Chris and I flew to Melbourne
The purpose of the holiday was specifically to EAT. And boy, did we eat!! We ended up having about 6 meals a day (breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea, dinner, supper), plus snacks in-between. We probably ate our weight in food each day.. and became FATTIES 😉
The food in Melbourne is awesome. Loved the cafes, loved the restaurants, loved the markets, loved checking out all these new places. We were blessed with sunny, warm days.. so there goes the theory that the weather in Melbourne is always dreary and crap!
Anyway, I want to do the Melbourne trip as a photo-blog since no one’s interested in me babbling on, so I’ll post in pieces as I upload photos!
Expansive living room
Room overlooking the skyline
Breakfast at The French Quarter Patisserie
So quaint with al fresco seating
Selection of sweet pastries
Buttery, savory goodness
Chilling out and waiting for our breakfast. LOL at Dad & Chris wearing the same-coloured clothes
Sausage roll – I loved how the mince was home made and it wasn’t oily at all!
Roast vegetable and mushroom scroll – this was SUBLIME. So good we had 2.
Chocolate croissant – weirdly in a bun instead of the normal flaky pastry. Nice though!
Lovely coffees to wake us up
Me and Chris 🙂
YUM the food’s arrived!
Then it was SHOPPING time!
Victoria Markets.. one of the largest markets I’ve ever seen
The delis were incredible.. was so tempted to buy everything!
Sausages = my favourite food
Tons of stalls selling fresh seafood
And loads of meat too. But strangely, loads of VERY WEIRD animal parts
Ewww!! It was almost enough to make me go off meat. Almost.
Cookies & biscuits galore
She was right. Best churros I’ve ever had, FAR better than the stuff in Sydney
And that’s the END of the first part of the day….
