Was down in Melbourne Friday/Saturday for a meeting on Saturday. Headed down Friday morning so I could catch up with a friend for lunch and do some Melbourne wanderings before the scheduled dinner Friday night and meeting all day Saturday…
The flight there was lovely and uneventful (though I was on the wrong side of the plane to see Mt Hotham and the other things the pilot kept mentioning!)
Delicious! Luken and May biscuits
Then it was off to the Oaks on Market to see if they’d let me check in. Which they did :) I was sharing a 2 bedroom apartment with another person.
Off to the city centre
I got to catch up with a friend for lunch at the City Library cafe… she got to he me moan about my stressed brain, rather patiently ;)
Spent some time after that wandering, tried on some things, but they weren’t right… wound up back at the hotel, showered, put on my Maiocchi dress, and hung out in the R2 bar with my netbook and internet stick :p
Before long, it was time to head to the Welcome dinner, held at Alexi’s in the hotel
I had the Barramundi which was yum! Then myself and my roommate asked and got fruit salads, while the others ate deliciously awesome looking sweets.
The Saturday was LONG… 8:30 til after five.
The pilot warned us to expect a bumpy flight, and it was rather bumpy except for the maybe 10 mins cruising! Lots of bumping through the clouds up and down.
Was pleased to be on the ground after that flight!!
(but not so to have to get up the next day for a full day at Uni. This may kill me yet.)
