Greetings from down under! It's glorious today and it has been wonderful to swap a cold grey UK for a lovely hot and sunny Australia by climbing aboard the trusty steed pictured below and jetting off to the sun.
This was home for the next 24 hours. No room to swing a cat of course, and after nearly 24 hours of sitting in such a confined space we were mightily glad to finally land in Melbourne late last night.
We had a couple of stops en route. Dubai and Brunei. Been there, done that. We decided that two stopovers makes the journey seem so much longer. Last time we flew with Qantas and stopped briefly in Singapore but this time with two stops the rigmarole of getting off the plane, hanging round in an airport departure lounge, going through security AGAIN and so on is just rather exhausting! Anyway, the important thing is that we are here and all set to do more exploring of this wonderful city, and of course enjoy every minute spent in the company of you know who - the Melbourne Munchkin! Boy, has she changed a lot since we left her at the end of June last year!
Hope you will watch this space. We've got six weeks to fill. Piece of cake (probably lots!).
