Day 8 – Goodbye Melbourne, bring on the open road!

Here’s a brief summation of our three day Melbourne stopover as we prepare to leave in the morning and head slowly towards Mildura. And for those Tasmanians who may be wondering, we haven’t been hot yet. In fact, we’re going to take our warm cycling jackets with us rather than leave them in Melbourne as was originally planned.

We ate good food, ‘groumet’ Thai food…

…homemade coconut and mango ice cream courtesy of the best cook in the world (sorry Captain, not you…yet)…


…and The Hobbit in 3D…


Life in the big city must be having an effect on the Captain, he has worked out how to use the iPad (although I’m not sure how far he has progressed beyond playing Solitaire)!


Our legs are itching to get pedalling, and so are our bellies after the good eating we’ve been doing. Back to the ole tuna curry and rice tomorrow!
