Melbourne Shopping

Sales, sales, sales! Were there sales? Yes. Such variety that a poor Kiwi bloke could actually enjoy the shopping experience. Breakfast sales, lunch sales, and dinner sales featured as well as clothes sales. Staying in the heart of the city in Little Bourke Street was a great idea with everything a short walk or tram ride away - and walking was not hard.

Be sure to buy a MetCard so you can make use of the excellent trams service.

We had some great eating experiences including Pellegrinis in Bourke Street which was really good Italian food in a unique atmosphere - like being in their home for dinner; and the 100 Mile Cafe which sourced all its food from within 100 miles of the restaurant - neat concept; and of course Degraves Street for coffee and raisin toast for breakfast (poached eggs on toast was good too).

Yes, that's where I was suppose to be for the long weekend.

But nooooo ... I had to be sick.

Agreed, Little Bourke St is really handy to evreything.

Nevermind, have postponed till January next year. Cost us a couple hundred for change but it couldn't be helped.
