Mr FD and I are flying to the city of Melbourne, in Victoria, this morning and staying there until Sunday evening. Regular readers will remember that a couple of months ago I won an all expenses trip to a Teacher Librarians’ Conference, and I will be attending that conference on Friday. Flights and accommodation are covered by the prize money, so we are making the most of it.
The conference will be held within the National Gallery of Victoria. The NGV claim to have the best high teas in town, so I am thinking that Mr FD can meet me there after the conference and we shall take a genteel tea.
We are staying in the city centre and so can take advantage of the free central city tram to get around.
We have made no firm sightseeing plans, but it is about five years since we have been to Melbourne and so no doubt there are lots of things to see. The Aquarium is on our to do list though.
I want to see as much of this as possible…
See you Monday!
