Jan 10, 2006 - Australiƫ, Melbourne

Geland op Australische bodum! Maar helaas was ik hier al aangekomen om iets van 09:00h. En vertrekt m'n vlucht naar Tasmaniƫ pas om 19:40h...Dus dat was een lange zit op het vliegveld.. Beetje gelezen, muziek geluisterd, rondgebanjerd door het winkelgedeelte enz. Totdat ik eindelijk weer kon doorvliegen naar Hobart!

Jan 6, 2006 - Vic: Black boar terror in Yarra Valley

The thing about getting back to nature is sometimes you forget that nature has to be shared with some fairly scary customers. We're picking my mum up on the 10th to drive down the Great Ocean Road, so we've got a couple of days to explore Victoria before we head westwards. Heard a lot about the Yarra valley, and as it has great wineries like Yarra Yering and Coldstream Hills and is only a bit over an hour north from Melbourne, it seems a good option. It's good summery weather so we're a bit mad to be heading from the coast, but it's a...

Jan 5, 2006 - My 4th Picture

Dr Mark said I was so beautiful/handsome (I'm not allowed say what gender I am yet) that he wanted another picture of me. I was asleep during the picture, which is why I was so well behaved. I'm already pretty big for my age/gestation. At only 34 weeks I'm already 2.9 kilos, which means by the time I'm born I might be 9 pounds plus in the old measurements. Everyone was pleased I am so healthy, but I think my mum has very mixed emotions about some parts of the scan results.

Jan 5, 2006 - Melbourne, Victoria

After a 4 hour coach trip and 4 hour train journey we arrived in Melbourne last night! After travelling half hour on a tram to a hostel only to find they were full (and so were all the others in the area!) we went back into the city centre and found another hostel, which is really nice. Weve also got an 8 bed dorm all to ourselves! So much less chance of being woken up by snoring! After going to The Queen Victoria Market we did a 3 hour walk around the city (a suggested route in the Lonely Planet) which took us through the Botanical...

Jan 4, 2006 - Vic: Back from Tas to take Ang & Keith to Carnie Town

Spirit of Tasmania docks and we head straight to Tullamarine so we're not late for Ang & Keith. Unfortunately the signs to the airport run us around in circles until we finally stop and get some directions. The weather isn't great back on the mainland and we're starting to feel cursed. We're in plenty of time to meet Ang & Keith's flight, but it's a sorry sight that meets us when their plane gets in. Ang is not well and suffering badly, from what she knows not. There are several sources that could have the blame laid at their feet, but we...

Jan 3, 2006 - Melbourne, Australia

Ahhhh Western Civilization!!!! YEAH! We are sooooo excited to be back in civilization. While we look back and really did enjoy our time in India (I know it didn't really show in our entries) we are quite happy to walk out of our hotel and have a 7-11, two coffee shops, a Subway, and many other places to eat things that won't make us sick! It took us about 24 hours of traveling to make it here, but it was well worth it. We have seen so much of this city, it's been great. From visiting the Crown Casino, the river restaurants, Federation...

Dec 31, 2005 - Happy New Year

Yesterday was the hottest day so far, it was 39 degress and we were melting. We didn't feel like doing alot because of the heat but we all headed into the city to Queen Victoria Markets and got lots of vegetables, fish and meat for our New Years Eve BBQ. It's supposed to get up to 42 degrees today, it's too hot to move. We headed to the beach for a bit of a dip but we only spent about half an hour there, we couldn't stick the heat. We are looking forward to our BBQ tonight and we might head into the city to see the fireworks and live...

Dec 31, 2005 - Melbourne, Australia

We have just made it Melbourne at 7pm last night, sort of last minute to catch New Years Eve at Lukie's mom's house. JOhhny picked us up at the airport, the souther summer in full force. After the nice coolness of WA, the heat was a bit brutal, perhaps 100F at 7:30 pm... We spent the night with the Bongiornos, wineing and dining outside in the yard with friends. After midnight we visited their neighbors, and played a round the largest pool table I have ever seen. Apparently regulation size, but it really a small tennis court, as opposed to...

Dec 30, 2005 - Melbourne

Met in Melbourne airport by Tim's cousin Martyn which was a great thing as Melbourne is huge and the suburbs spread out for about 70kms! Barb came home from work early to meet us which was amazing, as this is the last week at school with loads of school concerts and presentation evenings to attend. We discussed what do this week and decided that to get away and explore the "Great Ocean Road" before the children break up for summer holidays would be a good idea. So the very next morning we hired a little car and tootled off west to the coast...

Dec 29, 2005 - So I am in Melbourne now!!!

So we were sitting around in Byron on the 27th, and Stacey and I were talking about how we had spent too much time there(even though we do love it) but we were bored. So I suggested we fly to Melbourne for New Years and then rent a vehicle and do the Great Ocean Road before I have to start work on Jan. 16th! So we went to the internet and within 15 minutes bought a ticket for the next day to Melbourne!! It was only $89!! So it was a really good deal. We just got here last night and are now figuring out what to do for New Years and how much...
