Ok now for the greatest hotel breakfast/lunch in the history of mankind.
Chocolate fountains, y’all.
Off days in Melbourne… Not much to report, other than a shredding Mario:
AND, a fantastic coffee shop I found. St. Ali, South Melbourne. They roast their own coffee and it’s jammin. I don’t even really like coffee, but I enjoyed all of these…
Next is Dubai. I can’t believe we’re playing in the Middle East.
Australian Logies tonight - and we walked the red carpet!
It’s been two years since we’ve been in Australia. It’s good to be back, this is one of my favorite island/country/continents in the entire world. Even if I do lose an entire day flying here. Looking for a video but can’t find one of good quality… Working on it.

Check this out - this is the biggest candy table I’ve ever seen backstage. It’s also the only candy table I’ve ever seen backstage.

Please forgive my lack of linearity, if that’s a word. I’ll try and get things back in order.
