Hubby says I’m having too much fun at his expense in these blogs and he’s probably right, but he has the option to
risk his own life and create his own blog where he talks about the strange things I do if he likes.
So he got me “hard at work” as he puts it, at 5.30am and on my computer, writing. Morning face. Don’t ask me why I was writing at that time, I have no idea. My sleep schedule is all messed up.
Whenever we travel, no matter if it’s for one or two days or one or two weeks, when we arrive at our accommodation, he will take everything out of his suitcase and put it away in the drawers and cupboards
I prefer to leave everything in the suitcase so that I know I won’t forget anything when it’s time to leave.
Just another one of our
maddening cute differences.
We had breakfast at this cute place on the water. I think it was called Cargo. Just about every place we’ve been to in Melbourne has had wait staff from other countries.
And mostly they’ve all been so nice and eager to help.
I really felt like scrambled eggs on toast and hubby was getting a full breakfast, but he got me to order some bacon on the side because he wanted more but didn’t want the staff to think he was a gutz. Ha ha. I say, embrace the gutz! But I ordered it for him.
The food was so good!!!
I love walking through this area. The water makes things so peaceful and compared to the rest of the CBD, there’s not a lot of people around.
What do you think of the colour on these buildings? I’m still not sure if I like it or not.
We walked to DFO and you would not believe the amount of things we bought!!! I mean talk about efficient shopping!! Hubby is 6’7″ and finds it hard finding pants that are long enough but we found some nice ones for him at a good price and I got some Kayano’s for a fantastic price; not to mention the rest.
It was starting to warm up and we decided to walk along the river knowing we’d eventually get to Federation Square where ACMI (The Australian Centre for the Moving Image) is.
I noticed that just about every restaurant/bar along there is offering some sort of Aperol cocktail!!
How could we not give into temptation. We stopped for a drink and a rest and enjoyed the view from our table.
Caught a glimpse of the MCG on the way to ACMI
We also saw the horse drawn carts and carriages. I wasn’t sure how I felt about that.
Also noticed the signs (there were many around the place) that some people had left
The ACMI was just as amazing as I remembered!!!
Oh look there’s me! (above)
I was trying not to hurry hubby along. All I really wanted to see again was the Matrix thing.
Hubby and I had fun creating some videos.
Apparently they are getting rid of this so if you want to try it, you have to get there before April 19!
Check out our clips below..
We decided to walk to the MCG to see if there was the off chance that we might be in time for a tour. I’ve always wanted to do that.
Turns out the tours go for three hours and it just wasn’t right for us today.
The photos above are some I took along the way (it’s about a kilometre walk from Federation Square)
Love the Dennis Lillee statue. There were more but he was the only one I took a pic of.
We walked back into the CBD and down some cute lane ways. So much to see here.
We stopped at a place, I think it was called Schnit, on Elizabeth street. Hubby was a bit nervous I think but you know what, the food was sooooo good!!
In fact, after we sat down, I heard another customer telling the girl behind the counter how good the food was. It was such good value too. Very good pricing.
The pic on the left is my schnitzel which was actually a veggie one. It was so delicious and the fries were seasoned so well
Oh, and check out this little guy who decided to join us for a little while.
I’m not normally a bird lover but look at this cuteness!
We walked around some more, did a bit more shopping and made our way back to the apartment. I won’t bore you with pics of our purchases but we were both very happy!
It might be shocking to some, but we still hadn’t used the gym so we decided to go down there. Unfortunately it was full! There was one treadmill left so I got on it but hubby felt a bit out of sorts as the people who were in there seemed to all know each other and “held” their equipment by leaving clothes and water bottles by them.
It wasn’t comfortable so we didn’t stay long.
We were going to use the pool but that was full of people too. And later on, when we were walking outside, I realised that the pool which is on the ground floor, is totally visible from the outside! Not that it matters that much but it’s the kind of thing you’d want to know before disrobing.
We ended up at the same place as last night for dinner. I didn’t take pictures but I ordered the same salad and this time it was double the size!!!
We both ordered the same food but last night, we had to get some fries on the way home as we were still hungry, this time, we ordered a bit more food and it was just way too much.
Tomorrow we’ll be back home. We have an early flight tomorrow so I won’t be blogging.
Thanks for sharing this journey with us!
Until next time….
