My Travel Journal

"There isn't much I haven't shared with you along the road and through it all there'd always be tomorrow's episode" - Elton John

I started traveling around the world since early 80s when I had the opportunity to combine business trips with vacations. Then later when my rezeki is in abundance, there were numerous other trips along the way for vacations, most of the time with hubby and the kids when the timing is right. I have also started to compile the journal and photo-pages covering almost more than 25 years of world wide travel. Some destinations I visited just once, others many times. Many of those places are the obvious famous places people would like to visit but some, the casual traveler doesn't even think to try. I have placed links to my travel at the side bar of my personal page, My Life Reflections, and will be updating them from time to time.

My wish is to continue my travel and complete circumnavigate the globe, insyaAllah…

We woke up early and had breakfast in the campervan. By 09:30 we checked out and started driving towards Melbourne which is about 350km away. The journey took us around 4 hours and at 14:30 we reached Melbourne Apollo, South Centre Road Tullamarine and returned the Campervan.

After inspections and signing off, we moved all our belonging into the MPV and drove direct to DFO South Wharf for some shopping as it would be closed at 18:00. We had early dinner of seafood sandwiches at Subway restaurant in the DFO food court.

We arrived late and checked in Stanton Apartments in St Kilda Road. As the elevator was out of order we had to carry our luggage to the second floor.
