Debbie does...round the world
3rd Nov 2016 - 5th Nov 2016 - Tasmania and Melbourne
Melbourne and a wonderful ending

So these few days consisted on travelling back to Melbourne.

Met with my fantastic friend Kellie and her husband Michael and young Oscar - caught the tram and went to hellenic Republic - George's restaurant (off my fave Masterchef). Food was tasty but expensive.

Following day we took the tram into Melbourne and went to the Museum - lokked the indigenous peoples section. Then back to Brunswick to meet for dinner with kellie and Michael at one of their locals - fantastic pub food.

Saturday was all about getting up early and travelling to the airport. As MR hadcome from England and I had come from NZ Emirates didnt realise we were travelling together although with online check in we did have seats sitting next to each other. The check in person was slightly surprised when I handed over my details - he handed meback a boarding pass which I glanced at and then asked if there was a reason we couldnt sit together as my seat number was different. He asked if we were travelling together and I explained that yes we were but had come from different places. he then said to excuse him and got onto the phone. i then looked at my boarding pass more closely as it had a big BUSINESS CLASS at the top of it. Excitedly pointed this out to MR with the sinking feeling hoping a didnt have a decision to make as to business class or him lol. Anyway Mr nice man got off the phone and said the pland was full in economy and would MR mind also have a free upgrade and sitting next to me in Business class. Just saying ... I was delighted. Twas a fabulous Emirates experience - champagne before take off, seats that became beds, our own wee stash of snacks and drinks next to us. Shame it wasnt a long haul trip. I went up to the bar for a cocktail, loved the menu choices - it was a fine way to travel and a fitting end to our holiday reunion.

Next: The Molesworth Road - Marlborough to Canterbury
