I have very few adventures in Australia in September. Mainly because I was gone most of the month. A friend was unexpectedly in Melbourne for the weekend, so I flew down to hang out. Which was rough, I flew in from Austin on Thursday and flew down to Melbourne on Friday.
I stayed at my 2nd home in Australia, Grand Hyatt Melbourne. I love this place, it like visiting with friends. Truly. They called me out for being cranky and jet legged, yes Roddy- I heard you. So they organized a massage over at the Park Hyatt. So much for never going back there. It was just what I needed.
Since it was raining when I met up with my friend ,we headed over to the National Gallery Victoria, which was featuring a Dior exhibit. It was surprisingly fun. His original pieces were just amazing.
The gallery was quite interesting as well. It has unique collection of art and aside from special exhibits, it’s free. So another reason to visit.
Ironically, the sun came out as we were leaving. Melbourne is a bit like Chicago with it’s weather.
There were not too many adventures in Brisbane, because I headed back to the States a few days later. Yes you reading that correctly, I was in Texas flew back to Australia and then back to the States in a matter of 2 weeks.
Until next time, safe travels!
