Jo has provided us with some excellent tips for our upcoming trip so we will spend the next day or two revising our itinerary by adding an extra night in Melbourne - we now have been invited to dinner at her grandparents house. She has also helped us identify the perfect place to stay for an overnight in Daylesford which is approximately 1 hours drive from Melbourne called, Peppers Hepburn Springs Retreat. They have some lovely photographs of the spa / resort here.

Our weekend with Jo
Last night I said good bye to a friend I first met eight years ago. When we first met, Jo was a student traveling from Melbourne Australia to attend a summer program at Harvard University. Because her flight was delayed she arrived in Boston too late to check-in at Harvard and she was in a bit of a panic trying to figure out where she might spend the night. My other half offered our place as well as a drive the next day to Harvard to help her get checked-in. Since that time we've remained excellent friends and stayed in touch via e-mail and the occassional call.
