Next up: Melbourne

   In a less than a week I’m exploring yet another place in Australia…MELBOURNE! Needless to say I am excited to keep checking off my bucketlist.

I booked my trip back in July when TigerAir was having a HUGE sale! My roundtrip flight was $87! Can you believe that!? I couldn’t pass a great deal like that up!

So now the time is quickly approaching and I am shamelessly spending all of my spare time planning my itinerary. Even though it’s a quick weekend trip I am packing in as many activities as I can.

Basically I’m planning on eating, seeing sights, eating, taking pictures, eating, drinking coffee, and finding more great places to eat! Good thing all of my walking will burn off all of my calories! Plus vacation calories don’t count. Right? Unfortunately I won’t have enough time on my trip to do the Great Ocean Road (which I was really looking forward to) but I’ll just have to go on another trip haha!

What I’m most excited to see

  1. St. Kilda beach-think colorful beach huts lined all up and down the beach, plenty of streets with great shops, and cafes with some of Melbourne’s best coffee. AND PENGUINS!
  2. City tour of Melbourne-there is a free walking tour of Melbourne’s architecture and history! Right up my alley!
  3. China town and local markets-a great way to check out the food/arts scene.

There are many more items on my list of things to do but you will just have to stay tuned for my next post about what I actually did on my trip!

Have any of you been to Melbourne? Any places you recommend I visit? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
