After travelling thousands of miles we ended up on Brighton Beach!
Catch up again soon.
Boarded the plane at Changi and had to wait an hour before a take off slot. The good news was the expected 7 hour journey would now be a 6 hour journey because of good tail winds. What we didn't know was we would end up in a real life movie set where the captain said "is there a doctor on board?" There was and it resulted in the captain turning the plane around and going back to Singapore, so a 6 hour journey actually turned out to be 14 hours. We unfortunately were unable to get to Philip Island as planned but after picking up the car at the airport, travelling around Melbourne's equivalent to spaghetti junction twice and the manic Aus drivers who cannot make up their minds which of the 5 lanes to use, we made it to St Kilda where we met a group of gap year student.
