Back from Melbourne

Finally back to Manila last Sunday. For the first time my ear hurted so bad when we are about to land.  If there is one thing that I miss from Australia… specifically Melbourne — its the cool air.  Being in Melbourne was like being in London.  The British influence is so evident in Australia not just by the names of places and streets but the structures as well. 

This is where we stayed... The Windsor Hotel.  Does it reminds you of London?

So what did I like from Melbourne Australia?

  • The thought of experiencing winter is really something new so I enjoyed it but not the occasional rains during winter.
  • Structures are so European very gothic… these are so pleasing to the eyes.
  • City tram is such a big help for newbies in Australia not to mention its free.
  • I simply like how they are preserving their natural resources and treasures may it be forest or animals.
  • NO TRAFFIC =)
My favorite city link red tram. Who cares if its old? Its FREE anyway.

There are also lots of things that surprised me while staying  in Melbourne

  • Mall closes at 6pm except on a Friday when it extends up to 9pm.  I wonder how some shop-a-holic Pinoys could endure living in this place with this.  Even restaurants closes at 6pm.
  • Sign warning that there might be kangaroo or wombat crossing in the next few kilometers.
  • Unbelievably slow internet connection… Jinmyung was so right in ranting about how bad their internet connection is considering its ‘broadband’ quality.
  • Airport is not so comparable with that of Hongkong and Singapore…its not so first world.

    Interesting. I’ve also been exploring Aussie happenings, particularly in the world of kangaroo boxing, as well as koalas, Barry Crocker, and Matthew McConaughey over at the Rodeo.
