Some travel advice

    I drove from SA to Melbourne last Friday and didn't bother booking motels. I just waited to see how I got on.

    I stopped off at Stawell and saw a motel advertising rooms at $85. I took it. Nice and clean.

    I left Melbourne Boxing Day, taking the ferry from Sorrento, and taking the coast road back home.

    I pulled in to a motel at Port Fairy and booked a room.

    "That will be $270,"said the man behind the desk.

    I nearly had a heart attack but I was tired and didn't feel like checking elsewhere.

    Checking my iPad it would seem that $270 was a typical price for Port Fairy that time of the year. If I had known I would have motored on to Portland or some place inland. However, Port Fairy is a nice place and worth stopping off at.
