And so our family holiday began. All it all a very fun experience and it was my first time in Melbourne. Weather was very nice and cold. Lots of winds. We took the red eye (midnight flight) and arrived at 9am in the morning. Luckily everyone got a bit of rest. We checked into The Marriott Melbourne, and napped a little bit more, before coming out to explore the Queen Victoria Market and then had our dinner at a restaurant called Trunk which was beside our hotel. A generally easy day to start the trip off.
