Melbourne

Our final stop! None of us can believe how quick our final and permanent stop has come!
Canberra to Melbourne turned out to be a veeeery long drive over 10
Hours due to an accident. Arriving late at Fergal’s brothers (where we will be lodging for a while) we ate pizza and HUNG OUR CLOTHES UP!! It wasn’t a late night as we were all shattered and quickly fell into bed.

The following day we were very productive settling up bank accounts, phones, gyms, library and heading into the city which we found extremely confusing! It’s a huge city with so many different suburbs to go and visit! That’s what makes Melbourne so cool and different is the suburbs that are all unique places to go and adventure around.

Those first few days were spent setting things up, looking for jobs and getting a feel for Melbourne. We spent the Easter weekend making friends and having a few drinks. Below is a few snaps of our first few weeks in Melbourne.

Fran and I queued to get into Australia first H&M and the biggest one in the world! …. I’ve now been back at least 6 times and queued at least 5 of those times!
