Melbourne Day 6: Return Car, Hook Turn & Elephant Backpacker

Note: This post has the least photos of all my travelogue posts!!! (kekeke) But it will have me babbling long winded. (hahaha)

The next morning, I woke up and drink some of the water I boiled yesterday night. Ate leftovers from yesterday’s dinner for first breakfast. Not long after I had stomachache and nausea. My sis had the same thing except the water so I knew something must be wrong with the water. More over the water tasted funny when I drank it but choose to just ignored it. Haha (so now kena!)

After checked out, we bought our second breakfast at the restaurant just outside Geelong Riverview Tourist Park; mine is toasted chicken & avocado sandwich AUD5.50. However I could only afford a bite. The wanna-vomit feeling is still there.

Still we proceed to Geelong post office. Sending postcards and letters are a must! Then we head back to Melbourne. Lost our way somehow near Lorimer Street. And I went into Kraft office to ask for direction. Hahaha The directions given were easy to understand but when we come face to face with the road, everything’s different. Having GPS at this stage didn’t help at all. So we just used our 6th sense to navigate the roads. And what do you know? We found our way back to Melbourne!!! Wohoooo

Melbourne Day 3: St. Kilda Beach, Luna Park & Acland Street (Part 2)

Continuation from Melbourne Day 3: Victoria Hall & Queen Victoria Market Again (Part 1)

We dropped off our QVM’s shopping goods and had perhaps 2 hours of good sleep at the hostel before heading out. The beds at Victoria Hall were luring us again! Hehe

Remember we bought tram tickets at Flinders Street Station on the first day? We’re going to use it now for our trip to St Kilda. We learned that you just need to validate your metcard ticket one time once you get on the tram (for daily full fare zone 1 ticket).

St Kilda is a city suburb of Melbourne, located just 6km south of Melbourne. The main draws of St Kilda are the beach and food.

We waited to nearly 1/2 hour for the tram as we missed one just as we cross the road to the tram stop. The tram ride from La Trobe Street/Swanston Street tram stop to St Kilda took about 20 minutes. We reached St Kilda around 4pm. Initially we wanted to go to Brighton Beach (which is famous for its colorful beach houses) as well but looking at the time constraint, we have to choose either one. We go for St Kilda as Brighton Beach is further away and train is needed to get there.
