Some observations from travels

A day in Melbourne, Australia

We have arrived in Australia!  Well, a stop over in Melbourne for a day (8 hours) that is.  And what do you do?  Stuffed our luggage in storage for the day and hopped on the express bus to the city.  I’ve never been to Melbourne and everything I heard about it was great.  It’s known to be the most European looking state in the country.

The guide-book we got from the airport said that if we only had a day in the city we should energise ourselves at one of the cafes before we head off for the sights.

So our first stop was Centre Place, where cafes lined the narrow alleyway.  Would french toast, eggs benedict, energy drinks and coffees do?

Four and a half hours in the city and we experienced great views of architecture, old and new buildings, good-looking people (well, the spring races were on) yummy food and fresh air!  We have arrived in Australia!  The city is beautiful!  I must visit another time as I haven’t seen the biggest Queen Victoria Market, what about the galleries, and the shopping!!!

  1. Melbourne is such a vibrant city! Those photos make Melbourne look like a European city 🙂 I’ve been a few times and didn’t notice some of these cool little things about Melbourne. Going back again next month so hopefully I can look at it with a fresh pair of eyes. I’ll have to keep a look out for the red double decker buses. I had no idea that we had them here!
