When we woke up on what was going to be the our very first morning in our #Room753 trip to Australia we found out it was 11 A.M. and that the breakfast at Sofitel Hotel was already closed for diners -they finish at 10 A.M.!-.

I remember the day very well. It was night time, and I was drinking tea in my favourite mug while spending a quiet night alone with the lights dimmed when I received an email from my contact form.
