Melbourne – it’s a hell of a town!

general Comments Off on Melbourne – it’s a hell of a town!

Me, jumping in Melbourne
Dave and I had a quick weekend trip down to Melbourne on the last weekend of June. The main reason was to help Thommy celebrate his 30th birthday but of course I managed to add a couple of exhibitions in too.
Highlights:
Breakfast at Birdman Eating
Thommy’s party at Cavallero
Great accommodation – a really nice house in North Fitzroy.
Shopping/eating on Brunswick Street and Collingwood (haven’t spent much time around this area before)
Visiting Meet Me at Mike’s store. Pip who runs the store was so nice. I’m so happy to see someone “living their dream”! It’s such a cute store and really supports the local crafty community. If only there was something like it in Sydney.
Game On exhibition at ACMI
Art Deco exhibition at NGV. This exhibition was not cheap – $22 but it was very comprehensive, so much furniture, art, photographs, fashion, jewellery etc from the Art Deco era – the top notch stuff from V&A in UK. I thought it was freakin’ awesome.
Seeing Gabby and Ruby, while they are staying with Shio and Rohan (and little Miro)

Lowlights:
Wasn’t as freezing cold as I expected.
The taxi we called to go to the airport in Melbourne never turned up, so we had to drag our luggage out to the main road and flag one down in the dark.
Flight delayed from Melbourne to Sydney by about an hour.
