Melbourne long weekend
11 January 2016
Hello again :) Are you still in holiday mode? I am! I went back to work last week but it was a short one because we flew to Melbourne for a friend's wedding and happened to find the very best donuts while we were there. Here's a super quick recap:
Melbourne has so many great cafes. First stop was Duke's Coffee Roasters, we also visited Little Rogue and my favourite - All Day Donuts.
We stayed in a fancy hotel (it was cheaper than Airbnb!) and I bought a new dress for the wedding that wasn't black :) Here's a snap of the stunning couple who were relaxed and generous hosts.
We squeezed in a quick stop at the National Gallery of Victoria before it was time to fly home - the Andy Warhol and Ai Weiwei show was packed and I especially liked this exhibition and the few David Shrigley paintings we saw. A sneaky tip - gallery cloak rooms are really handy places to leave your luggage.
And a small revelation - I wore Nikes for the whole trip (minus the wedding) and it made the world of difference. It meant we could explore on foot (we walked for 15 kilometres one night, from Brunswick back to the city and then to South Wharf) and I didn't get grumpy once.
It's so lovely to be blogging again, I'll catch you later this week :)
