    Re: Albury

    So here I am, waiting to board and have ONE small carry on....

    WTF are so many SO selfish... As usual the majority have a travel bag on wheels - largest allowed. Then they have a laptop or other hand luggage and a backpack... Thus bording becomes a pain as they all struggle to place their bags in any place they can.....

    I need Coffee!!!

    Re: Albury

    AM we did not suggest any places in Albury as we know what you found also. We have not been able to find a decent coffee place in Albury. All we found was highly priced "inferior" coffees. CS has spoilt us too. We would be happy if anyone has found a place and can recommend such for our trips now and then....not Wodonga. :(

    Re: Albury

    Had a 1/2 decent coffee at breakfast..

    But o had to explain how to make it ... Temp was good and a double shot pulled short in a small cup as a flat White.

    Now to debrief and sing off with the client and try to return home. To those you read or responded.. Thanks... Not your falt that a good coffee on the road is hard to fine.

    As a full time vocal coach I dont recommend this technique because last time I tried it I was arrested! ;D Turns out the other half of the duet didnt have that version of the song.... JUST KIDDING. Thanks for allowing us tied to our desks to live vicariously through your caffeine addled travels!

    Re: Albury

    Cafe at Ramsay only do super scalding milk!!!!

    Place is full.. And they get their beans from a top roaster on the gold coast...

    I let it cool and then tried.. there was once a good bean but the scalded milk was so much worse as it cooled. I asked and was told.. If the milk is not screening and 70 plus it gets returned and they want it nukes. They then went further to say that those that like warm coffee need to move with the times!!!!!

    If warm milk (60) is old fashioned - I am happy to live in the past.

    Can not wait to get home... Missing the wife 8-)

    Hi AM..
    Hope you have finally got home. We have had that ride from Albury on a few occasions. Get in -sit down- buckle up and hang on. We have observed your mentioned cafe when passing by to go to the blood suckers. Walked straight on. So understand your comments. Enjoy YOUR coffee. :) You have left us with some wild weather and floods.

    Got in late and then saw a mate ... So put him in the car and took him home, before heading to my place...

    So over all: A long two days, plenty of air and transit time, along with some stressful times on the clients site...

    ALL THE TIME HAVING CRAPPTY COFFFF.


    Had a large Double shot and some leftover at about 9.40pm and went to rest at about 9:50pm... Woke up at 5:00am on top of the bed fully clothed and still had my shoes on... That wind was knocking the place around a bit... So disrobe, got all cold and then got back into bed...

    giggled like a schoolgirl... Some one else was NOT happy...

    Just sending Daughter off for ballet sessions down in Sydney...

    Albury is done and dusted.
