Sep 26, 2006 - First stop - Melbourne

We arrived in Melbourne at 9:00am and were lucky enough to check into our hostel right away. We stayed in South Yarra, a fairly posh area just outside of the central city with tons of shopping and restaurants and bars. Really, all of Melbourne is just tons of shopping, restaurants and bars - we loved it. We spent three days right in Melbourne and did a lot of walking around the city checking out the various neighborhoods and the local architecture, shops and eateries - Fitzroy (alternative and arty), Carlton (Italian district), St. Kilda...

Dec 21, 2004 - Neighbours and Birds!

Not wanting to sound repetitive but RAAAAAA! Went on a neighbours night last night and a subsequent neighbours tour today. The difference being that last night, other than a piss up, we met good old Jellybelly himself, Harold Bishop and Steph and another bloke that only hardcore neighbours fans would know. (I only used to watch it back in the day when Charlene and Scott were getting it on!) Anyway, the night was really good and 'Harold' was really funny - had the crowd in stitches and was a good entertainer. Had a photo done and asked him...
