Melbourne Airport & Travel Tips For Australia – MEL

Melbourne Airport is a fairly small airport relative to some of the airports in the world.   However, it does offer international flights.

I personally don’t mind the smaller airports because they are usually a lot easier to deal with.  It’s like raising a baby versus a teenager.  The bigger they get the more annoying and frustrating they become.  It’s not like I have kids or anything, but I know I was a handful when I was in my teens to early 20s.  I’m still kind of a handful.  I guess people are right when they say “men never really grow up.”

When I was in Melbourne, I flew into Melbourne from Los Angeles.  It was like flying from a hurricane into a light sprinkle.  I didn’t have an issues with traffic or congestion.  There was practically no one traveling during the holidays, so I was in and out in less than 20 minutes upon arrival and departure.

However, there is one tip I have for you.  Don’t forget to bring your own toilet seat covers.  There are non-existent in Melbourne and all of Australia.   Seriously, there is NO toilet seat covers.  WTF?!  None! Nada!  Zilch!  This should be a national issue in Australia.  I tried calling the Prime Minister regarding this matter, but they’re not accepting calls from any American at the moment.  No bueno, amigo.

Actually, I take that back.  You could always use the toilet paper for seat covers.  Okay.  New tip.  You should always lay a layer of toilet paper inside the toilet bowl before you drop a deuce, so the water doesn’t splash when you’re dropping the kids off at the pool.   .

Besides that.  No issues.  It’s definitely one of the easier airports to get in and out.  It reminds me of John Wayne Airport in Orange County, CA.
