Honeymoon Wrap

I just realized I haven't done a wrap of Mr Trifectagirl and I's honeymoon last week.  It was lovely.  We managed fantastic weather, although one day was particularly cool and the fog rolled in really early.

Mr Trifectagirl used his relationship-building skills to score us an upgrade to a suite at our hotel.  I was embarassed, but pleased with the result.   The staff were fantastic with everything, including sterilizing J's bottles each day for us!  Mr Trifectagirl has sent very positive feedback on our experience and stay to the international office.

We learned that prams do not go onto Melbourne trams particularly easily.  Which was a pain.

We did a walking tour of Melbourne's "The Golden Mile" and learned so much about the city - it was really worth doing.  We had the opportunity to catch up with an old friend who moved to Melbourne some 8 years ago, albeit briefly.

The main aim of the trip was to go to the "Tutenkahmun and the Golden Age of the Pharohs" exhibition.  And unfortunately we were disappointed.  I'm glad I went, but an exhibition a number of years ago at the Art Gallery of South Australia which from memory was much better.  This exhibition was speccy, but the Adelaide one seemed to be more comprehensive on recolection.  The highlight is actually the teddy bear I bought for J - dressed as King Tut, and named "Tutty Bear".  It falls into the clasification of 'so bad, it's good'.

The highlights of the trip had to be the flights there and back.  J flew really, really well.  Especially since he cut his first and second teeth on the respective flights!  J's first tooth at 4.5 months.
