    Hong Kong for 3 days

    ... She was an amazing tour guide and took us to all the places that we would never have seen as tourists it was so interesting. We ate with all the locals at her favourite restaurant. It was fascinating hearing about how the Hong Kong people live. Basically they have a small room about 10' x 10' and the whole family live and sleep in this tiny space.

    My last few days in Melbourne

    A travel blog entry by kvstark on Feb 25, 2015

    ... hung out there for a while. I had left my bag in the storage room and just sat on the internet refreshing the hostelworld web page hoping that some hostel would have a cancellation or I would be out on the street again.

    A travel blog entry by keeleymclaren on Oct 31, 2014

    ... Aaron drove the 11 hours back home that evening (crazy!) whilst Maike and I crashed out! The following day I met up with my cousin Bex who was in Melbourne for the weekend. We caught the tram to St Kilda beach, walked along the pier, went into the sea up to our knees (it was freezing!) and relaxed on the sand. Later we caught the tram back, met up with Mel and headed to the wedding shop to get my Bridesmaid dress and went shopping for some shoes to go with it. The ...

    Arriving in Australia

    ... shops full of random and bizzar things. Its streets buzz with the song of buskers, the side walks fill with a wild collection of art and music floats out from little cafés and bars. Safe to say I absolutely love this place! Such a beautiful town and I cannot wait to come back again once my working time is over!

    Next stop...the farm!
