After a rather sleepless night in the Qantas flight we arrived in Melbourne in the ealry hours of this morning. Have to say that I know it's autumn here but when you're coming from 30 deg celsius + it's FREEZING (so it'll be great for everyone elso on this site as it's currently hovering around 20 deg c). We manage to check in early to our temporary accomodation and I have to say that I'm usually quite jammy with the hotel searching but I really outdid myself this time. We're staying at the Plum Carlton Apartments Melbourne, CBD on Swanston Street (about 5 mins walk into town literally) for $98 a night for 7 nights. It's serviced apartments with a nice little cafe next door and for that amount of money we both can't quite believe the qulaity of our studio apartment.
Oh, before I forget, for those of you that were on the tea thread we got in absolutely fine with our big box of PG Tips. OH got asked what was in the box and he said black tea and they asked no more!
Just wanted to ask 2 things:
1) We need to set up a bank account asap and were wondering what people thought of ANZ, Westpac and NAB
2) Any ideas on where we should look to live if OH is working in Mulgrave, me potentially in the CBD and we need to live near a rail network?
Any help on those 2 questions would be much appreciated!!
