After my birthday Josephine and I headed down to Melbourne for a few days.  It was my first visit, so we had plenty of exploring to do.

It was very cold and rainy, so we didn’t get to venture out and about as we would have liked.  Mostly we found nice places to eat and drink, and did a spot of shopping.  I’ll show you what I bought for myself in another post I think!

We checked out Meet Me At Mikes in Fitzroy.  I’ve been following Pip’s blog and twitter feed for some time now, so it was very exciting to go to her store.  She wasn’t there the day we went, but we were served by her lovely daughter Rin.  Josephine and I both found ourselves cheap little summer skirts – yay!

This is all the graffiti we managed to photograph due to it being so wet and cold.  I’d like to go back another time and spend some time photographing more of the alleys and laneways.

Great coffee at Sonido on Gerturude St.

A tasty lunch of Arepas at Cruzao Arepa Bar, Brunswick Street.

On our last day we headed out to St Kilda to check out the famed cake shops and ‘beach’.  I loved this old theatre.  I think it’s beautiful.

We shared a slice of the famous plum cake at the Monarch Cake Shop, St Kilda

Back to Sonido for another coffee!

Just before we left for our flight home we headed to Hwaro Korean BBQ for a few beers and snacks.

More photos from our trip are on my Flickr page.
