Amongst my favourite views are those of descending into a new location. You have no idea of the adventure that awaits you. I've had the luxury of descending into Melbourne Airport a few times now, but never with such a bleeding sunrise. Our flight this time chased the sun, to arrive first thing on a Friday morning.
Catching up with my family means I don't come home with a wealth of stories to share, but something about Melbourne always stays with me. It has been completely different each time I've been - only helped with being older on each visit, giving an entirely new perspective. We visit the old favourite places where we've left memories and discovered new haunts which I'm sure we'll be revisiting on our next visit, whenever that may be.
One of my favourite places around Melbourne is Lorne, just one of the many stop offs on The Great Ocean Road. It's a typical seaside town, but if you're lucky enough to find accommodation, or better yet know a local, to ascend the steep hills backing the beach, you're in for some pretty amazing vistas.
