We have been to Melbourne a few times in the last 12 months – sometimes for Blogging events and sometimes for Family reasons. Normally I use public transport to and from the Melbourne Airport but this time I had a bit of travelling to do.

Alpha Car Hire in Melbourne (to the Rescue!)
This time I was going down to World Vision Australia which is not in Melbourne city but about an hour drive from Novotel St Kilda. With public transport it would have taken about 1 1/2 hours- and that was having to change trams/trains etc! I thought it would be easy to have use of a hire car.
Our January Trip To Melbourne
When we went down in January (to our older sons Navy Graduation) we hired a small car from another company. We couldn’t even get a car big enough for all of us back then as Melbourne had so much on in January (I think the Tennis was on?) and everything was booked out 🙂
It would be so nice to say that we are Living Like The Rich and Famous but that is so far from the truth that I would be telling you a lie! I would like the rich statement but you can keep the famous bit.
Novotel St Kilda Amazing Room
A few weeks back I was thinking about where to stay while I was in Melbourne courtesy of World Vision and also attending the Digital Conference 2012. I know St Kilda (not really well but I know the main streets!) so I started concentrating in that area. It is the most amazing place – cafes, restaurants, night life, beaches, Luna Park, and I so love the gorgeous culture.
Last time I was in St Kilda I stayed at the amazing Tolarno Hotel. Gosh is that fantastic – the colour scheme sounds really weird but it worked. Every wall had the most amazing Art pieces I have ever seen.
