Catsnstuff Down Under – 2: Melbourne

June 8, 2008

Hi everyone, it’s time for part two of my big trip. I spent the last week or so in Melbourne, and I have to say that I was really looking forward to it, but my first impressions of the city many say has such a nice open, European vibe were not too good. The busride from Sydney took twelve hourse and I arrived realy early, at 6:00 in the morning and had a hard time finding my way around the city and to my hostel. I eventually took the wrong train and decided just to walk to my hostel from there, even if it was quite far away. I arrived tired and looking a tad dishevelled and all I wanted was a bed. But they would not let me in my room and asked me very disinterested to just wait some hours. The atmosphere was really cold and rude, so I decided to check out the hostel my mom’s friend Kirsten recommended. don’t ask why I didn’t do that in the first place, that was quite stupid ;).

So I arrived at the hostel, which is an old Nunnery and the place was just AMAZING! A beautiful house filled with paintings an cosy rooms and a communal area with a fireplace. O, and a cat, named Brother Francis. Want to see him? Then…
