Sometime in mid-2007, Fiza and I talked about going for a holiday together. After much discussion we decided to head to Australia for one main reason – our friend Erin who lived in Melbourne just gave birth and she told us to pay her a visit, offering us free roof and food for a week.
But Melbourne alone wasn’t much excitement. We wanted to include Gold Coast, but couldn’t find any available hotel of our budget and liking. Eventually we decided to add on Sydney instead. The plan was to fly MAS from KL to Sydney and celebrate Christmas in Sydney. Then to fly Jetstar from Sydney to Melbourne and celebrate New Year in Melbourne. Then to fly back to Sydney and spend a few more days there before heading home.
So brace yourself for our 14-day journey in the land down under!
