The beauty is in the journey, not just in the destination.
|The view from our hotel room|
|I'll take the top floor apartment thanks!|
|The Royal Exhibition Building|
|Maybe I'll take this apartment instead. I love the modern aesthetic and different textures.|
|The famous Melbourne trams. Nice, but I'd rather walk|
|The marina at St. Kilda - great part of Melbourne. Fantastic breakfast at Phamish.|
Views of the city from Southbank precinct.
|Restaurant under the bridge - on my list for next time|
|Old beauty and new beauty - St. Paul's Cathedral and Federation Square|
|More beauty - Jess and Mama Chickpea|
|Pretty lights inside the casino|
|One of the many arcades in Melbourne - shops and chocolate abound!|
|Local butter. Big slabs of creamy yellow buttery deliciousness.|
|Mangosteens. I've never tasted these. Probably nothing like mangos though.|
|Delicious breakfast number one from Kinfolk cafe - creamy oatmeal |
with yoghurt and poached pear and rhubarb. So perfect.
|Cupcakes at David Jones Food Hall. |

So there you have some of the highlights of Melbourne. There are more food pictures to come as Mum was in charge of digital caloric capture. I was far too busy enjoying the capture of calories in my mouth. There was not a bad meal, never a dull moment and I feel so lucky to have enjoyed a wonderful holiday with two of my best friends. We have never shared a holiday like this before and I hope we get a chance to repeat it very soon. Thank you ladies for your company, your assistance with doing a bit of damage to my credit card and for being two of the most beautiful people I have the pleasure of knowing.
Let's go somewhere warm next time though...
