Booked a room with two Queen beds for the Digital Parents Conference for just under $200 per night. No breakfast included, but that’s what the fruit I snaffled from the plane and lunch buffets was for!
(Fifth floor view)
After an initial stuff up, where we were put into a room with just one king bed (we upgraded you! but yah, great, I just MET this person, not yet on bed sharing terms), and then when I arrive I walked into an already occupied room where someone was asleep with the concierge due to them forgetting to change the room number on my key. Silly. Anyway. Once that was all settled :/
The beds were super comfy and the shower nice and HOT. The aircon controller had me confused, so I just stuck with using the window to regulate the temperature…
Until the Digital Parents Conference, I’d never flown between Sydney and Melbourne. Plenty of flights from Canberra to Melbourne, but never had I done the Sydney route. (I’ll be flying to Melbourne again in a week, too! This time on Virgin for the Global Atheist Convention!)
Two dinner time flights, the first delayed by half an hour, because the flight after mine was cancelled and they packed as many people onto our plane as they could. Which meant they were undercatered. No issues for me though! ;)
A nice lamb curry and a gluten free muffin were served. Lovely! :) And in the exit row, too! ;)
The return meal was a little plainer… fish in a tomato and caper sauce, sultanas and a banana.
The fish was quite good, not too “fishy” and the potatoes went down well. I skipped out on the overdone beans, as you do! :p
Nice to have some nice, simple foods, and not be weighed down by the pasta that seems to be the regular meal of choice.
A big weekend. I learned some things. That I love some of my blogging people to bits. That I shouldn’t be in a room of overly emotional posts and stories being read out. That I want to use my blogging for some sort of good. That a roomful of bloggers is a room full of anxiety ;)
