The reason for the Melbourne trip was to take MJ to see one of his favourite bands perform, Garbage! More on that later. From the airport, we took the Skybus into their city terminal which we then transferred to a shuttle that left us a block away from the hotel. I would have preferred door […]
If you remember, one of the first times I went to Melbourne, I didn’t like it. I thought it was crowded and lacked a variety of food. I still think it’s very crowded and a lot of people spend more time looking down at their phones rather than looking at where they’re walking. Some people […]
Just came back from Melbourne for a short 2 day vacation (holiday). I love to see different parts of the world but I hate the whole process of traveling. The packing – making sure you are covered for every possible scenario. What if it rains? Umbrella packed. What if it’s cold when it says it’s […]

Our American Airlines flight from JFK to LAX was fine – better than I had expected. Despite the fact that it ran through LJ’s naptime and he refused to cuddle up and sleep and despite the fact that they didn’t offer any food (just an Asian Chicken Wrap for $5 that my picky toddler refused […]
