Guns & Butter: Melbourne Travel Guide

G'day, Mate: Here's the Travel Guide for Melbourne, Australia using The Guns & Butter methodology: A trip is composed of two factors: Labor And Lazy...

Aura Hotel Melbourne: Flinders, Flinders, Flinders!

The US dollar is too strong to justify paying in points in Australia (see Too Cheap for Points, Too Much for Cash: DoubleTree Darwin). My bank account is too weak to pay $120 a night for Holiday Inns.

Con-X-ion: How to Get from Melbourne Airport

You have a few options from Melbourne Airport. The popular one is the SkyBus which costs $19.50AUD.

Darwin to Melbourne: Burn Those Avios!

How do you measure the value of Avios? Most will assign a dollar value of 1.5 cents. From Sydney to Darwin, I flew business for 20k Avios and took advantage of the never-ending shiraz.

Do You Take Photos of Your Rental Car?

My Rental Car is part of the TPOL Down Under Trip Report. While many bloggers write Hotel Reviews, few take the time to laud their rental. That's not fair to the vehicles that make adventures possible....

Frontier Hotel Darwin: My Case for Hostels

I decided to cut back on my spending and find an economical accommodation in Darwin.

Mercure Kakadu Crocodile Hotel: Name Says It All

Growing up, my favorite hotel was the Dolphin Resort in Disney. It has giant fish statues on its roof. When I learned‎ that there was a hotel shaped like a Crocodile in Kakadu National Park, I had to see it for myself.

Too Cheap for Points, Too Much for Cash: DoubleTree Darwin

Don't you hate when a hotel is too many points to validate booking and not cheap enough to validate paying? The DoubleTree Darwin was 19k points a night or $88.

Qantas Business Sydney to Darwin: Off to Croc Country

I've said my fair share of negatives regarding 737 business class (see Ethiopian Business JNB-ADD: The Worst Flight Experience). My flight from Sydney to Darwin was on a 737 but my take on the flight is only positive.

Qantas Club Sydney: But for Baristas…

I thought the zoo was in Melbourne. I was wrong.
