There are an estimated 6.3 million Americans living overseas and according to Expat Info Desk that number is growing, especially for younger people. The article reported the number of Americans ages 25 to 34 who plan to relocate abroad has rapidly increased in the past two years, jumping to 5.1 percent from less than 1. Forty percent of all Americans 18 to 24 expressed strong interest in moving out of the U.S. Whether it be for political reasoning, job relocation or simply a wanderlust urge, the fact is Americans are going global.
Explore The West End
Cant say that I have stayed at the Luxurious Crown Metropol (have stayed at the Novotel in St Kilda) so I guess it would be just as gorgeous! I think it would be on par with Novotel after looking at their stunning rooms online?
This is not a review on where we stayed (as in Hotels!) because I would never review a hotel that I would not recommend! But this is a review about Staying At Frankston Melbourne.
Hi-Lights Of Frankston
Those words “Location, Location, Location” are so very true. Frankston is about an hour from Melbourne City and is also near the most gorgeous beaches.
Going for a Scenic drive along the coast (from the navy base back to Frankston) took our breathe away. The curvey roads revealed more and more on each bend…looking out over the water it was so blue, so clear, the sand was a perfect colour and the little cute beach “Huts” gave it a mediterraean feel to the place.
For that I could never say thank you enough. You see I entered a competition about My Favorite Schweppes Cocktail and I was stunned – I actually won a trip to Melbourne, to a cocktail party, and an over night stay in the most amazing hotel.
Sharing My Dream Come True
There were many reasons why I wanted so badly to win the Trip to Melbourne. One of them being that I need to get out of my comfort zone, and another one being that I have never been to a Schweppes Cocktail Party before.
Yesterday I wrote about Postcard From Melbourne, sharing lots of photos and information about staying in Melbourne. While I was there I stayed at a BackPackers for the very first time. I briefly mentioned The Space Hotel Melbourne – with a bit of information and photos. Today I want to share with you more details and lots of photos!
The Space Hotel Melbourne
I have never thought to stay at a Back Packers before. Normally I stay at hotels…like Novotel, Holiday Inn and sometimes the Hilton! Have you stayed at the Hilton in Sydney? David and I did many years ago when we went to a family members wedding. Gosh was that weekend fun…we have never stayed at the Hilton before, and was amazed with the decor, the service, the location and the feeling of class from the people coming and going.
