Melbourne the place to be
May 3, 2011 2 Comments
Guess what I am heading off to Melbourne! And the reaction I got was astounding from my friends, was “Whoa! Yes!”.
Imagine all the new excitement that I would come across.
Well at first I started having butterflies in my tummy and worst of all the life that I will face for the next five weeks.
So, Melbourne here I come. With challenges that lay ahead of me was all spinning around in my head for a first-timer and my first trip overseas.

What would be the first thing you would do once you’re in a foreign country? I kept reminding myself, Ok! just remain calm and ask around if you are not sure.
Sure enough it did help me out of my misery.
It has been over a week since I arrived in Melbourne while I have come to love the climate and becoming part of this historic part of Australia.
Getting to visit some of the amazing sites was a bonus for me and getting to taste different cuisines from popular Asian-dishes to the ever-tempting McDonalds hamburgers.
Melbourne had a lot to offer with historic architectural buildings which has alot and a multi-cultural atmosphere.
Twilight at night was a sight to behold and tempting cuisine aromas filled the air as restraunts line up the streets along the busy traffic of Lygon Street.
And of course I would never these experience slip by without capturing all the fun. A camera came in handy but was accidently dropped on a public transport. Retrieving my camera was a tough task.
You see, getting back such items was not that easy in Papua New Guinea as “finders are keepers” is noted among members of the public.
I was struck to know that I got my camera back after contacting the bus company. Thank you!
Looking back home, I thought what good it would do if our public transport providers can have for the return of lost properties.
I was told by the public transport provider that I was fortunate but at the same astounded to have got back what I thought would never be returned in the first place.
