The last few weeks have been a bomb, finally I have some time for myself. Melbourne is way busier than Auckland and it’s transportation system is extremely complicated. The tram rides were very intense, we had to count the stations so that we did not miss our stop. I guess I have been living in the desert New Zealand for too long.
We planned to stay at the Blackman hotel for two nights, however, for some reason this hotel freaked us out and we made reservation at the Stamford immediately. When I looked back at the photos today, it wasn’t that freaky at all honestly I have no idea what happened on that day. We arrived at the hotel with the famished shell and it was all dark outside. The hotel has over-whelmed art works, they are everywhere and I mean it.
We couldn’t find any decent restaurants around the hotel, therefore we ended up with frozen meals from Coles and thank goodness that we have a microwave in our room. The room itself wasn’t overly huge but just enough for two people, and it has two balconies. It was too spooky to go out to the balcony at night, so we snapped a pic or two before rushing out in the morning. Usually, we stay at Starwood Hotels who allow us to have late check -out till 4/5:00 pm, without knowing that the usual check out time is 11:00am. We were shocked to find out when the font desk called in the morning and that ended our stay.
