A Taste for Adventure

By Alicia Pettis

On the Way to Darwin.

Hopped on the last flight of the trip, leaving from Melbourne to Darwin yesterday evening. The flight was about 4 hours long and I was so tired I slept most of the trip, messing up my sleep schedule a little. So worth it though! Flying is exhausting.

We got to Darwin at around 10:40 pm and were greeted by warm rain and humid air. It was too dark to see much around, but I could tell the terrain was definitely more tropical here. The people were also dressed differently in Darwin than in Melbourne. Seemed less city like and more rural.

After picking up the luggage, I took a taxi to the hotel. Showering for the first time in over 24 hours and finally being alone was very welcomed. I got to bed a little after 12 am and quickly fell asleep. That was the first time I got the chance to lie down in a while, so the feeling was pretty darn relaxing.

I woke up this morning to 83 degree weather and a light rain. Got “Brekkie” at the hotel after checking out.

Now I’m just relaxing, updating the blog and reading my history book about Australia. This my current view…

I’ve got about 5 hours until I have to meet up with the tour group just up the street.

Planning to just walk around and take in the city. No better way to get to know a place than just walking the streets.

I can’t believe I’m officially starting this adventure tour tonight.
