eureka skydeck.
06 January 2013 / 0 comments

I am considerably scared of heights but only when exposed out in the open. And i would definitely kick myself over it if i didn't visit the Eureka Skydeck on my trip to Melbourne. Standing on the 88th floor, you can see the entire Melbourne city being stretched out like a still map. The sun was starting to set and light reflections from the viewing area got in the way, which was rather annoying. Thankfully, i managed to snap a couple of good shots before both the crowd and the absence of a tripod started disrupting my shots.

But even with the excitement of being up on the 88th floor, and the need to clear the pressure from my ears 5 times on the 38-second lift ride, the highlight of our skydeck adventure was actually when we discovered a photo booth! All attention was directed to cramming ourselves in that little booth and even queuing up for another round. The pictures: priceless.
