TechEd Australia is off an running now. One of the things I’ve learnt over time is that when you are in a place for any length of time, the way to make it feel like home is to get a few things that help make it easier for you… and they can save a few bucks too. I’m up here for both TechEd, some client work and some rest and relaxation and I’m here for 8 days in total. Here’s a photo of a few supplies I picked up… Note the chocolate… and fresh fruit… oh – there were apples and Milk too to but they are missing as I forgot to put them on the table.
In all seriousness though – staying at a serviced apartment instead of a hotel means the cost is kept down. Shopping at the local supermarket for things like breakfast cereal, and some late evening snacks will save you a heap of cash and having a few drinks in the fridge means you can avoid the crush at the bar if you want a drink before bed.
