Winter rain cometh!

It would appear that the “Parcel”thing may well have been some sort of scam. What the purpose of it is or was, we have no idea but it would seem several people across the town received such an email.

Melbourne – Part 3

Edinburgh Military Tattoo Melbourne Day three of our trip and today is the Edinburgh Military Tattoo. I think everyone was up and ready bright and early. The Tattoo was at 1pm but we had no idea where the Ethiad Stadium was, what the area was like and what kind of parking to expect. We  talked […]
