Today, we woke up at our hotel in Sydney at about 7 AM. We started packing all of our suitcases to go to Melbourne, and went to catch a shuttle to the airport at around 9 AM. We went to the lobby 15 minutes early and our shuttle driver picked us up there. I sat in the front of the shuttle bus. We picked up 4 more people on the way to the airport, about a 45 minute drive, and then we were off. We got to the airport at about 10:15 AM. We checked our bags and went off to security. On the way there, I stopped for breakfast and got a Quiche, and my mom and sister got Hungry Jacks, the Australian version of Burger King. We got to security, went through the metal detectors, then hurried to our boarding area because we were boarding in 10 minutes. We got there, waited about 5 minutes and started boarding our plane to Melbourne. We flew with Jetstar Airlines, on an Airbus 330-200, a big planes with 8 seats wide. When we started flying, I took out my laptop and listened to music. Before I could ever listen to 5 songs, we were already descending so I had to put away my computer. The flight was only about an hour and a half, and it was later going to Bangkok, Thailand. When we landed, at about 1:15, we got our bags from the luggage carousel, got out of the airport and caught a taxi to go to our hotel. The drive in the taxi was about 30 minutes, until we got to the Quality Inn. We are staying in a 2 bedroom apartment with a living room and kitchen, its very beautiful. When we got to our hotel, we stayed here for a while, then went grocery shopping at the IGA across the street. Its very expensive in Australia. We then came back to the hotel, stayed here for a while, then left again for a small walk around Melbourne. We stopped at Krispy Kreme Doughnuts on the way back, and we each got a doughnut. when we got back to the hotel, I mad some supper, fresh hand made ravioli, and ate. I then watched Australias Got Talent, and now Im writing. Thanks for reading!
