Boarded the plane at Changi and had to wait an hour before a take off slot. The good news was the expected 7 hour journey would now be a 6 hour journey because of good tail winds.  What we didn't know was  we would end up in a real life movie set where the captain said "is there a doctor on board?" There was and it resulted in the captain turning the plane around and going back to Singapore, so a 6 hour journey actually turned out to be 14 hours.  We unfortunately were unable to get to Philip Island as planned but after picking up the car at the airport, travelling around Melbourne's equivalent to spaghetti junction twice and the manic Aus drivers who cannot make up their minds which of the 5 lanes to use, we made it to St Kilda where we met a group of gap year student. 

After travelling thousands of miles we ended up on Brighton Beach!

Catch up again soon.

We could have taken you to Brighton Beach for a lot less and it was warm and sunny too!

Hi. Just got back from London and catching up with your news. Glad you enjoyed your stay in Singers with your tour guides, Dave & Michelle. Pity you didn't get to Philip Island but you saw a bit more of Melbourne and got used to the Aussie driving. Looking forward to your next entry. Love, Dad & Jean. xx
