We already had decided we were going to stay in Melbourne for a while and get a job to fund the next stage of our travels. Plus we knew we would need accommodation as we would not be able to live free in Homer, as we had up to now.
We had made an appointment to see a guy about renting a studio, through an ad in a backpacker magazine.
Although we were told to be aware of the trams in Melbourne - They own the road more than cars do, we were not expecting to get lost straight away and go through 4 e-tag tolls in the process.
Anyway, we were able to pay for a day ticket retrospectively... could have been worse, and we eventually found St Kilda Beach.
We have moved into the studio (Unit 1, 52 Acland Street, St Kilda, Vic, 3182), which is just off the beach and near the trams.And live in a place called Acland street - Famous for its coffee shops and cakes.
We live close by to everything. Even straight across from the famous Luna Park (In the Sydney entry, i said that they had the original Luna Park. I am mistaken, as it is the Melbourne one)
We are also considering selling Homer (It will be a sad day!!!). Main reason being if we hang about here for a few months, then Homer will just be sitting parked, going nowhere (As there is no point driving around Melbourne...unless you are crazy)So we might as well see what price we can get. Currently we might have one offer (We are looking further into it). If we sell, we can hire or buy another van at a later date.
This morning we have registered with a few agencies (One of them now allowing us free internet for registering)so we will see where we go from here.
