. With new developments 'by the bay' underway, unfortunately this hostel will probably loose its view soon too.

      Woke up about 8:30am. Packed up the rest of our things then went and handed the key in to checkout. We then went and made breakfast.

      Went and gave the pot and plates back, then headed to the bust stop. Just missed the bus.
      Waited for the next bus to come along and got it to the next stop.

I managed to check in to the hostel as soon as I got back and was so pleased to have a proper shower and wash my hair! The shower cubicles had half naked men on the …

      Heading out of Melbourne we were up early and off to the airport for out 2.5 hour flight to the Hamilton Islands. The flight was not full and smooth and we landed at a small island airport in brilliant weather. The views were stunning, the water crystal blue and we had to board our ferry to take us to the mainland. The cruise on the boat was easy, …
