via melbourne

i was in melbourne yesterday.  it wasn't a planned trip. we were about to land in adelaide, slowing down, descending, the usual landing stuff when all of a sudden we were going up again at tremendous speed and there was a loud engine screeching noise.  everyone on board looked at each other with fear.  what was happening?  we had to wait about 10 minutes before the pilot came on the intercom and told us we couldn't land in adelaide as visibility was zero and we were going to melbourne. in about an hour and 10 minutes we landed in melbourne and it was freezing.   i only had a tshirt and jeans on and couldn't get to my carry on.  the airport in melbourne is all diy.  amazing.  i'll post some more about bali soon, especially my dolphin adventure and my visit to the buddhist monastery and the hot springs.  i had an amazing time but as usual i'm so happy to be home.


  1. Jeepers, hope you didn't have to hand around Melbourne airport for too long!
