We were in Melbourne for four days and spent a few hours of each of those days in the car (between the caravan park and the wedding venue, to and from the airport to pick up/drop off a friend, and visiting other friends). We really like our new car, and it is now much more pleasurable driving in traffic knowing we can accelerate at the same pace as the cars around us! We are also a lot more confident getting around Melbourne, with only a few minor incidents with missing turns and exits.
We had a great time catching up with friends and family in Melbourne, Geelong and Castlemaine, and are now in Bendigo. One of the great things about travelling is being able to visit people and take time for relationships, rather than being caught up in the busyness of work.
