I’ve visited both places a few times now, but keep getting drawn back, particularly to Melbourne it seems – going there again for the food and going back to Brisbane because I love the river and city so much.
I was tempted to visit Sydney again as well, but I couldn’t really fit it into the schedule – not sure about Sydney, I enjoyed my visit there, but not sure what living there long term would be like, especially compared to cities like Melbourne….
Unlike past trips, this time I’m taking @splatdevil – it’s going to be our first international holiday together and I get to introduce her to the awesomeness of both places. :-)
To help organise meetups with internationally located friends/readers/stalkers, here is the travel plan:
- Oct 20 – 08:00 – arrival in Melbourne
- Oct 22 – 13:00 – depart Melbourne for Brisbane, arrive around 14:00
- Oct 24 – 16:00 – depart Brisbane for Wellington
That gives us around 2.5 days in each city – so if you’re around and want to catch up with Lisa and/or myself, please let me know when you’re available and I’ll schedule stuff in. :-)
We haven’t planned any specific activities yet, so please feel free to make suggestions/recommendations on things to see and do. :-)
