to make blogging more meaningful! i'm going to share some of my travel tips. not yours but moi!
if you can stand the brutal coldness of winter! you'll love the winter Oz! it's amazing! but seriously! toboggan at least once in your life time. it makes scars for memories, i mean it the good way. you can finally tell your kids "how daddy got the scars." *grin*
if you're a man with the camera, big camera! and plan to take your tripod along on board. my advise? don't ever think about it! check in your tripod. you have no idea how strict the Ozzies are. NASTY. my trip for 2 ways for Melbourne costed about RM1,600 and another Tiger airway bound for Tasmania in about RM200. i brought 550AUD and left me 10 bucks! exchange rates at 1AUD= RM2.84 i spent it all! hell yea!
DAY 1- KL- MELB
it took 7 hours and 50 minutes getting to Melbourne. how i spent those hours? i'm a great traveler. i shut my eyes, the next thing i know, i'm already at Melbourne. ayes. the pilot woke me up. whoa! the winter sky is awesome!
we took the express bus to the town, 2 ways for 26 bucks (AUD).
Leo Pacific! yes. we noob, we're suppose to look for the backpacker hotel but we found none, so all set! Leo Pacific Hotel studio apartment! 109 bucks a night, twin sharing. expensive? but it's so nice! and look at the environment! =)
DAY 2- Melb- Tassie
we woke up early in the winter morning, have a wonderful breakfast, and set sail to Tassie!!! an aroused pleasurable anticipation all within me! Tassie Tassie! and ck.
settle our burden at his cottage house, we had Japs lunch! with his gf. and his housemate fat boy joe.
° backward and it goes. "meh?" freak out!
DAY 3- Ben Lomond Tasmania
the next day! ck brings us Snow Boarding! it tooks several hours for us to get to Ben Lomond, it's in fact a snow mountain where you can snow boarding, skiing, ice-creaming, and Tobogganing! thanks Ck, it's the first time in my life seeing ice, playing ice, eating ice, and being insulted by ice. i love you ck...
DAY 4 already??? - Freycinet Wineglass Bay, Hobart!
again. i'd been waking up 8am in the morning, that was like 6am in Malaysia...that's nut! and it was as though i was living in the future! cool! this day! ck bring us to the Wineglass Bay! a little hiking for the big Wineglass Bay! if you're a nature-lovers! you sure love Tasmania! all the way towards Wineglass Bay, it's tonne and tonne of amazing views!
Strangers' Hotel found us. and it's only 85 bucks for 3 of us! and i love the room! we can put our beds together, having some grain wave chips! and watching Boogeyman!
DAY 5! (ohh no)- Bruny Island- Launceston
the next day. we were suppose to take the cruise along Bruny Island but heck, we ought to wake at 4am. blart! screw that! we don't care if that's a "World top 100 must do things". we're gonna explore Bruny the Island ourselves!
Brekkie at the Hotel Stranger
but still manages to take down our lunch! seafood platter with very the delicous atlantic salmon, mouth-watering ocean trout but a too salty rainbow trout, also, a little quail. great lunch!
DAY 6- Launceston- Melbourne
it's goodbye then. to ck. me & ben's last day at Tassie. it's rained that day, the creator was sobbing upon our departures. thank you so much for everything ck. it's been a hell of photographing journey for me. it means a lot!
