We stayed one night at the Sebel Lodge Yarra Valley and really like the rooms with a nice view on the golf courses. The restaurant served excellent breakfast with everything imaginable included. What was disappointing was the internet fee of 0.55 AUD a minute. While the rate was capped at around 30 AUD/day, you would easily spend that amount for only an hour of connectivity, which is just too much!

Work is done for us both so now to focus on the holiday.

Guess what we've been up to lately! You got it. Doing some fun stuff and getting the most out of our stay in Melbourne as possible. Even though that car sale didn't pan out as expected, we won't let that get into our way of having a blast on the rails of Melbourne. It is one of the world's best transit systems, I'll have you know. Taking the free city circle tourist tram ride around town lasted about an hour and introduced us to parts we probably wouldn't have ...
... degrees and higher this last week so you can imagine my relief when Alan suggested I park close to an old corrugated shed alongside a trotting track so he could sling a cable from the shed to my caravan and I could run my air conditioner. "Camping here's free mate so make yourself comfortable and run your aircon as long as you want....power's also free", he advised me. With my van well setup and the aircon chugging along at full revs Alan and I sat in the shade of an ...
... 3 course meal, plenty of wine and champers and good music going on till late.
I chilled with Mel and her family for the next couple of days before she went off on her honeymoon. I'd had enough of Melbourne by then. I saw an advert on gumtree offering a cheap lift to Sydney in return for sharing the driving and took the guy up on the offer. Along with two Swiss-French girls we shared the 9 hour drive to Sydney and I got dropped off at Sydney backpackers in the city ...
