Danny’s Take on Australia

Melbourne The first day in Australia we went to Melbourne.  The hotel we went to had 50 levels and sometimes my mom’s ears popped because we were so high in the air.  I think we were on levels 47 and 48!  We were there for 2 days with a free breakfeast buffet.  The hotel was nice and there was a great view for the sunset.  I think it was the Sofitel hotel!  I loved it for two days and then we moved into Port Douglas for 5 days.

When we were ready to leave… Read More
