Only just got to Sydney, and there I was – hopping on a plane to Melbourne. Not just that – I was going for just one day. Australians seem to think that Melbourne and Sydney are close together – no they ain’t – Leeds and Bradford, now THAT’S close together. Anyway – I had a meeting in Melbourne so off I went.
I went with Virgin Blue, who have a pretty plane. Look.
It was raining in Melbourne, and extremely freezing (like 9 degrees) – hey – I am a Sydney acclimatised Pom now – that feels cold. Didn’t explore much, but did take some pictures of the world-famous ETIHAD stadium and the area around it, which was extremely deserted and lifeless.
Not much to eat at Melbourne Airport (domestic terminal), which is accessed via a special bus which drives along a motorway for 20 minutes to a place called Tullamarine (sounds nicer than it actually is..)
Wasn’t that impressed with Melbourne city centre, but maybe that’s cos it was raining and I was tired.
