Melbourne Cup Day
Trip Start Aug 16, 2004
133Trip End Aug 13, 2005
It is held on the first Tuesday in November, as part of the Melbourne Spring Carnival, and not wanting to stand out as British, we decided we just had to go to the pub and drink.
First though, we placed a couple of bets on the horses. Luckily for me, I had the winner so i won about $8. Not a grand amount but enough to buy a couple of beers. The rest of the day was a blur, as we bought some wine from the bottle shop underneath the hostel and had a few more drinks.
