My housemates Elle and Sam were going overseas for a year but before they went they were going home to Hobart for a couple weeks to say goodbye to their families and sell the last of their things for some extra cash aaaand I went with them! At least for the weekend..
During the day I just went to work and left a bit early and went to my housemates sisters place in Hawthorn and met them there. They spent the day packing and doing last minute Melbourne stuff. Unfortunately they locked their keys in the car which cost them over an hour of packing time. Pretty funny, sort of except they were kind of rushed to get all of the stuff they wanted to keep in their car. I felt so bad because they had to cut out a lot of stuff so that I could sit in the car! But they ended up getting most of it in I think.
We bought some snacks in Port Melbourne for the boat and then drove on the boat. There was SO many cars..funny thing, Sams car is alright..not thaat nice, but all around us were these brand new porsches, there was like 8 of them! But anywho, we went on the ferry and it was pretty nice. Pretty busy. We went to our..chairs..as we were too cheap to buy a cabin or whatever. We went back down and went for a wander and got some food from the buffet. So expensive!! After food we went over to the lounge and had a couple beers and watched the footy with a bunch of old people, it was awesome.
After the footy was over we went upstairs and wandered around some more, explored the upstairs of the boat and then went to some random table and played cards for a while before going to sleep. Those chairs were damn uncomfortable. Had a pretty average sleep to say the least..
