【墨尔本】第一印象

凌晨时分,飞机终于降落在墨尔本国际机场。机场冷冷清清的,并不多人。来之前,听说澳洲的入境手续很繁杂谨慎,常常需要大排长龙。 我和妈拉着行李,拼命地快步前往入境处,发现 —— 根本~ 没~ 有~ 人~! 十分顺利通过入境后,深深地吸了一口墨尔本的空气。

可是,那有那么多时间闲着? 已经凌晨了耶! 步出机场,迎着稍凉的微风,找到了 Skybus 的售票亭,买了两张前往市中心的票。

Skybus 官网 24/7 的机场巴士服务,真的很方便。 巴士上还有免费 Wifi,刚好可以报个平安。

2:33am – 终于拖着疲惫的身躯、沉重的行李,踏入酒店房间。1208号,Travelodge Hotel Docklands. 多番折腾。两个女人,从 Southern Cross Station 下了巴士后,来回地走,搞不清楚方向。即使已经大略把路线记录下来,还是无法正确地找到通往酒店的路。

入夜后的 Docklands 十分幽静,路上完全没有行人。寥寥无几的灯柱,撑着一丁点的亮光,在黑夜里特别显得孤单。就像我当下的感受,孤单、无助。

后来,还是跃上了一辆的士,直接来到了酒店门口。原来,才这么近! 我甚至怀疑我们并没有在的士里超过一分钟! 可是,又能怎么样呢?只能说,这是最安全的选择吧?

嘴里啃着便利店里买来的烤鸡生菜三明治,喝着最简单的矿泉水,感叹着这悠长的一天。当然还顺便感叹了一下 —— 这里的物价也太贵了吧! 三明治 – 5澳币? 两瓶矿泉水 – 7澳币? 我也是醉了!

费了一番功夫才让我妈去洗澡了。哈!

墨尔本第一印象?—— 凉!贵! 静!
