Back From Sydney

Finally got back from Sydney this evening after a short four-day three-night stay. I was given an extra week off before I start work at my new job. Raquel and I took advantage of this chance for a bit of vacation so we booked a flight for Sydney.

Last time we visited Sydney was when we were still living in Canberra over three years ago. So when Raquel asked me where I wanted to go for a few days away from Melbourne, I suggested Sydney. Well, I just wished to see the place again, for one. I guess another reason for my wanting to go was that I sometimes feel like I may have made the wrong choice in moving to Melbourne instead of Sydney. Now that we’ve been there again, Raquel and I both believe that we were right in choosing Melbourne after all.

Time willing, I’ll tell you all more about our short trip to Sydney later and maybe post some photos, too.

We usually take Virgin Blue airlines for interstate flights but we’ve decided to go with JetStar for a change. Their cheaper airfare convinced us to give them a go. The thing I found odd though was that JetStar doesn’t fly from the Melbourne Domestic Airport. Instead, it flies out of Avalon Airport. I’m not really complaining as Avalon is relatively close to Werribee. We’ll probably fly with JetStar the next time we want to fly interstate.

I’m just glad to be back and to be able to sleep in our own bed again.
