Melbourne Supremacy [Feb. 6th, 2005|10:29 am]

From January 31 until February 5, I took a trip to Melbourne, Christchurch, and Melbourne again. Despite the entire crew having the plague (write our names on the defects log), it was a great trip.

Flinders Station in Central Melbourne.

St. Paul's Cathedral, reflected in the modern Federation Square building.

The Tasman Glacier in front of New Zealand's Mt. Cook. Ski planes
land on the glacier, bringing tourists, says First Officer Alan.

New Zealand's coastline. Ice crystals on the window clouded the shot.

Christchurch is a gorgeous town that I hope to visit again. Too bad the
weather was too drizzly to capture much, but here is the Christchurch Cathedral.

For Airbus 340-500 lovers, and by that I mean Justin G, this is for you.
Two of the four engines and an Emirates logoed winglet.

While we were in Christchurch, a record-breaking storm hit Melbourne.
Trees fell, making sounds in schools, houses, and parks.

Melbourne is full of irresistable colors and light, begging
to be photographed.

I took lots of pictures and bought some jewelry. Watch this spot for strangler figs.

Thanks!! My friend Steve (in this icon) said once that "most web pages are crap, like 'Look, here are some snapshots of my holiday in Spain!'"

But I love web pages like that, and I like taking that kind of picture. Unashamedly. Hit me with your holidays in Spain; I'm a captive audience!

Thanks so much! I almost missed the trip but I didn't want to call sick again. I'm glad I didn't, because it was well worth it.

These are splendid. I am particularly enthralled with the St. Paul's Cathedral's reflection (I like things that are refracted/fractured) and the photo of the coastline taken from the airplane window (looks almost like a painting).

Thanks, Marc! I like the coastline, too. That's the South Island.

hello :)

my name is Emma, and Im from Australia. I found your journal through a airline community. Sorry to post anonymous, but I dont have a livejournal. I thought I would write you a comment, cause I would LOVE to be an Emirates flight attendant, but I have to wait until I am 21 to apply!! I really like reading you journal because it makes me even more determined to become a flight attendant, seeing all the places you go to and the fun you seem to have on your trips!!
Would you mind if I e-mail you? if so, please send an e-mail to aupair_emma@yahoo.com.au
From Emma
