Stopover in Melbourne – and it’s been grand!

DSC02086

Almost three years ago I visited Melbourne on my trip through Australia. Back then I had to leave in a rush and rather unexpectedly (but that’s another story….) so I promised myself that I would be back one day. And so I am! It’s basically on the way to New Zealand so why not hop off the plane for 49 hours instead of just one?

And oh, those hours are flying by like a blink of an eye. I’m trying hard to make best use of my time here and fighting hard against my permanent companion – Mr. Jet lag. I was able to get a lot of touristy things done like strolling the streets of the Central Business District, a walk along St. Kilda beach, dinner in Chinatown, attending a lecture at university, exploring Federation Square and when the jet lag finally took over I cruised the city on a tram. Might tell you more in a later post – now I’ll get some sleep to catch an early flight to Auckland tomorrow morning, hooray!

    Hello Eva, i do not really have any austrian contacts in NZ but you could go and visit the farm on the south island where i did work. It is nearby Greymouth on the westcoast of the southisland. Just let me know in case you wanna go.
